too young.... and innocent....:)
does that upset you?
we had a guy come in coding on an ambulance... so we are not gentle the er nurses... well we just cut his clothes off. well he was wearing jeans and like a short sleeve shirt. well underneath did not match what i was prepared for. he had on - wait for it a pink thong. and thigh high fishnet stockings. no bra though. i was dissapointed. and now i am new to this but not nsg, and i just was like ok. and said cut all this off. which we did. i said nothing more. we got the guy back. yeah can u believe that? no one lives thru coding... well its 50/50. so i guess hes part of the 50... and the nurses are like roaring over this pink thong thing and theyre like can u believe that? i just shrugged. it didnt really matter to me...? so they kept prompting me i finally say cuz they goaded me into it - well i mean the most shocking thing is that i mean pink? hes wearing black fishnets. its not like he had a matching bra. it shouldve been a black thong not a pink one.
the er doc was dying laughing. he goes good one. that made my day.
whats wrong with these people? i dont know this guy and its none of my business. really. im not here to judge you am i? its better for me to keep my mind neutrel on all this. it makes my job easier.
then later im working with my preceptor, shes a 15 yrs med surg nurse whos from the facility who closed by me and she got laid off. so she just came to the er this past nov. ok so we get along. they treat her badly though. shes very plucky and shes like yeah i dont worry about what other people are doing i worry about me. ok fair point. so shes actually like my height, which si kind of tall and blonde also, but she is very very over weight. and shes older than me but baby faced. well we have this old guy, and he says wow i like both of you. so i say nothing. she says really? so he says yeah you 2 are hot. she says you need to get out more...lol.
right after that opera guy comes and makes his appearance, and he drops to his knees at my feet and sings i need to take your pt to xray!!!! so i say ok opera man. and he takes my guy. ok. then i find out he only just started there at this place also. like a month before me. i said wow theyre really on a losing streak. opera guy and me geez. there are no standards.
which made the day pretty funny all in all.
on a more upsetting note, theres an older nurse named margaret. shes no lie 70. she cant do it anymore. like really cant do it. now in my head its like time to hang it up. i dont blame her. i feel freaking tired. but for whatever reason she still works. well we all had to take triage class. so youre supposed to get a 90 or more. i got an 85. but my other co horts who also recently started she said our 80s grade was fine b/c we are brand new to the er and basically we were taught the concepts in class and were tested right after. no study time. they gave scenarios n you classify the pt. so the teacher whos cool said its really good we did so well, triage is for a very experienced nurse in the er, and its not fair to take it now, but we have to b/c we will all be triaging due to other politics in the er. ok fine. she deemed us safe though. ok. well margaret the old nurse got a 60. so somehow the director of the er, heard she failed and emailed the teacher saying this is good. the one sentence. so the teacher said she thinks shes - the director - going to use this-the failing of the class - to get rid of margaret.
which upset me. you know not for nothing steven, drs will let another dr who has freaking alzheimers
practice and not say anythin g not to disrespect him. but the nurses are willing to throw this nurse away. i mean cant we find soemthing different for her to do? or let her work with another nurse? you see i could argue this better if she had the mind and not the body. then i could say give her like 3 new nurses and let her like make sure all their stuff is ok, and help out like rehanging ivs or like heres this med, go give this to this pt.... do you think id be out of line to say somehting to the teacher like we have to finagle this somehow?
my husband told me to keep my mouth shut and not get involved. which i get, but maybe i could get christine the teacher who has pull there to deal with it. i will have to brainstorm more. and then it wont be coming from me. itll come from here. she also was upset about what the director said.
oh and then there was a big outcry from the nurses we need to make more money, and they asked me and i said i think we make good money. and theyre like we work too hard for this. and i said yeah i wish we worked a little less hard and made the same money, but really we make good money. and they were like really? i said yeah. pls my parents thought id be a secretary. if i was lucky. they all looked at me like i was crazy. i get that alot now...
