    Tell her to stick it where the sun don't shine and give it a good hard squeeze. Nursing is a 24/7 job. Sometimes poop happens and sometimes things just have to be passed on. Don't let her get to...

  10. Drowning in LTC
    Honestly it kind of sounds like you are at a poopy place. I've worked three places and none of them have expected a nurse to pass medications to 35 patients. Where I work now a TMA can pass...

    If she is being brought out of the ICU and back into her home are her risks of dying to infection or something being miss higher? I can't imagine that the home care/private duty agency taking her on...

  16. Abuse swept under the rug
