The nursing and PT schedule for this week is already crazy

Here’s the thing, The Curmudgeon needs his health monitored for a while after five hospital stays in four months.

He also needs physical therapy, and if they can do it at home, all the better.

The problem is, the nurses feel like invaders in my home. I haven’t met the PT guy yet, that comes later today.

The nurses call the day before, or sometimes on the day of, to let us know when they will arrive–that’s quickly changed since I raised hell about the idea of them deciding when it was convenient for them to arrive. Screw that, they will arrive when it is convenient for us. We aren’t paid to be here for them, they are paid to be here for us.

They all remind me of my ‘entitled’ and estranged sister who is also a nurse. Is the art of being a complete asshole part of the curriculum in nurses training? Or are we just lucky?

the right to be stupid
