This picture explains it all!
I worked my first day at my new job. I worked med pass. I didn’t know where anything was, I don’t know the patients real well. I don’t know the schedules real well either.
It was a disaster to say the least.
A patient got mad at me. The wife yelled at me. None of it was my fault, but it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with it. The patient has recently gotten a terminal diagnosis and they are having a hard time dealing with it.
Overall, I am thankful for my health and my family’s health. I won’t let a bad day get me down, but I am glad it’s over and I am still excited about being there full time!
I start work tomorrow, so I went and got some scrubs today! I got three pair and a scrub jacket.
The set on the left is Koi by Kathy Peterson in the color steel. The set on the right is Grey’s Anatomy by Barco in the color cabernet heather. The set that I don’t have a picture of is the same as the Koi except in the color navy. The scrub jacket I got is Cherokee in the color pewter. They all fit really well, so much better than the ones they made us wear in nursing school. I gag every time I see a set of hunter green Landaus (not being dramatic at all).
I have everything set out. I’m not going to lie, I had to hunt for my stethoscope and BP cuff. I can’t believe it has been so long since I have used it. I graduated in December but I think I finished Clinicals mid November.
Yay! I’m so excited! Hopefully I will have time to blog tomorrow after work 🙂
