Your post did not make sense. I dealt with the heavy responsibility of what happened for weeks. Is that not enough? I took everyone's feedback and it's still not enough? I fought for my job AFTER the patient was safe at home and I was canned and it's still not enough? I fought and by God's grace they decided to make me eligible for rehire without having to go elsewhere (another hospital system) and it makes you think I didn't listen to anyone's feedback? Yes, now I'm defensive. This decision is a GOOD thing. I mean did you expect me to take the road Kim Hiatt took? It looks to me as though if others don't see you wailing and tearing your clothes in despair that you don't care. I was in a deep depression for weeks, over this. I followed the protocol and was within my right to ask for an appeal. It saddens me to see how some people in person or on a forum could take what's written at face value without seeing how difficult and sick I got over the patient, then how depressed I got after being fired, then how I woke up countless nights sweating from yet another nightmare of reliving that night, and so on and so forth. So please, if it's condescension you were attempting to deliver and expected me to accept it I won't. I take what I experience as my learning curve. I fought and it was approved. I won't apologize for fighting for my career. If this response upsets or rubs you the wrong way then I can't help there because your assumption rubbed me the wrong way as well.
