omg i’m about to go nuts! this patient on the ward is driving me crazy!
she’s been acting up all damn day! All the nurses are so tired of her that now they are ignoring her. Basically, she went downstairs and walked out and went for coffee and she had no permission to do that. She had no leave so she wasnt supposed to go off the premises.
So all the nurses thought she’d gone missing. And they were frantic and looking everywhere for her. She came back and acted like nothing happened! So now she isnt allowed downstairs for a cigarette. There is no smoking allowed on the ward.
And all afternoon she’s been carrying on and saying she wants a cigarette and can someone let her out for a cigarette, and when she doesnt get her way she starts crying and saying she is going to pack her bags and go home! Then she came in here and was askine me and another girl Annabelle if she should pack her things and go. What could we say? We simply said if that was what she wanted to do then she should do it but only she knows what she wants to do. She keeps saying she hates it in here. She told us if she went home they wouldnt give her any meds and she’d have no cigarettes either. Of course they would give her meds, but I doubt they’ll let her go, she isnt fit to be discharged!
I hope this isnt going to keep up all night. I am not up for a night of acting out behaviour from her. She’s very demanding! And wants attention all of the time! Its crazy!
