Default PACU peeves

My pet peeve....surgeons performing surgeries on patients and there are no rooms to put them in. It got so bad a couple of weeks ago, that the whole recovery unit was full to capacity with patients that had been there for days because they had no rooms.

Another peeve...nurses not keeping up with patient medications and then I have to get them caught up. Meaning the patient is getting their medications late. They are scheduled for a reason! Especially antibiotics.

Lastly, and probably the most bothersome....nurses leaving an IV bag hanging with 100cc or less left. Just change the darn bag out!

WHEW! I just now read every word of all 5 pages... What a list of peeves, pet and otherwise! I must admit to standing on my own personal soap box on occasion and preaching about many of the same issues. Furthermore, I am grateful for everyone's participation in this thread because in the posts I have found implications of immense value: recognition of a solid work-ethic, upset secondary to management decisions, grief secondary to poor parental/patient choices, healthy job-related humor, and insight into personal behaviors and stressors! Thanks so much for giving me such rich content to consider.

I have quoted you, PixelRN, because I walk too slowly. I have been guilty of this ever since I hung up my EMS flight suit! Upon becoming a middle-management type I vowed to never again move more swiftly than a dignified amble. My pride in this was supported by numerous admiring comments I received from staff who stated they found comfort in my measured calmness. What they were not saying, however, was made utterly clear the day I moved very swifty indeed to care for a patient suddenly in extremis. When all the dust had settled, the charge RN very loudly remarked in front of God and everybody, "Joy! I did not know you could move so fast!"

I had enough grace to smile.



Joy
