    It just proves that so many sick children and adults are stuck with crappy families. How can anyone ever expect a nurse to want to do anything extra when the family can't extend common courtesy to the nurse?

    That sounds ridiculous. And not quite right. If I had a nurse taking care of my kid and by accident urine got everywhere and was stepped in, I'd feel so bad I'd buy her a new pair of socks! I don't know where some people are coming from. Sad.
    Thanks again CloudySue; that is the most thoughtful and caring thing to do -- I sure wouldn't expect it and it would be a nice surprise.

    Appreciate your feedback! I am vindicated. Agreed Sue, I didn't think it sounded right at all either. Is this what the world is coming to? Actually is, pretty sad...
