Cool out Ginger! You criticized me on a topic of nurse addiction and even claimed I was an enabler for drug use. I was trying to help a fellow nurse straighten out serious problems. You said that I gave bad advice, which the only thing I missed is hire a good lawyer, which I see as common sense. You also looked up every post I made and said to fellow nurses that I hate nursing. No, I hate self proclaimed perfect nurses, like you.
Please refer to the topic of backstabbing, Ginger. Here is the link.
Ginger, is that all you do, criticize those that are human, not a nursing machine being flawless? What good advice did you give the individual with a serious problem with drug problems, beyond saying I gave bad advice and forgot to mention to get a good lawyer.
Ginger, I really hate to say this, but you lack compassion for fellow nurses and probable patients, claiming they need narcotic pain meds. I bet you let them suffer, not to create addicts.
This is not the first or last time I will lock horns with you, Ginger. Be supportive of your fellow nurse and less critical. Listen to your patients and medicate with whatever it takes to give them comfort, no matter how addicting an ordered drug is. That is what a good nurse does.
I already expressed concern about how you treat your patients, since you obviously are not understanding of your fellow nurse's problems or willing to work with them. All you do is criticize, once again. The truly good nurses know the difference between drug seekers and drug need. As you write, I bet you would deny a patient Vicoden.
You are way too defensive. Maybe you are not so different that the individual that got caught stealing drugs. You act so militant that I believe you defend too much. Nurses that do not steal drugs don't have much of an opinion, until confronted at work and feel threatened.
Ginger, I seriously doubt you are anyone close to what you say. No nurse is this harsh or should get out of the profession. People that sound like you, I say need a break from the profession and get human again. You are far from anyone capable of true compassion for your patients or co-workers.
Yes, I have read your PC correct posts too. I have one thing to say about it, you must be a liar or way beyond human, with emotion to forgive those who are not perfect, like you patients, first, and your co-workers, who you probably make miserable, secondly. Get away from it all and find out who you really are. You are not your job. It is something you do for money.
This is a site for nurses to speak candidly. You are the only one I see that criticizes others, without reason. Did you check out the Backstabber topic? I would bet my life, you are definitely one of them, but an intelligent nurse.
Ginger, get your priorities straight.
