I'm back, missed you all

Posted

:D Hi everyone

I've been away for awhile. I'm back. The move to North Bay went well.

I have a great new job as a Nurse Supervisor in a long term care facility.

I just love my job. The nursing and admin staff are the greatest and the residents are awesome.

I'm on top of the world. Couldn't ask for more.:D

Welcome Back. Best wishes for continued good times at your new job!

Welcome back. Great news on the job and the move. I hope things continue to go well for you. Let us know.

Thank you for the great welcome back.

I think I've found my niche in Nursing. although I really enjoyed home nursing, working at this long term care facility has open my eyes.

The residents are so thankful for everything you do. They are a unique bunch. Sometimes I hear staff complain. So and So did this or said that. I just tell them it is there little bit of control that they have over their lives and they should be happy as it is because of these residents that they have a job to go too everyday.

My point of view is if they don't want there bath right this minute go to the next one and come back.

There is always someone who wants attention don't B**** it only makes them more head strong.

Don't tell them that they can't go home tell them someone will pick them up later or that you'll phone and let the family know that they would like to hear from them.

Life is so much more easy if you don't go the way of a power struggle.

On a sadder note I lost a resident today. He was a stubborn head strong man who could do nothing for himself, I always seemed to be able to get him to smile, laugh or just simply cooperate with the staff. It is a blessing for him. But I will miss him dearly.

I realize that 90% of my residents are there to have a dignified death, somehow that doesn't make it easier.

Tommorrows another day.

I'm glad I can get up and look forward to another day at work

I'm so glad you're there for them. Wish there were more of you to go around. So sorry about your resident. I DO know how that hurts.

Hugs to you, Sixes.
