I haven’t been blogging lately because, I have been working the night shift at various hospitals/health care facilities and man has it been veeery interesting. The place I worked last night just took the cake though. I have been a nurse for a bit now so, I have pretty much seen it all but LAWD, I felt like someone dropped me into the depths of hell last night.
This little facility I went into was “supposed” to be a retirement facility in need of a nurse, at least that’s what the agency told me when asked if I was available to work. I had figured it all out in my head.. 11-7 shift, retirement facility, easy money, leave and go get paid…I’ll take it!
This place must have been a retirement facility for crazy people and I’m just talking the employees right now, I haven’t even started on the patients yet. The employees were throwing MF”s and B-bombs at each other and I was told that it was wait for it….normal.
One of the patients had a fight with the DON there, another patient ran after a nurse and while she was running from the patient, the nursing assistants ran (in the opposite direction!) and boarded themselves up a room and put a chair under the knob so he couldn’t go after them! The police had to be called to be called naturally…*deep, long sigh*
You just can’t make this stuff up. And the kicks part is, I got a call to go back there….TONIGHT!
