Okay, I don't want to rant and rave about the poor quality of nursing care that I received during my 4-day hospital stay, but there was this one nurse who I just really didn't like. She was young, very rude and kind of weird acting. Anyway, she really rubbed me and my husband the wrong way and we both didn't think she was professional at all. We'd already had a few issues with her, but now after four weeks I really have one.
The day before my release she came in and removed the drain from my back. When she initially pulled on it, I yelped and she replied "oh, that doesn't hurt", then continued to pull the darn thing out. Believe me, it hurt. :''( :''( Anyway, that area has continued to bother me so I've kept a bandaid over the site so it could heal. When I visited my doctor on Monday (4 weeks post op) he asked what the bandaid was for and I mentioned that it was bothering me so he took a look. Well, miss Nurse from h-ll didn't bother to remove the staples when she was pulling the darn thing out. Needless to say, the doc was pretty mad and was going to report her.
I guess the moral or this story is to be sure to ask the nurse to check for staples, etc. before doing any yanking!!
