Ks mommy nurse 133 Posts Specializes in SNF, home health. Has 10 years experience. Sep 9, 2009 I have since left that position and started with another client. Like I stated before, I do not mind helping around the house and I do. I have swept that floors, cleaned the kitchen, dusted and everything for this new client. Today the mother made this statement to me... "could you make sure you clean everything up before you leave. I had to pick up the towels you used for "Shelly's" bath yesterday. The other nurse knows that I do not have time to do these things. I just really need someone to help me out with these little things because I don't feel I should have to do it. It is part of your job." Yesterday I gave my pt a bath and then right after I got her dressed her aunt wanted to take her to the park and we left. You can not leave the pt alone for even one second. I forgot by the time we returned to the home. I was really shocked that she would say something like this to me considering every morning her and her whole family mess the whole kitchen up and leave dishes all over including knifes and I clean it up without saying a word about it. I do not think that I am cut out for home health. I can't deal with these people always wanting more from me. I think I am a good person and try to go out of my way to lend a helping hand whenever needed. I am tired of everyone wanting more!Wow, I know how this feels. I thought I had it bad, but its nothing compared to you. Sorry, You're having problems with these cases or clients families. This is why I moved myself around with different families til I'm happy. But, again after 2 years with this family, they too are getting to used to me being there. I've been asked to do stuff that I don't mine, but lately I've been a counselor, a cook, and a hairdresser. Recently the oldest daughter moved back home with her 3 year old daughter and I'm asked by the lil one if I can make her food. Her mom's at school, and gramma is stil asleep. So she's awake wandering the house when I get there. I feel soo bad for her. I've brushed her hair and colored with her too. Mind you, my pt is asleep or sitting in his w/c and nothing needs to be done. Bt, this is getting old and I've told them already I can't. They got bothered about it. So, I'm keeping my eyes open for my next family.
