You know the one. They have fewer patients, fewer tasks, lower acuity patients, and still every small hiccup is a disaster. They routinely stay hours after their shift to wrap things up even though they have exhausted every other nurse on shift by hounding them, interrupting them, and guilting them into completing a large sum of their tasks. These nurses are also the ones who, when you are in an impossible situation and need a quick hand, can't be bothered...demand that you find someone else to help because they have patients of their own to take care of. Nevermind the fact that your own situation might have been a bit less dire had you not taken 45 minutes away from your patient load to help them through some emergency.
Ugh. Getting too damn old and too damn tired for this ****.
Does this nurse exist everywhere or just on my unit?
