Horseshoe, BSN, RN 5,879 Posts Nov 21, 2015 I worked 10 Thanksgivings in a row. The last one, a patient threw a carton of milk at me, saying "I said I wanted CREAM." It didn't hit me. I called the nursing supervisor, who spoke with her and told her that being assaulted was not in our job description. She wrote in the log for incidents that "nothing would please this patient. Nurses bending over backwards for her, patient conduct indefensible." Yay for supportive adminstration! That was the last Thanksgiving I ever worked. Yay for M-F/non holiday facilities!
