    Was I wrong to report a co-worker?

    No, you weren't wrong. What's she's been doing is essentially patient abandonment, even if she does "eventually" come back from her breaks because she's leaving a dependent person totally alone.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this OP. Anxiety can be absolutely horrific. I have an anxiety disorder and went through something similar to you. The only advice I can offer is to see a therapist ASAP, and a doctor to possibly get on some antianxiety medication. Also, if you can, try and find another job.

    CNAs starting IVs

    This is why they never should have replaced LPN's with CNA's in the hospital setting.

    Question about blood pressure medications

    Are there parameters in the MAR that say when the bp med should be held?

    Those are all reasonable requests. Getting the tape on just right to get an accurate reading for the pulse ox can be tricky, and if he doesn't like his feet messed with, it makes sense to have dad do it since that is what he's most comfortable with.

    What are your/your agencies polices about lifting?

    That lift looks pretty good.

    It would be nice to have a patient like him.

    Does he like classic rock? Queen is a wonderful band (ok, well I'm a bit biased but I think they made some of the best music ever LOL). I wish I was good at math.

    What about a ceiling lift with a track? Other than that, what you are asking doesn't seem unreasonable. If he's able to help with the transfers (i.e. being able to stand like you've said) that makes a huge difference. It sounds like you've got a good set up for him (downstairs room, walk in shower and shower chair etc).

    Is my situation normal?

    Run for the hills!

    That's pretty reasonable. What things does he like to do?

    I'd work for someone like you, but i don't do nightshifts and vents make me nervous.

    Don't make the nurse wait in the waiting room at appointments.
