    Live in Fayette county. Have been a nurse over 20 years but am fed up and with the low pay and back breaking work. Lack of respect is big on the list too. Any ideas?

    Why is this board so quiet? Don't we have issues/problems to discuss? how about happy circumstances with our practice. I feel like I am alone in the boat. Come on people, let's get a active board started.

    Mary 915:

    How do you like working on ortho? Was one of the first things I did and it was a hard but rewarding place to work. Deep bone pain is difficult to control and pain meds are a big issue with the patients. Do you use wound vac's, contanta-vac's, or polar pac's
    much? So much has changed since the old balanced traction and pin care of my first days. Let us hear from you and how it is going.

    Hope you have a good idea of what living and working in WV is really like. Some of the area's are great to look at but pay is low. There is not a lot of peace and quiet when 4 wheelers are allowed to run the mountains and do almost everyday. Don't get me wrong, I love my home place, but it is a hard place to make a living, and even though there is lip service to the nursing shortage, there is little being done to address it. Mandatory overtime is a real issue in lots of the NHF and hospitals. Let us hear from you. This board needs some action.
