    "just" a school nurse rant

    It happens to psych nurses too! At a family dinner, a very bossy retired elementary school teacher aunt said when I was asked a "kid age" question, "Oh, she won't know the answer because she was just a psych nurse." Just?? Hummmppphhh!!!!! I'm so sorry about your family member. My mom had hospice at home and they were wonderful.
  12. I would refuse very firmly, tell her to give you more notice next time, and when she doesn't (as she won't) I'd just ignore her calls and messages after that.

    You know your nurse brain is still at work when....

    When I go into our bathroom and immediately look for the I&O sheet. When I give our dog a Benadryl in pill pocket and immediately write them both down in the margin of the morning paper. If one of the cats or dogs gets a scratch or cut, I'll take a quick picture of it so I can be sure it's healing. The vet knows you can remove sutures and calls you to say you should go ahead and remove them since it's so cold. He's already given me a couple "just in case" suture removal kits before.

    Clipping nails at nurse's station

    I worked inpatient locked department psych for too long to let a few fingernails bother me. Toenail clippings would be marginal.

    Funny student interaction today...

    A student with a question stopped by the house. He was wearing that lovely shirt.
