So today I was yelled at for the first time by a doctor today. I wont get into the whole situation simply because I just got off shift and I don't feel like reliving the day. But, I just want to say....regardless of the situation, why is it accepted/expected for physicans to "yell", correct (in a very arrogant manor), look down on, or be just plan RUDE and unprofessional to nurses???
I guess I just don't quite understand the dynamics of the hospital setting yet. I am starting to see the place where I am expected to stand and I am not comfortable with it. I know nursing has come a long way, but I feel like a servant sometimes, carrying out the "DOCTOR'S ORDERS." I find the physican/nurse relationship to be a very strange one...he/she is not not "boss", the nurse manager is...he/she does not sign my check...yet, whatever he/she wants done...I must do, and if it is not done when/how/where he/she wants I can expect to be YELLED AT??? Like a child/servant being repremanded???
I don't know. Maybe I'm off base. I just think that there are more profession/tasteful ways to handle situations other then yelling like a jerk :angryfire
I guess I should get use to it???
