    This happened yesterday. I did file a police report today. We'll see what happens.

    Wuzzie got a reaction from CardiacRNLA, BSN in Where are the Nurses? Patient takes his inquiry about lack of nurses in the hospital to Heloise.   
    If the hospitals could bill for nursing hours separately instead of including us in the furniture I'm guessing we would have ratios of about 1:3.

    Nobody here is condemning you and you are targeting THE WRONG PEOPLE with your obvious rage. What did you expect?  You came here and started verbally spitting at us. If this is how you are treating people who did nothing to you or your husband I wonder what your demeanor is with the people you actually interacted with. 
    You might benefit from talking about this to someone who can better help you make peace with your experience. I'm not sure strangers on the internet are the best choice.

    No, it really isn't. And please direct your anger elsewhere, like at the people you really have an issue with. Do you walk up to random people on the street and start yelling at them and calling them names because you're cheesed off at someone else? Also, calling a nurse's missed attempt at an IV a "screwup" is over the top. Pot meet kettle.

    I'm not convinced her experience would not be described differently by the staff involved.

    Wuzzie reacted to Sour Lemon in Is 54 too old to get hired as a new RN?   
    You'd be surprised at how valued pliability is. Being "old", wise, and experienced can actually work against you.

    Wuzzie got a reaction from Snowchild in Is 54 too old to get hired as a new RN?   
    This is very  much true. I am 54 but athletic and active. I'm frequently mistaken for someone in their late 30's to early 40's. I've seen people the same age who look and have the physicality of someone 20 years older. However, the reality is that life is catching up to me as it is wont to do. To the OP I don't want to tinkle on your Wheaties but it would serve you well to think long and hard about this. Nursing is a tough gig physically, mentally and emotionally and you're coming into it late in the game. It may be hard to find a job much less do it but if you think you're up for it and have the support you're going to need then have a go.
