I got in trouble doing care because I had everybody else ready in the house to go to a dance,
and we were on our way out the door,
and a young woman who was in patient at the time, but living in the house, her dad called and
asked me to come get her from the hospital and bring her home,
I can’t remember what I said, something like This really isn’t a good time, can you bring her home,
or something to that extent, he reported me and then another girl who was working with me,
took all our other clients, and I drove my own car to go up and get the woman, but the dad
was really belligerent with me.
Same woman, 2 months later, we were trying to find something fun to do, went to the mall in my car, since the other care givers needed the van, so we went to the mall and we passed by the nail place, and the woman got excited, I thought what the heck we’ll do it.
So she had the whole procedure all ten fingers, got home and the other care givers said her job won’t allow her to have nails, something I may have known, but just forgot. She had to have them all removed, and she said it hurt bad. Her father then said that I was no longer able to work with his daughter.
It caused a great deal of tension and animosity within the house.
You have a two hour window to get all the meds done, and one night I had the guys out at Boy Scouts meeting that went over, and it was a half an hour away, and driving home I knew, I was going to miss the window for meds. (should have brought all of them with me) I got written up. Then the med book wasn’t organized properly, so I missed one med for a client, and got written up. Then, I didn’t have them filled for another guy on time, and I knew that was it, 3 med errors and they fire you.
So I quit.
