    Re: private duty nursing

    i started out in 1975 in a hospitol with med surg background. had a back injury on the job in 1984 but continued to work.then was 12 years with hemodialysis. when it was time to slow down due to my back, i did private duty for many years. i loved home cases and worked on one for 10 years. when she died, i grieved like a relative. in the hospitols here in n.j. they changed all the rules. we used to give patients their pain med after surgery. they decided we did not know enough about medicine to give it. the floor nurses had no time to look up any med, and were giving not even knowing what is was for.people who enjoyed the TLC a private duty nurse can bring, no longer stays in the hospitol for a few days. and with the pain pump and bad vibes from floor nurses, we are all but extinct.homes are fun but do not get too attached to the patient. rival nurses see this and blackball you off cases.
