    Super Anxiety at work

    I just left a l and D job I had been at for roughly 12 years to start at a new facility in the town we plan to retire.. I feel so out of my element and the drs are not friendly like where I came from..one of my patients went from 3 to delivering in the bed when the next shift came on and I got another vag exam wrong the other day??? I’m like what the heck is wrong with me.. but just trying to learn their way and moving to nights and totally uprooting my life has me so anxious especially now that these nurses think I don’t know what I’m doing but I’m a damn good labor nurse.. how do I get rid of this anxiety? Ugh!

    Decel Interventions

    What Are Some More Tricks Of The Trade With Prolonged Decels I Know The Fluid Bolus, Turn Off The Pit, O2, Changing Position, Knee Chest, Contacting The Docs But Anymore Tricks? Last Nite After A Pt Got An Epidural She Had A Big Old Decel I Shook Her Belly, Changed Position Checked Her And Still It Did Not Improve What Else Can I Do??? I Am A New Ob Nurse....i Want To Do Good And This Freaks Me Out...going Into Csections Freak Me Out Too Esp When Its An Emergency And I Am Being Rushed I Feel Like I Dont Do Good And Go Home And Dwell On The Situation I Am Really Afraid Of Even Calling The Dr's Do You Think I Am In The Wrong Area? I Am Just Sooooo Unsure Of Myself....
