As a nurse and a patient, who would you want taking care of you, let's be honest we all have Doctors, co-workers, AND Nurses who we would never want to touch us or our family.
Personally I would want the toughest, smartest, assertive, grumpy old army Nurse (sadly they are a dying breed) taking care of me and my loved ones. NOT the Nurse who gets all the patient satisfaction awards.
Sadly today it's all about patient satisfaction, not patient care or outcomes, most patients don't know what they are missing, but they love their nice NURSE.
Part of this is, I keep reading how mean some people can be, and how we need to be more accepting and supporting of each other.
What do you think?
