After a very stressful day at my RN job, I headed out to hay the horses.
Despite the rain and mud I was glad to be there. I had some steam to blow off!
At my RN job we have switched to full computer charting. No offense to computer programmers, but where is the time incorporated to actually taking care of a human being come in to play!!! It’s easy to sit at a computer and write programs for healthcare. How about you come into our setting and see what it’s like to put your hands on a person, deal with their anxiety, comfort the patient and their worried family. Does your checkbox include holding a patient’s hand until they stop shivering? Does your checkbox include a mom giving you a hug and asking you to take care of her daughter?
Does your robotic checkbox include the fact that caring for our patients is SO much more than a click of a mouse!!!!
Omg how did we get here?
Okay, I could possibly go absolutely down a rabbit hole on this!!
