I have always thought I make pretty good money, not as much as I want but enough to live on. Then my friend figured out how much we make per patient....$3.71. :o I make just under $4.00/patient to make sure there are no post-surgical complications, no medication reactions, no neurological changes during the night. $4.00 to deal with a doctor who doesn't want to be called. $4.00 to hear "my medicine is 5 minutes late", to clean up urine and stool, turn patients, walk patients, deal with pharmacy, radiology, PT/OT, respiratory. I am so depressed...where is my chocolate? :crying2:
