My least favored area to work would be...

  1. ...Oncology and a 'Burns" unit. I'd be crying every day. How one works there without psych is beyond me, and I work in psych!!

    Kudos to those nurses!!

    Everything in life should cost a buck-three-eighty!

    I hate Peds. Don't want to see really sick or injured kids. My highest regard goes to Peds nurses!

    I much prefer placentas and umbilical cords...

    I will beg, cheat, and steal to get out of having to take care of an OB pt. on the psych floor (had 2 last week). Just not my bag. Regular pregnant women are crazy enough, thank you!! lol!

    Anything with blood, guts hanging out, sputum or bad smells I would rather not have to deal with. Love psych. Our wonderful ED washes up some of our smellier patients before coming to our floor....sometimes.
    I do have one really smelly patient story. Generalized anxiety D/O woman who came in regularly (when she got too anxious of course). You could always tell when she was being admitted too because the smell of a filthy barn would waft onto our locked unit. We would escort her right to the tub filled with dreft til we got some of the dried animal stool out of her feet and off of her legs and hands. Seems she had trouble taking care of her 20 or so pets in her tiny apartment when she got too anxious and walked barefoot in animal stool all day.
    Aside from that, psych is great.
