Anyone see the story regarding the school nurse who thought one of the students had a routine stomach virus when the teacher summoned her only to discover the kid was showing signs of a stroke?In interviews she is quoted as saying she thought he was "fixin' to die".Discuss.Me first-color me appalled......
School Nurse Assumes Sick Kid She'''s Called to Help Has the Stomach Flu. One Look Has Her Calling 911
Quote from ktwlpn
I did read the story,I also know that terms such as "fixin' to die" "circling the drain" etc.I also know it is "regional".My point is it makes her sound ignorant.We nurses continue to strive to be recognized as professionals.I would th ok no anyone with even a minimum of education would put their best foot forward during an interview and use proper English.I guess it's my issue.
My advice to you is don't move to the south. We speak like this. And I'd say most of us are intelligent. I don't chart the way I talk. I have presented to the ED saying "I feel like I'm fixing to die". It doesn't make me a hick or unintelligent. It just means that I am from the south.
So she said it in an interview. I highly doubt she wrote it in her chart
