I think everyone seems more rude and unfriendly.
had a baby 2 yrs ago.. all my nurses i had at the hospital were good... most GREAT. 1 of them, when i got there... If she ended up being my nurse.. i would of rather had my baby in the parking lot!!! glad she was off in 1 hr, when i got there.
I heard the turn over rate is really high and a lot of untrained nurses are getting paid the same amount as the senior nurses who have been there longer and know the job like the back of their hand. I'm not a racist but I can see the frustrations they must face when the govt employs people who cannot speak read or write English into the field of medicine yet most of the senior staff had to go through years of probationary periods before they were fully qualified. That's why there have been so many stuff ups. Overworked underpaid angry staff who just don't want to be there and take it out on the patients.
I have spent a lot of time in the hospital lately, and most of the nurses I have met have been nice, friendly and caring. I especially liked the ones in ICU who tended me while I spent three months in a coma and on total life support. The doctors may have the skills, but the nurses provide the care that really heal people
I can only speak as I find and as a carer I am dealing with nurses all of the time,99% of whom are fantastic at what they do,caring with empathy.
I hear what you are saying my friend.
I think that a nurse should get paid (for example) 30% of what the doctor gets paid. The doctor would have a better paid smiling nurse. The nurse would work harder so that he/she could indirectly benefit.
I find this talk quite funny and somehow related. Check it out.
I agree 100%.
For about the past ten years, I have noticed that every time I have gone to the doctor's office or hospital, my nurses are incredibly rude and they act like they hate their jobs. the last time I went to the gyno, my nurse practically called me a moron because I couldn't p e e on command. I'm sorry my bladder and urethra won't cooperate with YOUR HIGHNESS. Geeze.
Hating your job is common in the world, but if you're gonna be a nurse or any other caretaker profession, you need to make sure you always make an effort to be cordial and nurturing, NOT a complete grumpy and passive-aggressive b*tch.
