4 No, in the first 15 years I was a take down specialist on the toughest psyche floors there were, because the doped up patient thought it prudent to inflict harm on others,. You see, with over 40 years of Martial Arts and 18 months in the jungles of southeast Asia as a member of an elite force made me a very good candidate to render this patient to a helpless state and to inject them. The turning point was that one had to have some bogus special training to encounter the vicious patient. They would pile in within the reach and the vicious patient would inflict major damage and cost the state insurance millions. The patient advocate would call me in and critique my performance on the camera, usually some obese non educated in the martial arts and give me pointers prior to firing me. Think about this. If the cna who works nights on a high acuity floor never sustains hurt, the stats are great, but one injury from the patient to the nurse could cost thousands in reparation. I unsuccessfully petitioned the state to let me institute my special program for the violent patient because 1 RN trained and two Black Belts trained couls harmlessly take down even the most violet offender, I created this program and instituted it myself in 4 major state hospitals, of course, trained the CNA men that were to accompany me, hand signals only, no injuries to the patient of staff ever, except, maybe the patient's ego for a brief period, then I would speak the real deal of the program with them.
5. Don't count on me.
6. I got into nursing because I had a job lined up in the north sea on a drilling rig with the Parker Brothers oil company on their medical team because I worked in the oil fields in north taxes for some years, from worms corner to derrick man/ relief driller, then I failed a class in my last nursing semester and the job was gone as the class came up once a year and I had to wait but pulled a B. and graduated. The only male nurse that yr.
7. The RN has the license to lose, not the cna or some clown that chooses to lean on your license. answer me this. How can an ADON, Nurse Supervisor be in a non management position when it is their license running the house usually, eh?
RN. shows you got what it takes, at least what it took in my days. My wife is a BSN and is on her first job, thinks she knows it all. I was in a little room about 10 years ago and this RN started to run her mouth saying that she was the greatest because she had been an RN for 5 years. I laughed and asked MRS. Smith, "How long/" 40 years, Then Mrs. Jones, "How long 27 years. I told her I had my license 25 years worked in two different countries and spoke 3 languages fluently. She was asked by me, "Aren't you just a baby with a 5 year old license1111?"
thank you for the priviledge
