After a 6 or 7 year hiatus I find myself back at the bedside at a hospice organization. As I start this post tonight I am working 11PM – 7AM. It occurs to me that I’ve spent so much of my life dealing with illness and death that I can’t help but be acutely…
I’ve been speaking of being in transition and would note that any time you are in a transition period there are risks. This is true not just in health care, but in life.
One transition that I deal with commonly is when a patient is discharged home from the hospital after an inpatient stay.
I think most people have a picture in their mind of what they want their life to be… Their family, friends, home, career, health, finances, etc. The list goes on. A few things in regards to what I said about my career in that first post:
I’ve been a registered nurse (RN) for over twenty years and I am in a bit of a transition phase in my career at the moment. I started out my career working in a hospital on a medical surgical floor with a focus in oncology…. At the same time that I’m finding my direction I am happy to share some education and some good resources for healthy living.
