I love talking to nurses about medical dramas and tv shows and am curious to hear your thoughts!
Please do not suggest "hawthorne" "mercy" or "nurse jackie" as accurate portrayals of nurses! For obvious reasons! lol
I think the winner is still E.R, the show always portrayed nurses as smart, under appreciated, under paid, skilled clinicians who got the job done! I like that E.R always showed nurses actually performing nursing duties whereas in House and Grey's the Doctors apparently don't need us as they can do everything including giving meds and cleaning up dirty patients! The most accurate nursing portrayal in E.R was when a trauma rolled in, the rooms always had more nurses then docs! I hate seeing shows and movies where Doctors do it all!
Would be greatto hear from some of you...
