My mom had surgery last week and was treated well up until she was in recovery. My mom is not a needy person and tolerates pain very well. She asked for pain meds for the first time, she hit the nurses button and her nurse came in just pass the door and said "what" my mom started to say "the pain is" and the nurse interrupted and said "let me guess you want pain meds" my mom said "yes please" the nurse rolled her eyes and left the room. My mom, Stepdad and I just looked at each other.20 mins went by so I went to the nurses station and what is her nurse doing, talking on her cell giggling away!!! I said "excuse me Miss" she looked at me and said "um I'm on the phone" another nurse overheard and asked me what was going on so I told her and she said I'll be right in. She came into my moms room and apologized so many times for the other nurse and took it upon herself to give my mom Tue meds and then called the Dr to let him know what happened to cover her butt. My mom looked at me and said "you'll do great in nursing school and you and the nurse who helped me will leave nurses like that in the dust" I overheard the Dr talking to the nurse who was suppose to be taking care of my mom and apparently this is not her 1st time doing this , I'd like to know why she still has a job!!
