    i am a christian and i'll profess it in a minute.

    it's all in your attitude and how you make the patient feel while you're doing it!

    you sound very extreme and almost a little crazy. not to offend you in anyway, but that's how it came across to me...and i'm very familiar with the word of god. imagine how it may sound to someone who is searching.
    you know, you never had to profess it at all, and i still would have guessed that you're a christian. i, myself, am not. but i certainly agree with your statement about attitude in perineal care. as for being crazy, i stopped caring about that a long time ago, but thanks for the observation. it doesn't offend me at all.

    monist, i pity the nurses that have to work with you when/if you become one. you need to calm down and cut out these extreme views! why are you so bitter? you haven't even experienced true nursing yet. you obviously have a lot to learn about attitude, being a team player and accepting people for who they are. that will make your shift a whole lot more pleasant for you and everyone else. remember, your patients are not your patients, they are every nurses' patient on the floor that shift. you are a team. you need to get along with your co-workers, not label them and pick and choose who you will befriend. i've been a nurse for almost 10 years and it's great to get along with the team. it's so much easier when you can go up to anyone and be able to ask for assistance without having a chip on your shoulder. calm down and stop trying to bite! chill out! you'll be burned out before you even pass your boards if you keep going at the rate you're going!

    Quote from monist
    helping someone onto a bedpan who can't get out of bed to use the toilet is perhaps the greatest honor you will ever have in this world. the rest (money, credentials, power) is all just smoke and mirrors. cleaning someone up who has soiled themselves is the greatest act of kindness you will ever do. shows like er aren't real, so who cares how they portray anything?

    give me a break! you are just continuing the sterotype that nurses (mostly woman) should be joyfully running around performing "acts of kindness." nevermind our education & professionalism. but it is okay for doctors (used to be mainly men) to demand respect and pay for their education and professionalism. your attitude really bugs me! may you empty bedpans glore.
    given your attitude, i'll bet my attitude really does bug you. but here's the real difference: i'm not waiting for mds to grant me status or professionalism. i couldn't care less what they think about me. the last thing i need when i'm sick is a nurse that demands respect and pay for their professionalism and education. the last thing the world needs is another self-appointed emperor.

    why would you wait for anyone to grant you status or professionalism. the only thing that an md needs to grant you is a prescription for prozac! you are scary! from the way you sound, you will be a nightmare to work with! let us all know where you plan on working so that we can leave before you arrive or never come to that hospital. it sounds like you could be a potential danger to your patients, too. you need a psych eval. also, if you're not a christian, why do you continually try to use biblical quotes and use one as your signature? what are you then? remember, even satan can quote scripture.

    You have got to be who I think you are. There cannot be two of you. I notice you just joined this group today. Nevermind. Have a nice life.

    That is the coolest quote ever! And so very, very true; sometimes wiping someone's a** is just that!

    lets go easy here...

    I am sure this person will discover quite quickly that the patients couldn't care less about the philosophical gibberings...they want their drugs,docs,bathroom...this person will either figure out the patient and their opinions is the focus in nursing or they will be weeded out.

    We don't need to worry about it.

    When they stop defibrillating patients who are in asystole, maybe they'll portray nurses in a better light.

    The whole premise of Abby becoming a doctor because she's such a shining star as a nurse and is basically wasting her time being a nurse makes me sick to begin with... why not throw in some assanine comments as well?
    AMEN!! I gave up on "ER" when George Clooney pulled a Father Mulcahy -Tracheotomy-Using-A-Pen-And-A-Pocketknife in the driving rain on a peds pt. back in 1996. Slinging bedpans and pt.s screaming when you draw blood IS a little more accurate, at least.

    I just don't understand the attitude of doctor=good, nursing=settling for less. The pay isn't a factor anymore, the malpractice insurance and paperwork for a doctor is sheer misery, the years of your youth and family life drained away by an inhumane schedule, virtually no patient contact (you are too busy trying to get PAID by Medicare and the HMO's and justifying every thing you do)...gee, it must be just prestige, then. Nursing wins, hands down, if you ask me.

    So very true!! While I occasionally have 'one of those days' when I HATE being a nurse, I would hate being a doctor even more. I truly believe that today's doctors are behaving like jerks out of sheer frustration with what you have described. Not that this justifies their rudeness, but many are definitely very frustrated today.

    I also earn more than many GP's in this area...and I'm sure this is hard for them to take. Most GP's I know are goodhearted people who went into the field for the right reasons...not for power and prestige (that's reserved for specialists and super-specialists...LOL) :chuckle

    The docs I work with many times have nodded their heads wistfully when I say how much I appreciate punching out at the end of my shift and being able to totally relax when I leave the hospital.

    My tv is still broken and not replaced and I miss ER but not enough to spend a bunch of money on a new tv.

    True peace comes from silent television. :chuckle
