    Since short-staffing/obscene workload is not acceptable as an excuse for nurses, I don't understand why it is acceptable for pharmacy or any other department in the hospital. No excuse is valid enough when it comes to nurses, yet any excuse flies for everyone else.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if every department/employee had to face the same intense, obsessive, intrusive scrutiny that nurses do when it comes to doing their job.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if every department/employee had to validate, justify, and sit through intense "Monday morning quarter-backing" over every decision, action, or non-action that nurses do when it comes to doing their job.

    Wouldn't it be interesting to see how much easier the nurse's job would be if every departmant/employee had to achieve the same expected, impossible and ridiculously high standards when it comes to job performance that nurses do.
