Celebrity Patients - Who would you want? - page 4
Living in the "Entertainment Capitol of the World", we get a lot of celebs in the hospitals. In addition, there are the one's who live here, commute here, work part-time here and occasionally need... Read More
Apr 7, '02Hmmm, the one & only "celeb" I would ever lurve to look after
would have to be Eddie Vedder - from Pearl Jam
Hmmmmm, maybe when Pearl Jam next tour Australia ......
Im just wondering how difficult it would be to
remain "professional" if your fave celeb was one of your
patients?? I would soooo want to tell my friends that I had
Eddie Vedder was my patient -
Apr 7, '02I would pick Lisa Loeb. I already met her once, and she seemed rather kewl. Or the rock goddess, Sheryl Crow! And the one I would not want, due the fact that I could not pay any attention to my work, is the very beautiful Jessica Alba!!!
Plus my wife would would not trust me around her!
As for men, I would pick Mr. Lucas, so my Star Wars group would go nuts! Or Mel Gidson, and tell him to make another Mad Max Movie!
old-master has spoken...
Apr 8, '02I would love to take care of Tom Cruise. He is smart, seems very nice and drop dead gorgeous and that SMILE!!!!
Apr 8, '02I think I would like to have a 4-bed ward room with Bruce Willis, Joshua Jackson, Nicholas Cage, and Freddie Prince Jr. No arguments here for doing bed baths. I would even be willing to do a 16 hour shift.
Apr 8, '02I love all the answers.....but I HAVE to have 2....
1. Tom Berrenger
2. Sir Anthony Hopkins......I would die just to hear him say..."Is that you NannaNurse??? Well hello NannaNurse'.....OMG, I have goose bumps the size of a Ford F250 Dual cab, 4x4 dulie....
Apr 9, '02Don't care if my patients are celebrities, rich, homeless, etc. -- treat them ALL with equal respect and dignity. Don't give preferential treatment to ANYONE -- don't care how "imporant" the patient is.
Regarding celebrities -- just no prima donnas please!!!!! I'm way to busy. :roll :roll
Apr 9, '02A patient is a patient. To treat a famous one any better than another is a kind of favoratism that should be reserved for your friends and family. Treat each patient like they are famous. You truely want each and EVERY patient to remember you, whether they be famous or not is beside the point. Remember, famous people get treated very well everywhere that they go, not like the average person. We are medical professionals that must show competence. No one person is greater than another. I'm not sure what a nurse expects when she or he treats a famous person better than all the others but I'm sure many will agree that it is self-serving.
Apr 9, '02I would love to help deliver Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's baby. My mother is a flight attendant and said Jennifer Aniston was the nicest celeb that she has ever met. And althought I would not give them any more than my customary high quality of care, I would love to talk to them both. I bet they are very warm people.
Apr 9, '02Susanmary and rnoflabor2000....I think you are getting the wrong idea here....of course, we nurses all treat our patients with the greatest of care, but this is just pure old fun. You DO get to 'FAN-tisize' once-in-awhile don't you? Gosh, I sure hope so.
I would not treat my favorite celebrities any better than, or worse for that matter, than any of my patients.
There IS a sense of 'awe' that comes with seeing in person those you admire on TV and screen.
See, that's all there is to our 'wacky dreams' here...only fun. Shoot, we all work so hard, we need to think like this occasionally, don't we????? I sure hope so
Apr 10, '02I think it might be nice to have Whoopie
Goldberg or Robin Williams for patients. They strike me as funny all the time and I wonder what their true personas would be..To look at I would have to say Kurt Russell, but I have always had a crush on him...Am I boring or what???
