>>734505786 Worst case? Well, i didn't see this one per-say, but I was working at the time. Some one left a cardiac patient In the hall on a stretcher (they were being admitted to the heart wing) because the room wasn't ready. Didn't tell the nurse, the patient was left in the hallway for over 2 hours and died are a heart attack. We had to change are transportation protocol as a result.
But there's a lot shit I see, mostly because we don't pay our nurses and over work them. So, they learn to hate their job and treat their patients accordingly. The general floors are the worst, there's no sense of urgency from the staff. I'd say our mental health wing actually has the best medical staff.
>>734505786 >Also do you have any upward mobility for your position?
Just realized I didn't answer this. Limited, but I can move on to full time positions in imaging, like CAT scan or something. It's a slight pay increase and I'll get benefits. I'm not interested though.
>>734506833 Probably the 10th time I was one a morgue call.
Now, Morgue calls don't usually bother me, I can move a dead body without getting the creeps. But this time, when I went into the freezer to drop the patient off, there was an infant bin. And there was a little baby wrapped up in it. Idk...
I mean, Old people I can deal with, and usually i don't give it too much though, outta sight out of mind, ya know? But I couldn't stop thinking about the mother, or the Poor NCU nurse that had to be present for that. I don't know how those nurses do it, dam glad they do, though.
>Really made me contemplate life and appreciate my own family a little bit more.
This one of the reasons I'm glad I got the chance to work in the medical field, even if only as a transporter. I'm getting married at the end of the year, and it's made me so much more appreciative of how lucky I've been. Some people have it rough man, like in and out all the time, or worse, they never leave.
>>734508325 My mother had a guy who swore up and down he worked for the Secrect Service under George Washington. He would regularly patrol the hallways during free time and act like he was talking on an ear piece. He would then proceed to report back to the main nursing station to give them a debriefing.
He knew he was crazy though, he was always voluntary and regularly checked himself in.
