I have been a nurse for a long time, and have seen my fair share of traumas, deaths, and unspeakable disasters.
I witnessed my first pedi death a couple of weeks ago during a trauma.
Usually, it takes me a couple of weeks to digest and come to terms with a traumatic event, be it personal or professional.
I have had nightmares every night since I experienced this horrible event. The news broadcasts of this child's death has only made my heart weep more.
To all the pedi nurses out there: how do you cope with this?
