I like your idea ...
Some of the issues that are related to errors in healthcare is "dehumanization of healthcare providers." That includes how leaders manage healthcare workers including nurses - they are mostly seen in relation to finances, which leads to uncaring treatment by management. Healthcare workers see themselves as a "pawn" (Porter-O'Grady & Malloch, 2015, p.373)

Looks like SMAP (See Me As a Person) needs to apply to nurses there and not just patients!!
I can't tell you the number of times I go to help someone to the BSC, bedpan, bathroom, etc. and then go "oh yeah, I
was going to pee too!", then I leave the room, get involved with something else, totally forget about my own bathroom needs until I help the next
patient and this goes on until I finally can't forget because I need to go so bad.
I just have no words for this "boot camp". How about the doctors, admins, etc. go through this too- but I guess the docs and admins are too high on the totem pole and it's just easier to blame the nurses.
