Working Conditions

  1. I was talking to a friend I went to school with and was shocked at how her hospital appears to use/abuse their nurses. So, I was wondering if hers is a rare circumstance, or if she has common working conditions and if my working conditions are just amazing.

    Even though on nights, we have to transport our own patients ourselves, it's not until 2200 or 2300 that transport goes home, so up to that point, we can concentrate on our patients and not on taking them places.
