Responsibility has become overwhelming
I have worked in critical care for 34 years. And it was better back then, let me say that first. Nurses did not have two ventilators plus two more patients like now.
I seriously question my vocation everyday.
The stress and responsibility placed onto our shoulders today is enormous. Patient, colleague, team leader, charge nurse, manager, doctor, pharmacy are but a few roles pulling at us everyday all day long. It is overwhelming.
