SORRY THIS IS SO LONG...BUT I HAD TO VENT!Yesterday in clinicals i was caring for a patient who was going in for a scheduled c-sestion and upon arrival they couldn't find a fetal heart beat. well come to find out the baby was still borne. this was on a monday that it happened AND 3 DAYS LATER she was my patient of her. As i was doing my assessment on her she had not had a BM in 3 days, she had active bowel sounds, and she was not given any colase (AT ALL) which is a standard med that they give to post op moms. so i finish my assessment, oh i forgot to mentioned that on this particular day we were not given meds, so anyways i finished up and i let the nurse know about the patients concerns and asked her about the colase and other meds. well the primary nurse responds to me that she hasn't looked at her chart yet and as soon as she does she will see what has been ordered. ok, that was at 7:30 so i give it some time. this patient was ready to go home not to mention all the pyscho/social needs that was going on but she couldn't go home until she had a BM. So i waited for about an hr and asked the patient if the nurse had given her the medication and she responded no, so, i go and ask the nurse about it again. and the response i got this time was "oh yeah i already talked to her about it". ok, so i left it at that and around 10 i am doing my quick rounds and she still wasn't given anything and i ask her if the nurse came in and talked to her about it and she said no...so at this point i am frustrated because First the nurse lied, and its not like my patient is disoriented or drugged up or not abel to understand anything and to tell me she did talk to her and not even mentioned anything to her about it! So i finish up and mentioned to the nurse again about her cramping in her abdomen and she was asking for it and wanted something to help her and the response i got was rolling her eyes...in her chart it said give colase if no BM after 2 days give fleet enema...so, we are to get off the floor at 11 and i go check on her and told her the best thingto do is call her q 15 minutes until she gets her meds... and i did mention to her that i was letting the nurse knowabout her concerns...HOW ARE WE SUPPOSE TO BE PATIENT ADVOCATES IF WE ARE STUDENTS NURSES WHO THE NURSES ACT LIKE WE ARE OVER REACTING AND BOTHERNG!
