Malaysia: "Please, help my son! He is dying!" - page 2

"Please, help my son! He is dying!" - a middle aged man screamed as he entered the emergency room. I looked up and saw one little boy age of nine in his arm with so much blood on his body. The... Read More

    i know. that RN needs to change career
    I know, why would she decide to become a nurse if she can't handle that? I could see if she wanted to work in an environment with little patient care where blood was unlikely, or a desk job, but in an emergency room? Shouldn't being able to be around blood be a job requirement in the ER?

    It's not only a sad story, but it is also scarey to think that someday you may need medica attention and a health care worker will just abandon you like that.

    Bravo for doing the Advanced Trauma care certification.

    You'll never know, perhaps all the training in the world might still not have saved that boy, but then, every bit of learning that we do just might give us that edge that saves a life.

    American nurses really cannot understand the differences between what is available in other countries unless they spend time overseas. If Maylasia is like Thailand, where I've lived, few that run ambulances really have any adequate training and depending on where you live, there simply may be no trauma center.

    Here in America the nurse that wouldn't help would likely face "abandonment" charges and at a minimum would likely have her license revoked by the Board of Nursing. In Thailand, that would not be the case, and it may not be in Maylasia.

    Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work.

    I don't care if she worked in the hospital gift shop. She is no nurse, she is a disgrace. You, however, are the real deal. You make me proud.

    This is very inspirational story as a new grad nurse. I vow to learn as much as I can and be mentally prepared to handle any situation. My heart breaks hearing that the nurse couldn't "handle" blood. Are you serious, was she fired after this incident??!
    Kudos to you for finding another hospital and expanding your education.

    You are an amazing inspiration to those of us who love nursing and believe that we are doing the job others cannot or will not do, because it needs to be done. Kudos and God bless your continuing education and excellence.

    I admire your concerns regarding the event that took place with that patient but the worst thing that I read from your post was that "I quit from the hospital and looking for new job at well organized center" , this shows that you already gave up on the poor patients who comes to that center asking for help. If nothing changes with the way the center and it staff handles its cases, maybe it would have started from you and made a big difference and have set a good example to all nurses.

    Yeap.I quit-1 month earlier from stated contract .I voiced to get more staff on duty-ignored.Well,who am I? 6month RN to be heard by the over 10 years unchanged management? plus.I want to work at my own state.The other reason-I will keep it for my own.Yes,I do feel sorry and sympathy for those who really need urgent treatment that come to that center but I belive,if I'm not moving out from that center,I'm not doing what I'm doing now.Not being selfish.Not for being a heroine...but I have my own reason and vision .Thank you..

    Your description of this event was so vivid I could see it in my mind while reading. The image of a desperate father helping to bag his own son literally took my breath away. You painted an equally vivid picture of your own desperation caused by the insurmountable obstacles you faced in trying to care for that child. I am impressed with the fact that this experience has motivated you to pursue more education and training in trauma. Not everyone can handle that type of work....as proved by the nurse who ran out of the room.

    I would just like to applaud your efforts and wish you the best of luck.
