Quote from MN-Nurse
If you happen to follow any of the previous "Stop at an accident threads" you would know there was very, very little chance the ones that stopped were allnurses members.
I disagree......for I think when nurses are faced with the decision to stop or not to stop.....they actually do stop. I encourage that nurses be careful what they try to do at the scene and looking at Nascar's post these nurses calmed some very scared teenagers.....which is about the extent of what most nurses....even ED/EMS trained nurses can do little at an accident scene without equipment to immobilize.
Most of the time we roll up on the scene....police are already there.....but when you see something happen it is instinct to call for help and to keep everyone calm.
Nascar....as the Mommy of a budding driver
....my worse nightmare will be that phone call.....Mrs. Mommy .......this is Your Worst Nightmare Hospital ED.......your daughter has been in an accident...
I am so happy everything is essentially OK......I wish your son a speedy recovery and God Bless those compassionate nurses who took the time to comfort a scared teen.
it's all going to be OK....
