We have a few hot headed residents right now. Some are long term care, some are just in for physical therapy so we can get them on their feet and back to their regularly scheduled lives. In any event, we now have a new acronym: DN. That's "Damn Nurse" to you. As in, "I want to see the Damn Nurse". I'm not sure where that falls in the hierarchy of LPN and RN, but it's definitely in there somewhere.
I think it's kind of like a choice between being the windshield or the bug. Sometimes you get to be the Nurse, sometimes you get to be the Damn Nurse. Sometimes neither one is a good choice.
