    Has anyone left nursing job due to COVID19 virus?

    For nurses that rely on daycare, some of the daycares will be charging all day care for kids. The other issue is that if a kid gets/gives the virus to another child. IDK how someone can get to work without any child care. Schools/daycares are a source of child care for many people.

    Refusing Care of a COVID-19 Patient Due to Inappropriate PPE

    A nurse without proper protection may at some point become useless to the cause.

    Protection of the nurse is paramount. If we all drop like flies, we can't save anyone.

    Considering Quitting my Job

    Atleast you will be alive to get another job once this thing blows over.

    Afraid of dying

    The news is reporting that healthy people are dying from it. Not that I am trying to scare people.

    Refusing Care of a COVID-19 Patient Due to Inappropriate PPE

    I don't work on a med-surg floor. We had enough mask to go around prior to COVID but now all of a sudden we can't find any and none are becoming accessible. There is something off about this and it leads me to believe that this is being done on purpose. I hear what you are saying about the government but for mask to disappear in a matter of a week......hmm.

    Why hasn’t pay increased? Hazard pay, etc.?

    Not enough nurses have quit and not enough of retired nurses are refusing to reverse retirement and come back to work. All hospital nurses are exposed. Hospital units are interconnected. The tubing system could be caring the virus.

    Acute COVID, What We're Seeing

    How does one disinfect a ventilator so that the virus isn't spreading through the equipment ?, given this is a new virus (we haven't necessarily had enough time with trial and error)?

    Where are the N95 mask when you need them? We go through all of the hastle to get fitted every year and when the time comes when you actually need the dang thing, someone is hiding them in the vault in Fort Knox, Kentucky.

    All that is happening on my unit is wipe downs with bleach wipes every so many hours. Pts can come up to the unit with suspected corona symptoms and nothing gets done about it until days later. This type of behavior is the norm though. It has been going on long before COVID so why would COVID change anything. We all sit apart from each other for report but everyone still piles up in the medication room together and I don't see anyone wiping the machine down. I do though. I am guessing someone is either hiding all of the mask or stole them because staff can't find any. The gloves we use are very cheap. When I put them on they tear. God help me, I pray, wash my hands and hope for the best. I will save my money and plot my exit at some time later down the road but no, it isn't because of COVID, it is because of other stuff.

    School is cancelled but clinical is not? (COVID-19)

    It's no different from when you become an RN, because you will be expected to show up to work in most cases whether the schools close or daycares close. Nurses signed up to put themselves on the front line to care for people. It's part of our job. Wash your hands and follow safety measures at the clinical site as you would if you were working as a nurse.

    I quit

    If you don't work as a nurse what else would you like to do/can do? I ask because some people can handle the work (nothing wrong with you if you can't) and some can't. If you have another option, consider it. What can it hurt. All nursing jobs will carry a certain level of stress as you have people lives in your hands. With that can come all sorts of other things. If you aren't up to it, face it now and move on if you can. Will it get easy?, no (the work is not easy), but you may rise to a level of being able to handle it better. I work on a psych floor that seems to be changing into a medical floor. There is a pt with tubing in her room and all sorts of unsafe equipment to handle GI care that she needs. This person came to the unit due to an overdose and wanting to kill herself. She should be on a medical floor. Things are changing and not for the better. Less of everything, support from management, unsafe ratios, etc. I stay to do what I signed up to do and to make a living. I like caring for the patients. The other stuff, not so much. Not sure of where I will be in the future but this is where I am now. I know to make the most of it.
  14. Did you kill anyone?, no so don't worry. If your instructor needs to talk to you about your performance he or she will. Otherwise keep keeping on.
