Tenormin 100mg Pills $182.00

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 This is a great shot from an old Wyeth ad. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Looks like an early rendition of a triage nurse. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 She is talking to the woman who rode off with Toto in the Wizard of Oz. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 She could use a whopping dose of Advil because you just know she is going to have a migraine at the end of the day. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I love doing triage. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some people hate it. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some of my most exhausting shifts have been in that triage chair; I would sometimes have 45-50 people cross my desk in 8 hours. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some were easy, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 clinical issues. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 The babies always took the most time as they needed weights, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 rectal temps and, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 for some crazy administrative reason, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 measurements of their head circumference. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 And that’s after you have taken all seven layers off them. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Then their socks. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Under their booties. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 In the summer. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 With a fever. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I could write an entire dissertation on the phobia of fever. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 But I would deal with 100 babies with fever before I would consider doing what I consider the most thankless job in nursing: being the manager of a nursing unit.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Nurse manager. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Clinical Coordinator. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Head Nurse. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Whatever the title, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 it’s a rough job. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They must balance the needs of the nurses and the unit with the orders that come down from Administration. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They take the brunt of patient complaints and angry doctors. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They are expected to encourage, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 counsel, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 dicipline, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 teach, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 assess and evaluate their nurses who are taking care of the patients for whom they have the ultimate responsibility. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They are expected at meetings, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 they are expected to hold meetings. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They pass along the edicts from Administration and deal with the objections of staff, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 even if they agree that the change/rule/requirement is needless. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They need to be open to staff and allow them to ventilate. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 They try to balance the personal needs of their staff to the staffing needs of the department, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 often having to say “no” and then absorb the fallout.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 And they are often paid less than the nurses they manage.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I’ve had many managers over the years. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some new, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 some experienced. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some calm, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 some hotheads. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Some were born to be leaders and some just went through the motions. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I actually took a job because I met a manager (and a Critical Care Educator) more enthusiastic about nursing than anyone I had ever met. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I had a manager who was as close to super-woman as you could get with three departments at two facilities under her control and they ran like clockwork. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 There have been managers in small units that would bend over backwards to accomdate every request and managers at teaching hospitals who had so many nurses you were just one of the bunch and whose attitude was “sorry, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 no-can-do”. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I had managers who I could call if the night shift got nuts and managers I only saw every other month.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 To most managers I was trouble-free staff and to a few I was their worst nightmare. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 (Let’s just say God help the manager who has to deal with a nurse going through severe, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 depressive burnout.) Looking back at my relationships with various managers and now from the vantage point of maturity (I think), tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I realize what a staff nurse needs to do to help their manager be a good manager:

  • Do your work to the best of your ability. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 That’s a given. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 If you are assigned a special project to help with department flow, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 do it without being reminded. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Keep your certifications up-to-date and make sure all appropriate copies are in your file. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Keep your timecard correct. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Make yours one less thing she has to deal with.
  • Keep in contact with your manager. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Sometimes it’s not easy if you work the off-shifts, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 but check in now and then to say hi. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Ask how you’re doing. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 (This is not the same as your evaluation. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Your evaluation should not be the time you find out there is a problem, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 but often that is the only time you actually sit down with your manager). Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Have they noticed any areas you could improve? Don’t just assume that because nothing has been said that everything is okay. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Oh, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 and don’t try to do this on the run unless your manager has an open-door policy and is always available. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Make an appointment.
  • Managers deal with problems and complaints. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Constantly. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 From all quarters. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Don’t have every encounter with your manager be a complaint-a-thon. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 The one thing you don’t want your manager thinking when they see you is “oh no…..”.
  • Of course there are appropriate times for voicing a dissenting opinion or making a complaint or asking for help with a problem. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 When meeting with your manager, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00
    • Have a couple of possible solutions in mind before you go in. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 You will come across as a problem solver (which you are) and will not come across as, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 heaven forbid, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 whining.
    • If you are reporting a problems with a doctor or staff member
      • Try to handle the issue with the person involved before involving your manager. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 This is not always an easy thing to do, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 especially if you feel intimidated.
      • Document the problem as best you can. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 It’s hard for managers to get a handle on issues when they have no data.
  • Finally, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 let your manager know that they are appreciated from time-to-time. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Just a note to thank them for handling your time-card issue or for taking up Dr. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Smartmouth’s temper-tantrum with the appropriate department. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 You get the idea. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Yes, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 it’s their job, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 but everyone likes positive reminders that their everyday tasks are appreciated.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Boy, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 there is no way on God’s Green Earth that I would take on a Head Nurse position (I like the term “Head Nurse”. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I’m just old fashioned, tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I guess). Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 I learned early on I don’t have the temperment or the ability to handle that load. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 But this Indian appreciates a good Chief.

Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 So here’s a tip of my nurse’s cap to the women and men of nursing management who run interference so that my job is easier. Tenormin 100mg pills $182.00 Thanks.

    Kim, had I gone into nursing, I’d want someone just like you to guide me and work beside. If everyone was as dedicated and thorough as you, hospitals would run much more smoothly, with fewer problems and mistakes. And the employees would certainly be happier!

    I was relief charge nurse for a very short period of time and I hated it. We were shortstaffed and everyone kept getting sick and callin in. It was horrible. And everyone expected me to know what to do about it!

    Nope. No managing for me!

    I quite enjoy being a manager, but for a long time I was scared to admit to my colleagues that it was something I wanted to do. Like management is some kind of swear word. I do miss actual nursing at times, but find it pretty much an enjoyable challenge.
