Quote from gayle_the_RN
I'm sorry for the long post, but I just read another Megalomaniac ER blog slamming floor nurses as stupid and lazy, refusing report, fighting with ER because they're uncomfortable taking unstable patients ER wants to move because they need the beds. There is more than just you, ER.
gayle, i get your frustration...definitely.
the only comment i have about er nurses needing to give report, is if they didn't...
couldn't the er become backed up?
imagine if all floor nurses said, "can i get back to you"?
it's the makings of something potentially catastrophic.
as for the personality, i can promise that you will find the histrionic, righteous, indignant diva damsel, on every
it is NOT only er nurses, nor is it all er nurses.
so look at it as a character flaw, vs a specialty flaw.
again, appreciate the vent as i'm sure most of us can sympathize w/you.
it's easier to deal with, when you don't stereotype everyone as from the same cut.
besides, the nurses who do act like that...i see it as their problem, their shortcoming, and their burden.
let it go, and move on.
