I may take some flack for this. I know. But bear with me.... This is the face of a tired nurse. 🏥 💉 I work hard to take care of you, your family, your friends, those that are strangers, those well known. 💉 I take care of you to the best of my abilities. 💉 I take care of your families. 💉 Decisions made by the care team ARE thought out and we DO attempt to do what is in the best interest of the patient that is within our scope and legal abilities.
But I am tired. 👉🏻 I am tired of being accused of anything than what I've described.
👉🏻 I'm tired of being yelled at, and threatened. 👉🏻 I'm tired of being told I am not good at what I do because you are upset at something that we have no control over.
Please understand that I am aware that I CHOOSE this profession.
And I will continue to CHOOSE to do my best to care for you and anyone else that may come in.
And despite those that may think I'm the most horrible nurse in the history of nursing, I can assure you that I still am taking the best care for and of you and your families.
I CHOOSE to do this.
I CHOOSE to care.
