Work's worst scenarios

Having just filled in my application form to do the Return to Nursing course, I have been googling just to update myself a little bit.

Well, I came across a site that explains a new job statement for the new pay roll scheme for nurses.
One of the factors is......

Quote:Working Conditions
Frequent upleasant; occasional/frequent highly unpleasant conditions.
Smell, noise, dust, body fluids, faeces, vomit, emptying bed pans and urinals, catheter bags.


:blink: Tell me again why I want to go back to this :laugh:

What is the worst part of your work/job?

I'm quite lucky really, I like most aspects of my job. I am in residential lettings. I suppose the worst part is if I have to pick someone up and take them for an accompanied viewing (no car, too far from station, etc.). I hate having strangers in my car. For one thing, they could be any Manson/West/Shipman and then you have to make small talk with them.

I'm self employed and I find the worst part of my job is keeping up to date with the paperwork, and keeping the work rolling in.

And having a pants boss :laugh:

Work's worst scenarios
Shopping in Tescos every weekday as I have to be there by 8am. It's full of old age pensioners I call the incontinence brigade because I'm sure they get up for a wee and think they may as well go and do their shopping even though they have all day to do it in.

Not forgetting the pleasure they take in clogging up the peak-time traffic as they slowly wend their way home...:mad2:

Oh the joys of West Sussex:laugh:

Hats off Andrea hun!!! I have always said nursing is a vocation and not a choice - you either can or can't. I have nothing but the utmost respect for nurses [and doctors] - the mere thought of poo and I run a million miles.

Proof: whilst a very young police officer, I decided to do voluntary work for Help the Aged. And one of our duties was to visit the very very eldery on Christmas day - so my sis [who I had roped into help] and I decided to go and see Sally a very elderly lady on Xmas morning. We arrived at about 11 am and planned to spend an hour with her, prepare her lunch, give her a pressie and chat with her.

But when we got there I knew something was amiss - she had pooed her pants. She was mortified and tried to disguise the fact by not moving. So my sis whispered to me that we couldn't leave her like this - so encouraged me to take her upstairs to sort her out. [I knew Sally better than my sis].

Well I finally managed to get her from her chair to the stairs and I managed 2 steps before I chucked up in a royal fashion - Sally was beyond mortification, but thank the lord for my sis - who not only sorted her out she sorted me out too!!!

We left Sally clean, fed and much much happier, I like to think. But that ended any thought of me being good around poo!

So Andrea - you are made of sterner stuff and the bestest of luck with the job applications - you've got it made!!

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.

lol, Andrea. My mother is a nurse and I'm always amazed at her ability to just clean up all the dog's vomit, poo, or whatever with no second thoughts about it, and I won't even be in the same room if I see it. lol.

I don't think I could handle that aspect of nursing. Blood I have no problem with, but any other bodily functions just make me ill.

I don't know, you introduce your sis-in-law to a brill Group and then all she does is insult you :cry:

I'm actually quite good with poo.

I used to work in a home for adults with learning difficulties which involved bathing and cleaning. On one weekend night shift a nasty tummy bug was doing the rounds and I was woken by Ian, 40 year old downs chap banging on my door. He was covered head to toe in poo - unabashed I put him in the shower washed him down, dressed him and changed his bedding, then lay with him holding his hand till he went back to sleep.

All in a nights work.
