    LTC Charting: A Beginner's Guide

    I wish I could print this out and post it at my work. The nurses on my shift are wonderful charters but the other shifts are AWFUL at charting. I would inform a family member of a new med order but not necessarily a change in dose, especially if its like 2 senna instead of 1. I also will call certain family members if I know they're very involved in the resident's care.

    Everyone Won't Succeed. And That's Okay!

    There are a ton of forces working against many people in a number of ways. Ernie (for some reason I read the whole story as his name was Emie...the r and n are really pushed together in this font) has a lot of things working against him. Same goes for other things. For example, I consider golf to be a sport of rich people. I presume most golfers (serious ones) have a privileged background that allowed them to afford lessons and course fees so they could become good. Whereas anyone can pick up a basketball and bounce it.

    Why Nurses Don't Want to Be Identified in Public?

    It's a toss up for me. I love telling people I meet what I do as I'm proud I made it through four years of school for this! On the other hand it does always lead to questions of "what is this lump on me?" and so forth which can get old. I wear my nametag to and from work.

    Just a "Little" Word

    I, too, use big words frequently, and sometimes people don't know what they mean. The other day a coworker and I were talking and I was saying that so-and-so is "passive aggressive." My coworker asked what that means...I thought everybody knew that.

    Young, Thin, and Cute New Hires

    I respect my elders who deserve respect. If you're 80 and naive and rude and disrespectful you do not deserve my respect because you're old. Work as a server for a few months then you'll reconsider what I'm saying. I've met young respectful customers and old nasty men and women. I don't respect people for their age but for their attitude, compassion, dedication and experiences. Not their age.

    Young, Thin, and Cute New Hires

    Does my mother? Yes. But I've met 40 and 50 year olds who are naive and glib. So age is not an indicator of anything in my opinion. Geez just because someone is old does not mean they automatically get my respect. Sorry.

    Young, Thin, and Cute New Hires

    A little immature, don't you think? Look, she is right, aging should bring experience which should be respected but just because someone is older does not mean they have more experience.

    Here is the deal. You need a mix of experienced nurses and new nurses so the experienced nurses can train the new nurses to be good nurses so when the baby boomers retire, sh!t doesn't hit the fan. Hospitals in my area will not hire new grads. Why?? When the older nurses retire who is going to be there that is experienced?
