Thought for the day ... just kinda venting

  1. Thought for the day:

    It's a real ****er when you're giving IV push meds for the first time and you have both your instructor carefully watching your technique AND your addict patient (who is very familiar with "gaining intravenous access") critiquing your performance!

    It's been a loooonnng day ...

    Do you know what is worse??? Having a nursing tech tell me "well a goooood nurse would do..." What the H***? I was doing him a favor by providing am care, glucose checks, v/s, feedings, and I&O to two of his 7 patients. Then he has the balls to try and tell me what a good nurse would do! Hmmm, I think a "good nurse" would tell him to stop trying to instruct the students and find something else to keep him busy. It was also hard to take anything he said seriously when he had a boogie hanging in his nose the entire time he was talking to me. I kept trying to think of a nursing diagnosis for the good nurse I am!!
