    I had worked hosp, but 25 yrs ago,now in ltc,since. hospice comes into our place,but I think reg. hospice facility does things differently. My prior blog was what do hospice nurses say to ppl who don't have a belief , or are agnostic, or pt's who are athiest, in order to soothe them as they,the pts are dying? One person answered,only. I also believe in trying to keep pt. care and the $ factor separate, but it's still a business.

    read your insightful letter. I'm wondering why your hubby isn't working? If he were,would you still want to work hospice, thinking you'd love it? sue

    It seems to me that a lot of republicans don't participate in voter polls,(which is why so many turn out unexpected winners for the position of whatever, esp president) I'm for mc cain/ paulin

    Knlck on wood,but my ltc facilitiy feels that res's loved ones feel more comfortable seeing the same faces all the time. The average age of nurses is is 50 ish, most have been ther at least 10 yrs. Also, they know that when family members are well aquainted w/ nurses they are comfortable with , they are less upset, if a mistake is made, which we all know the worse case scenario on that!

    californiaLVN;It's like you said,shouldn't I be starting to settle, relax, then retire?Instead of doing all this rn studying. do you feel it's unfair to have to work so hard, so long spend so much to be an Rn when in some ways you feel ,as a good LVN you shouldnjust have to take a few tests, maybe get grandfathered in? I could be you talking. I'm 58, & started classes. Now they want me to basically start all ove,cuz I've been in ltc too long(away from hosp skills & knowledge , yet 1/2 the time I'm advising RN's on how to do such & such , how to talk to dr's, what to tell them what you want, plus monitoring cnas etc.Also are you thinking will I ever recoup the money i've spent on all this education? will I throw out my back, or have a heart attack next month? Am I close/sue

    btw, when u do call/page the dr's and they call back pretty quickly, always thank them for getting back to you so soon, they seem to appreciate his , and may be more attentive to your perceived needs! sue
