Yes. Those are not normal post-op vital signs.
Do NOT be afraid to call a doctor.
HR does care about this issue. She need to report it NOW to her manager and occupational disease. She will require initial labs and follow labs for 9 months.
Best wishes to your friend.
Your patient, your call.
Then your and the team leader's precious "feelings" .. would not be involved, and the patient would get more timely care.
The nursing program must be much different in Canada, than the U.S. Here, students do not give meds without a check by the preceptor or instructor. I cannot fathom how you can be responsible for medication administration.
Only your instructor knows the consequences here. Call her now.
I recently got hired at a new job in December and got off orientation about a month ago.
However, I really do not feel like nursing is the right career for me and thinking about quitting nursing altogether. I've been a nurse for about two years now.
When I was working at LTC i thought things will get better if I go into an acute care. but i still dread going to work every morning and it's actually worse now. My new manager and coworkers have told me that I am doing really well and they like me there.
The stress is getting worse everyday and unbearable for me at this moment so I've decided to go back to school and study something else. I feel terrible for leaving a job after only a few months when the hospital has invested so much in me.
My question is, how should i let my manager know that i am leaving? I am still in my probation period which will not end until July. How many weeks of notice should I give my manager?
Good that you got that off your chest. It was very well said.
No, that nursing manager did not and will not give a rat's patooti about YOU, you are not a person.. you are their commodity. Most of them do not care about anything, but the corporate bottom dollar.
I would say.. pick yourself up.. and dust yourself off. But, thinking you need professional counseling.. to move on.
Best wishes, please feel free to PM me.. I have been there, done that.
You have enough experience to be hired for travel. Travel is not an easy gig, I had 20 years and found it difficult. You will be expected to hit the floor running with 3 days of orientation. Only YOU know if you can handle that.
