Nursing is very stressful

  1. Just found out that a nursing supervisor, who has many years of experience was found in the bathroom of her facility naked and disoriented, geez, how can our nursing career do that to us?

    What makes you think it was nursing is the cause?

    Wow...I wonder how that could have happened. Maybe she was sick with something???? I hope she's alright.

    Nursing can and does do that to us. It happens more than you would think. The trick is when to know it's time to get out. There's so many different fields within our profession it's not that hard to find something different.

    It's sad and nursing is stressful but she would have had a lot of other issues going on in her life as well.

    R u sure it was nursing that did that to her? Sounds like she may have some psychological disorder...but if your positive it was just nursing then thats ashame.

    After rereading the post....I don't think it was nursing directly. Maybe she has either psychological issues (which I agree with Cherish) or on certain medications that would make her disoriented. But I guess anything is possible...

    You know what that's true, anything can happen, but lets try to keep our sanity with all the stress that's going on

    You know guys - a medical cause needs to be ruled out first. CVA is the first thing that comes to mind for me. And...let's not jump to conclusions. Hope her privacy was observed too...some of us can be real gossips.

    Let us all keep praying for one another, so that we are able to keep our sanity

    This is so sad, and I'm sorry for her. I hope she gets the help she needs.
