Quote from nessajune21
I was mortified. I kept apologizing and the MD and the brother kept saying "It's ok" and "we all make mistakes." But, then they had to say the cursed words "Don't cry" and I lost it and had to leave the room. Of course my face never lost the horrible red glow of crying and humiliation.
very easy to understand.
first you were "mortified".
then the kindness and compassion of the md and brother, i am certain, humbled you to literally, tears.
i think most of us nurses, can smile knowingly, since we understand completely.
wipe those tears, nessa dear.:icon_hug:
what you have to offer in terms of your evident sensitivity, will more than compensate for these pesky 'set-backs'...
and will provide your pts w/gratifying comfort and security.
so for every notable mistake we collectively make, there is always (always, always) a silver lining, where we can potentially be enriched as a result of it.
move forward, sweetie.
yrs later this crap still happens to even the most experienced of us, and it never feels any better.
'growing pains' are never easy, but always fruitful.
it's all good.
