Quote from PoochiewoochieWhat he SAID was, "a good majority of our pts lie". He did not say everyone. He SAID that it can jade our opinions. You changed his words.Yeah, everyone that goes to the ER lies.
Beyond that, since you are not a nurse nor a nursing student and your only reason for being in the ER is either as a patient or a visitor, you are not likely to have the same opinion as those who ARE nurses and WORK in the ER. Your frequent trips to the hospital for surgeries, etc, do not give you the perspective of a nurse.
The OP (and you) are posting on a message board specifically for nurses, and you seem surprised to find that a difficult to read rant against nurses isn't resulting in automatic unconditional support of your complaints?
I, too, suggest that any and all complaints about the care you received as a patient be immediately directed to the appropriate person AT the hospital or facility in which the care was received. Not the AllNurses.com message boards.Last edit by RNsRWe on Oct 26, '12 : Reason: html malfunction
