Guess what? I HATE ORTHO!!!! I was an "exchange student" from telemetry up to ortho yesterday, and immediately decided that it's pretty much my idea of hell. It suuuucks. The patients are all in (understandable) pain, but dont want to help with ANYTHING, including getting to the commode. They're ALLLLL about the bedpans. I, on the other hand, am NOT all about bedpan duty, given the option. I especially dislike the fact that the nurses and aides don't lift a damn hand when there are students on the floor. They'll be sitting there, hanging out, while the students panic, and pray they arent hurting the poor patients.
WILL NOT WORK THERE!!!
