Can you shit in a second?
I don't know why I attract this kind of psych patient, but they seem to gravitate to me. It didn't help that I was STILL tired and not sleeping more that 4 hours at a time. I walked in with my bullshit-o-meter already in the red and was not in the mood to deal with people. There is a nurse that we are all soooo very tired of. She weighs almost 400lbs, speaks with a New Jersey accent and has poor grammar. However, she isn't dumb, she has her masters and is a NP (nurse practitioner). She practices as a staff nurse, but none of us know why. The er is fast-paced and almost always busy and she just doesn't keep up. It gets so frustrating to have to pick up her slack. I have never seen her take care of a sick as shit patient, she doesn't do CPR and I have never seen her help move a patient off of a stretcher. (essentially any of the physically demanding parts of this job) I talked to K about all this at the pool today and she agrees. This gal can't do the freaking work.... not sure what we can do about it though.
Off for the weekend for a change, however the cop is working. Our schedule is ass backwards for the next week and a half. I hate that. We always seem to pick at each other when we are on reverse schedules.
Don't have too many good stories to share.... maybe its the chlorine but I need a nap.
