Good or Evil? - page 4

I know, without getting too deep, that the only purpose a human being serves is to build the Kingdom of God in the physical world. Nursing provides a fantastic opportunity to do just that and still... Read More

    Why would any nurse bother?
    The question is ridiculous because the premise is dumb.
    If you had an annoying patient you didn't like wouldn't any sensible nurse make sure this patient got ALL the available comfort drugs?.
    See a NORMAL nurse wants to have a NICE comfortable shift...cause they are NORMAL...they don't want a homeless guy howling in pain throughout their shift demanding constant attention....
    LOGIC would demand that the nurse would be giving the homeless guy his drugs FIRST.


    I don't believe in God..at all... good and evil is all about people..... not some all knowing all powerful evil or good pulling the strings of human meat puppets.


    It 's called free will...I believe even the bible mentions it


    People will almost always do what is to their benefit...the bizarre premise that some possessed by evil meat puppet is staggering aound the ER deliberately making her life a living hell by refusing to give the homeless guy his pain meds so she can get caught by the doctor , her coworkers and management for not only missing meds but missing meds out of maliciousness...so she can get reported to her college and lose her license and her job.......

    Yeah...is there any nurse alive that has the ENERGY to do this?, nevermind the evil demon possession.
    You don't believe in God? And we are not then meat puppets? Interesting dichotomy. I think you don't believe in God because you don't see the forest for the trees. Be that as it may, I agree with your MO regarding pain meds and homeless screamers. I wish I could give more info, but if I did, and that nurse were in this forum, he/she would immediately know who I was and that I was talking about them. So, I guess this conversation is over. But the title is Good and Evil, so we could go around on that for a while.

    Don't you think you've ever seen or read about or saw on the news some example of "evil?"

    I find it interesting that no one has a response to the question: is it evil to withold pain medication from a patient you don't "like." Perhaps good and evil is too deep to talk about, or perhaps it just has no place in modern nursing. Nevertheless, I'm wondering if anyone out there has noticed that the spiritual warfare between good and evil becomes blatantly apparent on the floor and in the units. It seems there's always an opportunity to be an angel or a demon.

    And when will you answer our questions?

    And, no, there is warfare on the floor, but it is not spiritual. It is between right and wrong, which is different from good and evil and hardly spiritual. It is ethical in nature.

    monist- why won't you answer the same questions that were asked of you- did you report this? very simple question asked by 2 (now 3) different people but you are avoiding a response. did you report this?

    Merriam Webster defines a monist as one who 'holds a viewpoint or theory that reduces all phenomena to one principle'. Is that compatable with being a nurse? Just wondering....
    Actually, that's a broad definition of the word, but it's close. Technically, I'm an acosmic monist. I believe that only God exists and everything else is an illusion created by God, and so doesn't exist or isn't real the way God is real. As for being compatible with nursing, I would say that it is. I see my patients as myself. I see my coworkers as myself. Naturally, I'm somewhat fanatical about the Gospels. I couldn't care less about the other books of the Bible, but Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and even Thomas really get to me.

    Thanks for letting me ramble.

    No. But I learned a lot. I'll never do the same thing when I'm an RN.

    You know what, Jemb, Monist says she's not a nurse YET. However, she trys to portray herself as a nurse in her postings, right? I think she IS a nurse that got herself in hot water by mentioning something she should have never mentioned. A REAL and DEDICATED nurse would have reported it IMMEDIATELY! Because not only is it wrong, it's cruel and twisted...just like the Monist portrays herself as being...cruel and twisted. I honestly think it was her, too. I'm still waiting for her to respond to "What do you do about it?"

    Hopefully, she won't become an RN. She is obviously NOT a patient advocate.

    Quote from 4greatkids
    ........... God made us all different, yet we share a common thread...nursing. Therefore, treat everyone the same...with respect..and you can't go wrong. To say there is "blatant spiritual warfare on the floor and in the units" is to say that someone is possessed or who satan is using to tear us down (as Christians) spiritually. ............if I weren't already a Christian who was secure in my beliefs, YOU would DEFINITELY turn me completely OFF the Word of God. God wants us to be a living example ("...they will know us by our fruits") I hope you don't go around your unit "preaching" your twisted views of Christianity. Remember, God WILL hold you accountable for that, too. Sometimes, it's just better to shut our mouths and be a living example...like I try to do!
    4greatkids, I edited the quote above here for space saving purposes... but in summation, what I wished to say is Well said.
