    Med error could cost my job? Need help!

    You should have told the nurse that came to get you about your patient that the pill fell, etc, and you'd talk after the shift?? Also, what's up with the "nerve" pill? If you are taking Rx. meds, you'll have to give a complete list of all thing you take. Goodluck, Shygirl

    Difficult Post/CVA Patient

    Hi, Did anyone do a depression scale on this patient? Sometimes after a stroke patients are depressed. Chemical imbalances are to blame. Is this patient getting any type of therapies? O.T. or P.T.? Are there any family members that you could talk to to find out what type of foods this person is used to eating? Just some ideas??? Shygirl

    UPDATE: Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program

    So, Am I misunderstanding this. To "forgive" the student loans, one has to be out of work? I read something about willing to relocate? Shygirl

    I made her cry

    You were being manipulated. Ask her to tell you next time you work together that if she is going for lunch and is going to be doing "work related things" to tell you first. Shygirl

    Husband or School?

    I'm sorry that this is happening to you also. Nursing school is very difficult, especially if there is family involved. Sit down with your husband and talk to him quietly about how things are hard for you. There could be some other factors involved.....like when you are finished, will you be earning more than him? Maybe he feels threatened? Tell him that this is a sacrifice time and ALL must sacrifice for the benefit of your education. Was he up for you going to nursing school? Was he supportive then? Ask him why the change. He probably isn't used to the chores that he must now share. Good luck. Shygirl

    Do you wear gloves

    I work in LTC and pretty much KNOW what everyone has. Yes, of course I wear them when giving a suppository. No, I don't wear them when giving shots. Shygirl
