TIME GOES BY QUICKLY WHEN YOU'RE HAVING FUN!

Yup!!...

It's been almost a year since my last post. I'm proud to say that....yes...i'm still working as a bedside nurse in a telemetry unit!. I tell you, some days I wonder why I even went back to this job. And on some days, it just reminds me to wonder again why I REALLY went back to this job!

Crazy right?

We've all heard about the trials and tribulations of a floor nurse. I believe it is our nature to talk and kind of gravitate to the drama in a hospital setting! But I realize, that, most of the time, 4 out of my 6 patients do have a calm and uneventful stay.

So, if i do the math, Oh Lord.....75% of my patients do not take up the 75% of my time. It's the 25% who just really....urghhh....keeps me checking if I have totally lost my mind!

I have never in my life felt like I was in a fetish flick when I was asked by a 450 pound woman to dig in her behind! I'm so sorry if this groses you out. But, It's true. It's what we at the bedside have to deal with all the time!

Granted she is able to move around and sit herself on the commode. But the problem was, she's not able to clean her behind after you know what because she cannot reach it. I remember a patient before who politely referred to the act as helping him " do the paperwork".


So, after triple gloving, yes, I did the inevitable.

No fun!

I went home that day, thinking if there was any way at all I could have handled the situation differently.Should have I refused to do it? Should have I delegated the task to the CNA who is by the way, busy giving a bath, and let my patient wait to finish her paperwork. I thought of calling my charge nurse and tell her I was in another patient's room and let her handle the delegating.

But, my conscience took over me. I just did not have the heart to lie about this so I can get out of doing the primary step in Maslow's heirarchy!

What would you have done?

After its all said and done, bedside nursing is full of the good, the bad and the ugly. It will take you to places where you've never been before. It will make you dig deeper into your soul, and last but not the least, the paperwork never stops.

No pun intended.

Just having fun!

Happy Nursing.

  31. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this.

  32. Academic writing is clear, concise, focussed, structured and backed up by evidence. Its purpose is to aid the reader’s understanding.
    It has a formal tone and style, but it is not complex and does not require the use of long sentences and complicated vocabulary.
    Each subject discipline will have certain writing conventions, vocabulary and types of discourse that you will become familiar with over the course of your degree. However, there are some general characteristics of academic writing that are relevant across all disciplines.
