    I'm a nurse, not a babysitter!!!

    Yasss!! I agree!! I don’t feel like I worked so hard to be a glorified babysitter . seriously considering going back into skilled nursing . I wouldn’t even know how I would react if I had a parent ask me to do that. Probably with ummm I don’t think so but nice try on that one .

    How much do you make?

    Same .I make 21$ an hour no benefits . Here that’s good pay because in the hospital and doctors office you are Lucky to make 15-16$ an hour .

    Parent/camera nearby...can u read?

    Oh my goodness and the above comments are exactly examples of when I would have had to say this JOB is not for me . Thank you for the opportunity to care for XXXYZ but I don’t think I’m a match for this job and I’m sure there is someone out there who could better serve you . Lol . When a family goes through a lot of nurses I’ve learned by other nurse friends that it’s usually because they can’t be pleased and the expectations they have are not within normal.

    Pediatric patients...parents are KILLING me!

    You said a lot in those last few lines. Why the parents think we are babysitters , maids etc I will never understand . I’ve recently been going through something similar myself because of lack of setting boundaries trying to help the mother out but honestly she does absolutely as little as possible and I’m tired of it. No offense but if the baths aren’t done on the families time because they think it’s your responsibility it’s plain and clear neglect on the mothers /fathers part.

    Pediatric patients...parents are KILLING me!

    I’ve been in home pediatric nursing for 9 years and what I’ve noticed parents tend to get very slack once a nurse enters the home care scene. In home nursing care is not to be so the parents can do nothing it is to assist with providing the best care for optimal health and quality of life for the child or patient . Baths are in a nurses aid job description not the Lpn . While I would occasionally help I would not do them all .
