GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS, WHEREEVER YOU ARE!!
Well, another nite at work!!:angryfire :angryfire I wasn't here 3 min. when the nite all ready began to go DOWNHILL!!
First thing is we have no CNA for tonite--she called in & they can't find anyone to replace her--so it's just the 3 of us nurses.
That was all the time that was needed to put me in a REALLY BAD MOOD!!
We had 2 empties and they filled them almost immediately!! Then, the one new admit that was in a semi-private room--has a diagnosis of MRSA-- so he needs a pvt. room which we don't have.
Then the floor we needed to trasfer him to gives us grief---------geez--the RN did the entire admit--what's there problem!!
Oh well; Now we have another empty -- that will be my admit this time; so all my patients, Charge and a probable admission!!
You can see why I'm getting down, down, down by the minute.
I'm beginning to dislike the place more & more.
It seems like most all of our patients are from nursing homes and all have HUGE pressure sores.
A couple of the day RN's are probably going to be leaving all because of the type of patient's we are getting. This is supposed to be Hem/Onc Renal unit and most of the time we don't see these pt's .
As one nurse said, if she wanted to work in long-term care, that's where she'd be.
Why does all the staff have to be Chemo-Certified and I'm OCN Certified if we are not even getting those pt's????
Well, enough of the rant!!
Thanks for giving me a place to vent all of these negative & hostile feelings!!
Roy, can't wait to get home and check out the song of the day.
How's the orientation going????
Hope your friend has a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Soldier's wife--Hope your day at school goes well!! Good luck on the eval!!
adrien-- A Latte would really go well right now!! SNOW!!! Here in Chicago, they are talking about some snow flurries on Thursday--that would be awfully early for us.
That's one of the reasons why DH & I want to go south--we want to be away from snow & ice!!!
Well, lots of stuff again when I leave here--DH has his PT then off to Cosco and then to Office Max. Got lots of stuff to buy.
I need to get supplies for all the card making in the next couple of months---Sweetest day. Halloween, Thanksgiving & of course, Xmas. I don't know if I want to make my Xmas cards out of Postcards or Note Cards.
I got a few last year on postcards & they were kind of cute.
We had a wonderful visit with SIL & BIL yesterday!! They will be leaving for Phoenix for the entire Winter & Spring---lucky guys!!
Well, got to get back to the pt's---have LOTS of blood draws in the AM
