Profession of Nursing needs a "Care Plan"

  1. Care Plans. We all learned how to write them while in school. For me I have found the care plan to be very effective in other elements of life also for problem solving. Perhaps the Nursing Profession needs a care plan if it is going to grow and thrive. Right now the Nursing Profession is ill.

    Lets start our own care plan to try to revive this once wonderful career. What would you put in the "Nursing Care Plan"??

    ONE THING ABOUT IT THOUGH IS THAT WE ARE BAD PATIENTS ON THE WHOLE. NURSES HAVE TO ACTUALLY CARE IN ORDER TO GET BETTER. AN AVERAGE MOST NURSES ARE BURNED OUT AND FED UP.

    I AM WORKING IN CALIFORNIA NOW AND THIS PLACE IS VERY AWE INSPIRING. THESE NURSES ACTUALLY STAND UP TO MD'S AND ARE SUPPORTED BY ADMINISTRATION. THE MD'S ARE NOT ALLOWED TO YELL, CUSS, SCREAM, HOLLER OR DOWNGRADE THE NURSES IN ANY WAY. THEY STAND UP FOR PATIENTS WELFARE AND HEALTH STATUS. IF AN MD ORDERS INAPPROPRIATLY THE ADDITUDE IS NOT WELL ITS HIS/HER FAULT IF THEY DIE. THEY INSTEAD CALL THE MD AND TELL HIM IT IS INAPPROPRIATE AND ASK FOR NEW ORDERS. THESE PEOPLE LOVE THEIR JOBS AND LOVE THEIR PATIENTS AND THEY CARE. PATIENT CARE OUT HERE IS AMAZING AND THESE NURSES ARE AMAZING. WHAT A RELIEF......IT DOES HAPPEN. I ASKED WHAT THEIR SECRET WAS AND THEY ALL SAID: "WE STOOD TOGETHER AND SAID THAT WE WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE. THE HOSPITAL WAS FACED WITH FIRING US OR SUPPORTING US. THEY SUPPORTED US AND THE PATIENTS HAVE BENEFITED MORE THAN ANYONE." THEY STOOD TOGETHER ABOUT STAFFING RATIOS AND THEY REFUSED UNSAFE RATIOS. THEY DID NOT ALLOW ABUSE OF ANY STAFF MEMBERS WHICH STOPPED THE MD ABUSE PROBLEM. NOW WOULDN'T THAT BE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK AT.......LET ME TELL YOU IT IS.

    WHY CAN'T WE AS A PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE STAND BY EACH OTHER AND COME UP WITH A PLAN??? WHY DO DOCTORS STAND BY EACH OTHER TILL THE BITTER END NO MATTER WHAT AND NURSES ROLL OVER ON EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME. IS IT BECAUSE WE ARE MAJORITY WOMEN OR WHAT?
