    i agree, that would make a great show. i get tired of the medical programs that portray nurses and doctors as sex hungry animals. i have worked in hospitals for years and heve never found anyone int the linen closet making out.
    heh! it happens at my hospital all the time, actually.

    --pacu nurse and maintenance guy found making out in surgical suite, after hours.

    --icu nurse (male) and resp. therapist (female) found making out in the resp. therapy office.

    --step-down unit nurse (male) and another step-down unit nurse (female) found "in the middle of something" in one of the third floor "pods" (mini supply rooms)

    *i* wasn't the one who made these discoveries (unfortunately)

    *note.. the above is a humorous post!!!*

    I found it amusing how that surgeon grabbed Sandra Oh's charactor and sort of shook her after her pt passed away. I'm thinking that doesn't happen too much in real practice. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    It looked like she was freaking out - we were watching through a window and couldn't hear the conversation. He was probably trying to calm her down.

    I've had to take a co-worker's arm and gently lead them away from a situation where they were furious with another co-worker.

    I have read through almost all of the postings regarding Gray's Anatomy and I have to say I'm amazed at ya'll flying off the handle like this! This show is about surgical interns not nurses! And the remark in the first episode? For ya'll who work in a place that requires scrubs for anyone giving direct patient care, how many of you have become upset if you're mistaken for an LPN, CNA or respiratory therapist? How about when a patient assumes a male nurse or respiratory therapist is a doctor? It's the pecking order and it is what it is. As for respect, that doesn't automatically come with whatever initials follow your name, respect is earned with your practice. Like the retired scrub nurse in the episode that aired on 4/17, she earned her respect and admiration. Personally I love this show but then after almost 30 years in nursing I no longer have a chip on my shoulder. Why don't ya'll give this show a chance before you flame ABC?

    While I agree the first show had problems regarding the negative connotations for the nursing profession, I have been watching the show and to me, it has gotten better. Besides, I watch it for Patrick Dempsey....yum!

    I agree. The second time I watched the show was last Sunday night, and they actually had a veteran nurse as a patient with pancreatic cancer, and she was well recognized, well known, and very well respected by the medical staff. One of the veteran docs who no longer practices, actually said she was the best nurse she had ever worked with. The down side though, was they admitted her to die there. How very sad.

    Okay...before I say what I've been wanting to say about the show....remember the scripture "he/she who has never sinned...throw the first stone"

    Okay...now that I have put on my shield of protection with the Holy Scriptures ................... i like the show, too, Sea Island Yank! :behindpc:

    When I first saw this thread weeks ago, I had no idea it was about a t.v. show because I had never heard of the show before. Then, three shows ago, I happened to be flicking the channel, and stumbled across the show getting ready to air, so I watched it. At the end of the show, I was practically in tears (the show was a sad show that day). I was hooked! Since that time, I've seen two other shows, one being the last show where the nurse died. I cried again......

    I'm not thinking about nurses when I watch the show. It's about interns.........the docs in diapers we (nurses) burp to reality.

    The show also gets to me because I've always wanted to become a surgeon from the age of eight. Then, I let men enter my life............well........you know.......the rest is junk.

    Soooooooo.....carry on luveys.

    My impression is that she wanted to die there. It was her wish. And they took up a bed to accomodate her.

    You may be right Steph, but I didn't get it that way due to what the interns were saying. One told the others a couple times that the staff had no intention of helping her. They just brought her here to die. Whichever way it was meant, the best part was how the docs and the nursing staff all respected her.

    Ok I just dont get the way they all have to be running around in their panties all the time and the pouty lip thing was kinda making me nausous by the end of the show. I dont see myself watching it again

    Interns are so unfinished humans. They went to school for too many years and have no life. We as nurses are expected to nurture them to become acceptable doctors. This training if I remember correctly includes flushing the dirty utility room hopper multiple times during the night next to their sleeping room after they insulted the nursing staff. And making sure they are awake when the doc they are working with makes rounds. If they appologize in the AM when you give them coffee and report prior to the rounds then their butt is saved. If they still have an attitude, well...grovel sweet idiot.
