What if the Boston bomber was your pt - page 16

I'm just sitting here listening to the coverage of the terrorist attack. The suspect is in the hospital, injured, and obviously being cared for by nurses. What if that nurse was me? Related... Read More

    I think the hardest part of caring for a celebrity and/or infamous criminal would the scrutiny that you (the nurse) would be under. There'd be a gaggle of lawyers just waiting to tear you apart. This would be the real basis on which I'd be tempted to refuse such an assignment.

    Prisoners are admitted ot our hospital with guards at bedside 24/7. .

    *** The guards annoy me. One recent prisoner I took care of had tried to escape from prison and jumped from a 3 story roof. He was intubated, sedated and chemicaly paralized. He had huge external fixators on both of his fracured femers. The guy wasn't going anywhere. I had to tolerate two fat guard taking up space in the small ICU room. They would get annoyed whenever I turned the volume down on the TV so I could do my assesments. They resented being asked to move whenever we had to bring in several staff to do cares. They just sat there watching TV and eating (constantly) while making comments about how easy this over time was.

    The unit I work on gets a lot of prisoners. Sometimes the guards are really annoying. many make inappropriate jokes about the prisoners, staff ......huff and purf when we come in etc....

    Wow. Holy...cow. Thank you for sharing this. This story is, well, real. This is what happened at BI. This is how the nurses responded.

    I have almost painful admiration for those nurses. With the victims and their families--right down the hall, in a city devastated, confused, and angry--they just did what they do. They. Are. Awesome.

    (and you know how many of us--if actually placed in a similar situation, would have done exactly the same thing.)
