    Anderson Cooper also had one of the nurses on his daytime talk show "Anderson." It's truly nice to see nurses getting the recognition they deserve. Anderson Cooper actually touched on how it peeved him how the Doctors were getting the bulk of the praise - stating that the nurses were "Unsung Heroes."

    Does any one know what these CEO's were doing while these babies and patient's on life support were being hand carried by nursing and firsrt responders down stair wells? Were the CEO"s hand carrying a patient on life support down any stair well? They do earn the big bucks!!!
    When it's all said and done- the CEO will come out and say it's time for more nursing lay offs to help pay for the storm damage to these hopsitals, never looking to their useless selves for a pay cut to make up the lost money.
    I have said it before and I say it agein- Of what use ios the CEO in these kinds of disasteous situations- nothing but in the way!!!

    I have to say I appreciate your concern, but I work at NYU, and we are treated extremely well. We're a Magnet hospital and I feel that our CEOs actually take pride in it. I and my co-workers are extremely grateful for the speedy response after the generators failed by the EMS crews, and our own administration arranging for other beds for our patients. There will be no layoffs, trust me.

    Rock on Stephen and Anderson for shouting us out!

    Wow--Thank you Stephen for recognizing the Nursery nurses.!!! As a fellow Nursery nurse from Sullivans Island, SC who went through Hurricane Hugo, I applaud all of the nurses who would not let "Sandy" defeat them! (while worrying about their own families) Unfortunately alot of people think that nursery nurses just feed and rock babies! We are the proctectors of God's little angels
