Okay I got some good laughs out of the "whinny" reply post. To correct myself it's "whiny"
I did write a disclaimer at the the bottom of my original post that there are misspelled words. I must admit I didn't bother to try to correct, so sorry :) But its good to be able to laugh at yourself.
I was venting a bit, yes. But unlike some coworkers I've come across it's no longer venting when it's done every time they come on their shift. I can't even get through my report without getting interrupted. I've worked at other facilities so, no, it's not only this current facility.
I have tried to sympathize with the nurse's responses and of course I relate with what they say, but it's when they have the attitude like they didn't realize they walked into a building with sick people and they carry the title of a Nurse.
I get questions like, "Why did they put such and such patient on my wing?"
How do you answer such a question?...woman, I don't know maybe the admission department doesn't like the shape of your head and they want to make your shift miserable....okay, I'm just kidding.
I do give empathetic responses. I'm done :)
I love being a nurse and I do love my fellow nurses, just for the record. later.
