    1. nurses would respect and help one and other.
    2. patient ratio per nurse would be low.
    3. better working conditions.

    Equipment in each room to do the job, and to take care of emergencies.

    My pet peeve is lack of manual BP pumps, or stethoscopes. when I forget or lose my stethoscope even a $10 one will do, but even that seems too much.

    This is a good one!

    1) Incontinant people would have a "self cleaning" button.

    2) Family members would have a mute button.

    3) People wouldn't be so eager for have something wrong with them. It makes me crazy how many people are disappointed that we didnt diagnose them with something terrible.

    1. Give my patients something to do other than watch TV. Distraction is a documented pain control measure. There is no distraction for patients in hospitals.

    2. That nursing homes would not be "people warehouses". A society can be judged by the way it treats its elderly. We are failing.

    3. That nurses, everywhere, in every field, would stand together and stop bashing one another. As a unified force, we can stop begging/asking for respect and demand it.
