Today is my husband's birthday and we both have the night off from work!
Woke up this evening at 5:00pm(as we worked last night) and had a cup of coffee to wake up. Then I got on the exercycle and got 18 minutes in, finishing up with some cardiostrength exericses.
My husband and I are spending the night relaxing at home together due to our hard night at work last night. I was overly busy last night from the time I clocked in to the time I clocked out this morning. And my poor husband got beat up by a patient. He managed to turn his side to the patient to keep him from punching his chest. That would have turned out alot worse as my husband just had a cardiac cath along with a stent placement recently.
I think that it is a real shame that we get that kind of abuse from some patients at work.
Most of our patients are wonderful and the best-but it is those few that are like that-they want to do violent acts on the staff.
I will close for now.
