Help me not to quit!
Encourage me! I love patients.
I love easing their pain. I even love holding thier barf buckets and packing wounds.
I can't seem to get the paperwork straight.
And tonight was the worst.
And on top of it I had a young girl who had vtachs and PACs all day long!
I kept getting calls from the tele monitor tech, and I told her doc who was there at the desk.
Then later in the shift I would call her doc, tell her what the monitor tech said, and her doc said, "Give her more demerol until the cardiac doc gets there."
So, I did what she said.
She eventually ended up in the ER, (long story, new hospital, no one in ICU yet).
End of story is I got my butt chewed for not telling the floor manager that the doc wasn't doing her job.
I feel terrible.
I thought the doctor was the final authority.
Now, I know better, but I feel like such a boob!
I honestly don't know if I'm smart enough to do this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There's so much to learn.
I NEED ENCOURAGEMENT OR I'LL THROW IN THE TOWEL!!! HELP!
When does all this stuff start to jell in the brain?
Am I just stupid?
Or is it a dog eat dog world and I'm wearing Milk Bone underwear????:uhoh21:
