I am a nurse of 2 years and a recent hire on a acute medical/surgical floor.
I'm learning so much, which is great. However,
it also feels like a whirlwind.
Does anyone have any pet peeves - behaviors that patient's have that make you frustrated?
However, I so dislike when patient's who are A & O curse in conversation.
Or if they openly belch when I am nearby them or speaking to them. Thankfully, these are only minor incidents. Of course I always mask my inner thoughts and treat the patient with all due respect.
Anyone have any pet peeves? How do you deal with the situations or do you just let it go?
