  3. Need positive reinforcement- people can be so mean!
    I know this sounds very is cliche, but those patients tend to irritate me more when I have pms. Hang in there. Some people are so irritating. Be glad they aren't on daily wound care, like my...

  5. I don't think I can do this anymore...
    The last few weeks for me have also been filled with annoying family members. It would be so much easier if we could ask the family members to step outside, like we could in the hospital, but in HH...

  6. Being a Nurse for a Killer
    Sounds like you're the judge and jury now. It was just an honest question, no need to berate.

  8. What am I going to do?
    Yes of course you can, especially since you doubt you'll even want to go back to nursing. Please take care of yourself, jobs will always be there if you decide to return. All the best.

  10. Attitudes towards LPN's
    Complacent? That would be like a runner scoffing at another runner for "only" doing a half marathon. Geez. Becoming an LPN is a huge accomplishment.

  11. And I continue my rant of MAs pretending to be nurses..
    And nobody doubts you aren't needed. You are. You just aren't there to assess.

  12. And I continue my rant of MAs pretending to be nurses..
    I am the person from the original post. As a nurse I have made mistakes. I have never ignored obvious signs of infection. I doubt there are many nurses who would do so. Fever, redness, pus at op site...

  15. And I continue my rant of MAs pretending to be nurses..
    Today I was at a patient's home and had to call the doctor. The answering service said "If you would like to speak to a nurse press 3" So I pressed three. A girl came on, "This is Tina" and I said...

  17. WWYD?
    I agree with what you did. 100% I am more concerned with having to drive 40 miles for a patient. WTH? I saw 5 today and logged 8 miles.

  18. What the heck is going on in Portland right now?
    I am really sorry that you are being forced into a new position and I hope you find one soon. When times are rough and only a handful of jobs are available, I would rather that they go to my neighbor...

  19. I am not in charge of your entire medical care!
    Yes, I do. I have posted a similar subject. You just get sucked in and have to say no. No is the hardest word I have had to learn to say. I know you know to call MSW, say no, etc. It just sucks to...

  20. What the heck is going on in Portland right now?
    I'm sure you are a great nurse. Oregon was once peaceful but is now becoming LA part two. In my biased opinion what little new grad jobs are available should go to qualified Oregon residents first. ...

  23. Getting sucked in
    That would be a good idea to bring up. Today I almost forked out $29 so my pt with an O2 sat of 54, without oxygen, who refused to go the hospital, would have a way to call 911. I didn't. I just...

  24. Getting sucked in
    I agree, and as I mature into nursing I am trying to do that. What is another MS patient doing getting a 90 pound slobbering puppy (i love dogs) when she is short on money and bedbound? She can't...
