12 Days of Christmas, Nursing Home Version

This probably won’t make sense to anyone who hasn’t worked in one, but that’s okay.

On the 12th Day of Christmas, the Nursing Home gave to me

12 blaring bed alarms

11 piles of paperwork

10 poopy Pull-ups

9 glucoses over 500

8 ladies stripping

7 ringing call bells

6 patients cursing

5 clogged g- tubesssssss

4 combative patients

3 pureed meals

2 refusing meds

and

1 patient needing to peeeeeee

 

And yes, I love my job, despite all that stuff. 🙂

    Oh man… Working with the elderly ‘does’ present a different set of challenges doesn’t it!

    Thanks, Portia.

    NFO- challenges? HA! So that’s what they’re calling the stuff that makes me want to rip my hair out these days? 😉
