I do not want to go to work tomorrow!!! I was up on the floor today to speak to my manager about my schedule and the whole unit was freakin' nuts.
We have at LEAST
three screamers right now, and about 6 families that expect private duty nursing for their family member!! Plus one patient who needs to be a DNR, but the family absolutely refuses to change the status. Throw in a couple of docs who think you are their private rounding nurse, and you have the makings of a great day!! :stone: You know it is not a good day when your manager finds a table to do her work on and sets out in the hall so she can watch two patients to make sure they don't fall out of bed! (Heaven forbid if the family would watch them, or even worse restrain them either chemically or physically!!)... I better be heading off to bed now
I think I will need all the help I can get.
