    Did anyone ever refuse a trip w/patient?

    I just asked my agency for another case today. I've had it with the mom yelling at me and trying to blame me for things I didn't do. Like today she started yelling at me because I finally stood up to her and asked her calmly why something wasn't done for the patient and she started verbally abusing me. No, I don't know what it's like to have a sick child, but that doesn't give ANYONE the right to talk to their nurses the way that she has. She needs therapy!

    That is the million dollar question. Anyway, you did the right thing AND protected your licence. The family I'm with now won't let me call the MD either. I was in a situation a few days ago where my patient had 4 seizures in less than an hour, and our orders state that if the patient has 3 seizures in an hour to give emergency med and call MD. Well, parents didn't want me to do either of those things and told me I can't give the med without asking them first. Even though the order specifically says the nurse can give it. No where does it say "ask parents first"...
