Morbid question: when I watched my DNR patient die yesterday, her eyes ended up looking like glass (like doll eyes). It was the one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. I haven't found a good answer on why, despite searching. Anyone know why?
Got pulled to a different unit and my DNR patient died unexpectedly. It was the first patient I have ever had die, and the first time I actually watched someone die....it was really hard and really sad. Hats off to hospice nurses and all HCWs who deal with so much death 😔
I just got a call that I'm getting pulled to one of the covid med-surg units for my shift tonight. I HATE that place so much. I cried all my make up off. It's so stressful and horrible, with way too many patients. 💔
I go through lots of ups and downs as a newer nurse. I hate floor nursing. I keep trying to convince myself I like it, but I don't. I can't leave until Dec 31st or I have to pay then $4k for a contract I signed. I'm not coping well. I'm exhausted. Patient loads right now unsafe.
I've only been a nurse for 6 months, & got to have my very own student nurse last shift😂
It was really weird & kind of surreal. But it was also then that I realized how far I've come! The best part is when a patient can't believe I'm a baby nurse bc of how good I am 🙌

Random guy: that's the biggest mini I've ever seen!
Me: yeah, it's a countryman
RG: ooooo I love countryman....broke back mountain baby!
