I'm not sure if it's me or because of the nursing home. I had volunteer and work at several nursing home before going to nursing school; in nursing school, we did clinical in several nursing homes too. All of the nursing homes were so dirty, way..way...understaff and the residents were suffering. I love working with old people but seeing all of these just disgusted me. I do not want to work in the nursing home or ever want to live in nursing home when I'm old. What is wrong with our nursing home system? Is there anything we as nurses can help? I'm afraid we maybe them one day.
