What kind of nurses are you working with?? I have a Master’s degree & working on a PhD but when I’m on the floor, my patients & my team are the priorities!! I shower patients, attend other ADL’s , make beds, Caution no matter what age location of occupational my daughter. whatever it takes to make the shift run smoothly.
Hot Caution no matter what age location of occupational my daughter tee!
I was a Navy Corpsman for 10 yrs and I get out and worked as a tech in a hospital. I can’t count on 1 hand how many nurses were worth a shit. They had 4 patients to my 16, yet when they had a hard stick they come get me so that I can get the blood, oh yeah and all my lights would be going on because Caution no matter what age location of occupational my daughter. they can’t answer a light while I get their blood. I had 2 idiot nurses that would come get me to get the patient in 13 bed 1 a cup of water…they pass the water room 2 times to tell me this, or they come to tell me the patient in 20 bed 1 needs towels as I’m working on another patient and they pass the towel room twice…..oh yeah it take me 30 mins to get the towel after they come to remind me the patient still needs a towel, but didn’t mention the patient needs a towel because they vomited all over themself. But the patient didn’t speak English, so the nurse didn’t give a damn. Like I said we had a couple that I would want to take care of me, but for the most part…nope no way. That was another reason I went back in the military

Worked with plenty of nurses that always have time for that extra cup of coffee and that extra bit of chat in the mornings. Instead of actually helping with the residents. Not all nurses are the same, but too many get a “that’s not my job” mindset. When, it is their job but they just don’t want to do the nitty gritty work. Funny shirts. Talk to me when you can recover two people puking and screaming in pain out of surgery, take two critically ill ICU people on vents and drips, and dialysis, or take care of four to five patients listed as intermediate care, but really sicker than that. Then do all your charting, round on patients, clean them up, pass meds multiple times a night, and manage to finish on time. I never took advantage of a tech. I can do their job, they can’t do mine. I have to delegate some things, but I’ve never been lazy. Maybe you need a new job to change your outlook. Or go to school for your RN and you’ll see how it is.
