This is an idiotic and insensitive thread I'm not going to associate myself with this crap
The beliefs of those who frequent it are beneath me and I'd rather not participate
Admin. PM me I'd like to deactivate/delete this account thanks!
Hahaha ridiculous and stupid.
Alright then. I would refuse to care for him.
Maybe that's politically correct enough for this website
Alright nancy enjoy your ability to walk tomorrow at work.. Legs are fun things to have.
Tell the 8 year old that's dead he is "just a human being who deserves care"
I'm not mother Theresa just because I'm a nurse... Sorry but I first hand witnessed this ***** actions. It's not like prisoners who I have no idea what they have or haven't done. This guy got personal... You tell the people who have no legs he deserves compassion.
Yeah... You guys live in Boston and be there that day and tell me "oh I care for everyone the same!!" "Prisoners are sometimes the best patients!!" "He isn't proven guilty yet!"
That dude and his brother wrecked havoc on our world for a week.. Terrorized our suburbs. Threw ******* grenades everywhere.
He can suffer in pain for all I care. Just as long as he lives to see the electric chair and get his ass handed to him in jail.
If LOVE to be his nurse. Yeah I'd give him great care.
This is an honest statement and I'm sure many agree...
Ahhhahah thumbs up to the above. Love it
I think you acted amazingly and did everything you possibly could have. I really hope the fact that you were involved and stood witness to his treatment from beginning to end gives you some sort of closure and peace.
You sound like a wonderful mom. Someone any person would be lucky to have in their lives.
We used washcloths at the hospitals I've worked at. Some had the wipes at a point but both stopped using thing due to cost concerns.
In definitely not buying them myself that's ludicrous. Let the patients family buy them if its that important. Sorry I'm not mother Theresa and they aren't my parents...lol sorry if that sounds mean but very few people would purchase their own special butt wiping products for work....
Here's the difference, we had commercial sanitation. They cleaned them well. Your situation sounds sketchy without bleach, that's gotta be a violation? Or health code?
You gotta be flexible... It will help you so much if you can be flexible, stay a perfectionist to a degree...But accept nothing is perfect.
If you can't do the above--how about being one of those nurses that audits charts? Case management? (They love to micro manage other people's work haha maybe you would thrive there?)... Legal type nursing? Like a consultant maybe
I'm a little OCD too, in certain ways and with certain things, but I roll with the punches. Thinking about work outside of work ruins your life haha. I try very hard to leave it where it belongs.. Before you make drastic changes think about it
Transfer after 6 months... You could just really be bored... Some people work faster than others. Maybe it comes more naturally for you? But you gotta see what life is like when you aren't on orientation because its also possible that your preceptor is doing a lot of the busy work? Nights are slow for me too, but I worked days prior so I'm just used to a different pace.
You know the right answer I think
I was always told it would be okay to look them up if it was "forward" in their care on the same admission you had them for... So you can't look if you didn't have them that same admission... But if they got transferred to icu or simple a different nurse had them it was okay? I don't know because frankly, I never had enough time to look up pts I wasn't actively caring for haha, too busy..but I was curious..
Let your unit educator know that you have witnesses unsterile/improper cath technique and suggest an inservice... Or fill out an anonymous variance and don't dont don't name the nurse in it. This is a good balance between making sure she and others know it is wrong and not letting everyone know you snitched.
I mean seriously people we work with mostly women and i can understand fearing retaliation haha...
I can't tell you how many times I've seen caths inserted like 5 times, in the wrong hole or meeting resistance etc etc only to have them pushed right back in after they have coiled up in the vagina. I've done it in exasperation and it's not right when it comes down to it.
