I hate when the male nurses on my unit refuse to work with female patients b/c they are a "man" and "the patient won't be comfortable working with a man." If the patient isn't comfortable, I'm pretty sure that she will say so! They keep doing this, and I want to say so badly, "Are you sure it's not you that's uncomfortable? I mean, you did know that you would be working with women, too, when you went to nursing school?" And every night, the charge nurse ends up assigning all the male patients with the male nurses, and sometimes they end up with less patients b/c there aren't enough male patients for the male nurses to have the same amount of patients as everyone else. This is rediculous
. Okay....I'm done
. Whew...Carry on!
