Wow, today was sooo trying! My physical exam that was due today for school was supposed to have documented my tb skin test results (and it didn't--in fact, it didn't even show that I got one done, which I'm sure my BILL will though!!!) and I found out that if I can't find my childhood shot record (which I highly doubt I will be able to & I don't think that the health center will have my stuff from 17 years ago or anything) I have to re do ALL Of them!!!!! (which will cost a pretty penny because they are soo expensive).
I spent several HOURS at the clinic that I had my physical done at (it's a big one like a hospital) trying to figure things out with medical records department and the actual dr's office. It was so stressful. I almost broke down and cried. IN fact my face got so red that the lady working the med. records appologized over and over. I felt bad for her, I know it's not her fault but I was so stressed because it was all due today.
If the nurse that did my exam and the doctor would have listened to what I was saying and read the papers I gave them they would have done thier job and mailed/faxed my results of everything over to the school...but no, I had to go back in a few days after I had my drug test done and sign a medical release form (which they should have made me sign when I told them the day I had it done)...then they never did mail in my exam results but instead faxed them to my old clinic I went to (what???????!!!) before (what part of "mail this form to ___school of nursing in care of ____ dont' you understand??). And to top it off they have nothing to document that I had my tb skin test done (Ok, I said it twice but come on!). *SCREAM*
I talked to the program director and she is giving me until the end of august. (even though everything was due today) I feel like a fool. I wish the clinic would have done their job. GRRRRRR!
Well, I paid my 500 dollars for my books this afternoon. I still owe 100 for the rest of my books and then another 4,000 something this semester. man oh man. I haven't even started school and I'm feeling the stress already.
p.s. I'm not usually a complainer but I really had to vent! Luckly my 2 children were dolls today.
