In my opinion, one of the most gut-wrenching, tear-inducing, horrendous things I come across as a health care provider is subpar care (neglect?) from other health care providers/caregivers. This usually weighs on me more intensely and for longer than any amount of verbal abuse thrown my way. After months of drought, it rained for nearly 2 days straight. When I came home from work this morning after one of those shifts where you’re not sure how to have a cheerful bedside manner and be simultaneously (albeit covertly) furious and devastated, the peonies outside my window were laying nearly flat on the ground from all the rain. No idea if cutting peonies is a bad/good thing, but these bébés are going on my kitchen table as a pick me up regardless. . . . #realtalk #nurselife #nursetalk #nursesofinstagram #caregiverstress #thoughtsofanurse #nursesinspirenurses #dyingwithdignity #endoflifecare #bindupthebrokenhearted #coffeescrubsandrubbergloves #compassionatesavage

#fattuesday Yesterday I did a sub-12 minute 2000m row. Goal is for under 10 minutes, 10 minutes-ish will work. 3lbs down this week. My lowest weight in a couple years. I ate like shit, if at all this week. 3 decent workouts. Depression is probably my biggest challenge right now. When youre depressed sometimes youre thoughts control you instead of vice versa. I'll just keep trying. #riseabove #lilsmokiesfortoes #iam32flavorsandthensome #compassionatesavage #nurselife

Have you thanked your CNA today?? June 13-20 this year is the week we choose to recognize one of the hardest working members of the healthcare team: CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANTS❤ For those of you that don't know, obtaining a certificate as a nursing assistant takes 6-15 weeks, depending on a nunber of factors, and one can work immediately after obtaining one's certificate. Often a classroom component is required as well as a clinical component, however in some cases, training is obtained while shadowing another CNA while on the job. Competency testing is required for certification. CNAs are regulated by the Board of Nursing(BON) in the state(s) they are certified in. They have a scope of practice outlined by the BON. A few things that are not in a CNAs scope are evaluation, assessment, and teaching. However when a CNA obtains an abnormal value during vitals (based on defined parameters) or identifies a change based on familiarity or experience, they are obligated to report those changes to the nurse who can in turn, evaluate, assess, etc. CNAs work closely with nurses and other members of the healthcare team. They primarily work in the acute care setting in hospitals and post-acutely in rehabilitation centers, residential settings and skilled nursing facilities, among others. Responsibilities include assisting patients with activities of daily living (toileting, hygiene, eating, etc). Recording vital signs, recording intake and output of nutrition and elimination. They assist with grooming, some would make you think they've had barber training in a previous life (we can explore the barber/medicine connection later). In my geographical area, 3 out of 4 nursing schools require the CNA vocational course be completed prior to applying for the nursing program. Nursing schools are acknowledging that the Registered Nurse/CNA relationship is important and dynamic. In order for nurses to effectively delegate we must first develop an understanding of their role and how it relates to our own. CNAs are some of the kindest, most compassionate, selfless people I know. Lets celebrate and appreciate them for all that they do. ❤ #hustlehard #compassionatesavage

In this profession that is surrounded by sickness, suffering and death, a sense of humor is what holds us together a lot of times. Due to the nature of our work, sometimes our sense of humor may come out dark and weird to some people. But trust me, we know when to turn off the funny and turn on the serious. . . . #compassionatesavage . Follow 💉 @TheDudeNurse 💉 . .

My favorite rolls with upper belts are these, where I know they're catching me, but they let things go and we keep going. So much fun. #repost @dank_jits_memes ・・・ @tomdeblass was the inspiration for this one..
