I learned that I will be able to swing a part-time schedule this summer financially and my boss has given me the OK. I will also not be taking any summer classes. I have made plans to travel overseas with my girls during the summer. I am excited.
I learned that some co-workers will straight up lie doing something when they didn't. I mean, why tell me you were able to straight cath a resident and collect a urine sample when you did not? Or that a particular order you received from the MD has been carried out and ordered from pharmacy when it has not?? Or claim that you don't know how to do something because you were not trained on how to do it which is clearly a lie because I was one of the nurses who trained you? And even if that were the case, there is always at least one other nurse in the building so why didn't you ask them? Or read the facility manual? I don't get it. So frustrating.
I learned that I am very protective of my specialty, LTC, and I need to skip some of the posts about it here for my sanity. It is not a crime to hate LTC but my goodness I get overwhelmed with all the negativity about it. Oh well.
