national Nurse Shadow Day ?????

  1. We should collectively write to our deadbeat legislators & request a National Nurses Shadow Day where they could follow us around, see what its like and maybe GAIN A LITTLE RESPECT for us. This idea could then be expanded to include your friendly neighborhood CEO and CFO, CNO, etc.

    Oh wait. What the HELL am I thinking? Our work is soooo beneath these folks. Why, they can't get their hands dirty . Nevermind. I am just hallucinating again.

    Come and see just what I do
    Me and my sha-dow
    Hey lookout for that blood and poo

    We work in all kinds of wea-ther
    Get to know me,
    And maybe things will get be---ter---
    (Or maybe not)

    Me and my sha-dow
    come and work night shift with me......
    Me and my shadow,
    Where are you going,
    why must you flee????

    You hardly got to see
    what it is that I....do....
    Come back..you really don't ca-re

    Me and my shadow
    It has left me all alone
    Management is now absent
    Can't even get them on the phone

    Maybe they'll make things

    During nurses week our suits do shadow people. Of course they make sure the person being shadowed has a fantastic doable assignment and nice families. Our VP of Nursing said that there didn't seem to be any problem with those that were "shadowed" getting the job done. My questions are: What was the census and acuity, did the nurse have his/her typical assignment, were they purposely given a lighter load than usual?
    I'd prefer all suits with RN licensure who are no longer (or never really were) direct caregivers at the bedside, be requird to put in clinical time and not be given preferential treatment and they should also not be introduced to the patients as VP of Nursing. Should be I will be your nurse today. And no easy assignments-they get what we get.
