How often do the people you care for act "normal"? Most of them can't act bat-shit 24/7 right?

On this particular unit, theres a lot of crazy...normal is a strange word in medicine/nursing "unremarkable" is the preferred term in some cases. One gentleman has been lapping my desk in a "restrained" (seat belt and lap tray) wheelchair non stop since ive started at 11, hell do this all night until i leave at 7 am and all he says is "NO" called expressive aphasia. Some of them do truley act crazy 24/7, we had one guy who passed recently that was one of them, busting in other peoples room, jumping off furniture etc.

Busting into other people's rooms isn't crazy. They probably stole something from him or were involved in black market trading of some sort.

Just damn. How high is your turn-over rate for new hires? I can't see a lot of people being able to handle that job for long, even if they think they know what they are in for.
