I understand what you are saying about working with the inmates families. I try to work lcosely with the nurse when we are in the facility at the same time, escort for rounds and hang out when a thug is in her office. I also try to act as an interface with officers and med staff so there are fewer misunderstandings. So I understand what you are talking about. Try to find one officer that you can work with, it will make things a little easier for you.

Thanks for the encouraging works from the CO side stand point. You have pinpointed an area that the majority of my co-workers (the officers) seem to overlook in my line of work of medical. I am a one man (or woman) show in our 124-bed county facility, which is fixing to expand to a 200-bed facility within a year. I wish I could find the help and or support from my co-workers to do my job it would make my life a lot easier. Little to they know I am working one on one with the Capt. and the Sheriff and with that responibility come frequent butt chewings that they don’t see. Then… dealing with the inmate’s Mommies and Daddies this is the worst! I am to drop EVERYTHING and rush their baby to the ER for hemerriods, because their infant that screwed up is dying… Please. But on the key note having more days of would be extremely helpful for the medical staff to NURSE our health and sanity.

Mst respect for the ladies on the nursing staff. You all get verbal abuse from a lot of ignorant people, both inmates and officers. Keep up the good work.
