I'm a student. During clinical I watched one nurse assist another in inserting an IV for a blood transfusion. The nurse, who happens to be an assistant manager, told the patient "You stink like a farm animal ... You're just a sh--ty sh--ty bang bang." The other nurse said nothing. The manager kept repeating himself over and over ad nauseam. The Pt was 11 with CP, pseudomonas, pneumonia, diarrhea, contractures, secretions, etc. You get the picture. What would you do? And are many nurses this insensitive? The Pt was alert. I'm starting to really rethink whether I want to be a nurse. By the way, I did do something about this.
