  1. Has anyone ever had a patient they especially related to? Last week, we had a patient admit with the following noted in her dismissal summary: "Her diet is very poor. She lives off of squirt pop and chocolate chip cookies." When I r...

    Thanks, me too. I've been reading a book, "13 Things Mentally Strong People DON'T Do" and one of the suggestions is not expecting immediate results. It's becoming clear I will have to be patient. Things will get better in their own time. The jo...

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    Had a therapy appointment this afternoon. Today was a good day to have it due to earlier frustrations. Found out I likely have adjustment disorder with depression and anxiety. Today we talked about: 1. Deciding whether my current job is a ...

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    I've noticed the other manager has nothing to say to me after sending out that email asking about making staffing assignments fair. I'm guessing because, in order to do so, they wouldn't be able to cater things to her liking. I don't think she has ...

    It is sometimes. I went back and forth this morning with staffing and the DON regarding more staff for my unit. I explained to them that it is not reasonable to count me as a second floor nurse and get my own job done. I asked if we could at least...

    The idea came from our HUC, who stated she doesn't want the other manager to get it because she's condescending to other people and gets away with it. The HUC doesn't believe that someone who is disrespectful to others should get it. We're also won...

    One thing we've decided to do is since no one on my unit has received Employee of the Month, we've decided to each nominate each other every day in the hopes that the other manager doesn't get it. 🤣

    One thing I have thought of is having surgery for acid reflux. I used to be able to enjoy Fritos, for example. Now, they seem to make me sick. If I had surgery, I might be able to enjoy my preferred foods again. My mom told me that she doesn't th...

    Wondering how that statement made you feel that way? Sorry, not trying to play anyone, just genuinely confused.

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    Just found out the other manager is being nominated for employee of the month. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it can't be that I'm not working enough hours. After all, I used to work 18-21 hours and still didn't get nominated. Somehow, sh...

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    One thing someone had mentioned to me is instead of always being angry and trying to avoid COVID patients, I can use this experience to allow me to become a stronger nurse. I keep mentioning that the other manager should get the COVID patients, but ...

    I've noticed no response to my request for 3 weeks off. I think I've probably done something to irritate them

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    Is it unreasonable to find a different position if my current one won't accommodate my request for limited COVID exposure/unfair assignment of COVID patients?

    Taking a Long Leave of Absence from Work

    What you're saying makes sense. I'm not sure why I became so obsessed with the paxlovid. I knew early on that I couldn't have it because of the potential for strong interactions with a medication I've been taking for 15 years (so obviously disconti...
