Ask for help … really. Look at it as a patient safety issue if nothing else. I think you should feel worse because you are so busy your patients aren’t getting the care you could be giving them if you just asked for help once in a while. I feel your pain, I HATE asking a nurse to try for an IV that I have missed, or place a tube I tried to place and failed at … but for the good of the patients, sometimes you just have to ask for help. If that makes you feel bad, that is something you can work on, but you, your patients, and everyone around you will be happier if you ask for a little help and don’t get so stressed as opposed to you trying to do it all yourself and becoming miserable.
