To the witchy co workers: Just because you have been in the facility for 14+ years does not mean that you no longer have to be a team player, ignoring me when I need your assistance in x2 assit, only hurts the pt cause I will go find someone else. If you think your so high and mighty and don't need to be bothered with the newbie, go back to school and become an RN, otherwise buck it up and learn how to be a team player..
To the pt that MUST be the center of attention: My kids play that ****. I know it good and well and I will ignore your petty concerns while I am with your roomate in the middle of an asthma attack. I am sure you heard the story about the little boy that cried wolf..
To the family members of the combative: Seriously, your kidding right.. "I am sorry that my mother scratched/bit/pulled your hair/ smacked you..ect.. but she is tired when she is on meds" .. then really you come here and take the abuse because apparently you couldn't handle it, hence you sent her here.. so give me and the poor old women a break and let her get her meds.
To the pt that refuses to eat because they think you will spend more time with them.. seriously.. your not the only feed on this assignment.. do not refuse the meal and then notice that I am walking away and say.. "excuse me, I am hungry".. seriously, you got hungry as I took away the tray but the 20 minutes of bribing, beggin and yapping with you you weren't.. gezz ..
