I'm impressed with both of your most recent posts. You truly are the type of nurse that the word, "professional" means. Your workplace is blessed to have such a professional with your background.
You've earned my respect, and I'd like to get to know you a little better if possible. I too am all for co-operation, supporting your fellow staff member, etc. Maybe that's why some doctors don't treat some nurses with respect. Hmmm!
Having experienced the negative part of being an employee myself, only made me more stressed, more tired at the end of the day, and made the job itself have hang-ups.
I have always believed that what you mention in your messages is the way it should be. All nurses would then experience what the true profession of nursing is REALLY about. I believe that if nurses really worked together, as in any field of employment, things would go so much smoother, and it would be a joy to go to work the next day, because nurses would be experiencing the true field of nursing; the very thing that drove them to choose to become a nurse.
A good analogy is when driving on a highway, and you experience a traffic tie-up. The first thing the impatient driver does is ride the right shoulder to get up to the front of the line. (An activity that has always annoyed me.)
and cut in front of the person in the driving lane, therefore creating an unnecessary traffic congestion. When if that same driver remained in his former in-line position, not only would he probably get to where he is going faster, but would also keep the line moving, preventing the congestion in the first place, and all other drivers wouldn't be annoyed.
May you have an enjoyable day at work. You deserve it.
