Ok, now you know me a little better...if you made it this far! I've been off of work all week - trying to get my house organized. I got one big project done, but my house is a mess - wish me luck!


I'm not going to comment very much about work last week - mostly because I've blocked it out of my mind (and partly cause of short-term memory loss = hey, I'm almost 40, it's allowed!). I do remember one of my patients had an order for Cardizem because his heart rate was in the 150's...but the nurse never bothered to start the Cardizem drip. She didn't even know it was ordered. When asked how long the patient's heart rate was in the 150's, she said "about 3 hours now." Ughhhhh! I stopped report right then & insisted she go hang it right now. Scary stuff.

Anyways, I saw "Nights in Rodanthe" last night. It wasn't bad. Half the movie I spent staring at Richard Gere & Diane Lane while thinking "They are getting old!" Which then reminded me that if they are getting old, I must be getting old too. Sigh!

Today, my brother & I are taking his kids to the county fair. The weather is beautiful & I just know there is a funnel cake waiting for me!

Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!

I just have to tell you-your blog is extremely inspirational to me. You are saving my career at this point. It's really nice to see that the experiences and situations that I am going through right now are normal to new nurses. I graduated Dec 07 with my ADN after working as a CNA for 8 yrs and LPN for 1 yr. I stayed at the nursing home I was working at until 3 mos ago when I accepted a staff nurse position in the float pool on night shift. The floating includes 7 different floors but for "new" nurses-they stay on med surg for the first six mos. I oriented for the first eight weeks and have been on my own for about four weeks now. All was ok until this last week. It would take me way too long to describe the craziness I've been through but knowing other people have gone through it and survived is very comforting. PS-why do experienced nurses put on a front with the new nurses and act like they've always "known it all?" I don't get that-it's as if showing they're superior makes them feel good. Whatev. I'll make it! Thank you!
