Why is nursing like the war. Im a new grad nurse, and ofcourse the more experience nurses think they know it all more. They sit at the station gossiping all night, which till this day 5 months in i refuse to be a part of, I already have my own issues to be talking about others. I heard a THUMP, this shift, and literally, I WAS THE ONLY ONE who heard it. I passed by 2 nurses, which 1 of them the patient belonged to, ran to the room and found the patient fell, I called the nurse in and she ran in, as soon as the others saw they all ran to the scene like the scene of Lion king when simba was caught in the tampede or whatever its called andhis father tried to save him. Im helping the assigned nurse pick the pt up, these nurses come and literally try to take over, i was on the pts R arm trying to help pick her up, 3 nurses all wanted that right arm to pick her up. lets do this" let's do this" it's such a mess. i just stepped back and out and let them do whatever. If anything, im not desperate for "OMG, YOU SAVED A LIFE" from a fall, where the patient is oriented, and tripped over something. It's like when a rapid response happens, 500 peolple want to rush in, and you cant do anything effective because everyone wants to do it too.
Literally, why are nurses like so controlling and want to do something in everything!?!
