This article is in this month's Chatelaine magazine, which is a Canadian women's magazine. It talks about an atrocity that happened a few years ago in a Winnipeg, Manitoba hospital and how the situation was handled by the doctors and hospital administration. The nurses involved got the short end of the stick, so to speak.
I haven't worked in a hospital setting for over 10 years. I currently work in a pediatrician's office and he's really wonderful. In my experience in the hospital, I have seen doctors cover up for other doctors mistakes as well as nurses catch flack for not picking up on doctor's errors. But I have never seen it as bad as this article...where the nursing staff was not only excluded but criticized and even ridiculed.
I'm curious about this. How wide spread is the problem? Was this an isolated incident or is this something that in varying degrees happens regularly in all hospitals?
Here's the link to the article. What's your take on it?
