OK, I know I'm not the only nurse who has encountered the "VIP" patient. You know the story...you get report on the new admit coming to your unit and you are told to take extra special care of this patient. This infuriates me to no end. It implies that I'm going to treat my patients differently based on social status. I don't know about you guys, but I treat all of my patients like VIP's. Am I being silly or are there others out there who feel this way?
