When I first started my nursing career I worked with a number of doctors and nurses in a pain clinic. We did nerve block treatments locally and under general anesthesia to relieve peoples chronic pain. It really worked for some of the patients, while for others it only worked until the numbing medications that we used wore off.
Anyway … we had a very strange assortment of doctors. Most were anesthesiologists and had worked in major hospitals in the past but for some reason they now worked in this pain clinic for the most part on a full time basis. I always wondered why there were there since at the time, and I guess currently, we had a major shortage of anesthesiologists in the hospitals.
I often wondered if they’d done something wrong in the hospitals where they had worked before and got fired? Well, I didn’t wonder if that were true for all of them, but some … yeah .. they didn’t really even belong in the pain clinic.
I got thinking about these doctors because I saw this online ad for Dr. Larry Shapiro. It’s for hair transplants in Florida. One of the doctors I worked with was a Dr. Shapiro but as far as I know he never did hair transplants! However, the founder and owner of the clinic did do hair transplants for some time. Can you see how I ended up thinking about the doctors I used to work with at the clinic?
I wonder what happened to them?
I worked there for almost 10 years and I loved my job but it was a horrible place to work. The manager was a true bitch. She took turns picking on different nurses each day of the week. I’m sure it made her day if she could make us cry. Yeah that’s how bad she was. So I don’t have fond memories of the place, even though I really really liked my job.
Did you ever work in a place where one person caused you and perhaps several of your co-workers grief every day?
