I've noticed that on AN when someone doesn't have a decent comeback, they resort to "your not a nurse yet so you can't possibly have any input". Fine, then not as a nurse, or student nurse, but as a parent, if I heard you refer to any child, especially my child as a "peepee pants" I would not stop until I had your job, how's that? Grow up and find a more appropriate phrase that won't hurt the feelings of your "patients" if they over hear it.
You did not hear
the OP refer to anyone
by a derogatory name. Neither did anyone else, because those words were never uttered. You came to a discussion board intended for school nurses and read a post in which she vented about a particularly frustrating situation in which educational staff members failed to recognize or acknowledge the life-threatening nature of a student's condition.
You then proceeded to chastize her for expressing said frustration to her fellow school nurses on the BB in a way that you do not like.
If the OP had indeed remarked out loud about a student's peepee pants, you wouldn't need to "have her job," it would already be long gone, and rightfully so. But that is not what happened, so such threats are out of place.
I am not aware of any participants here who rely on "comebacks." We post here to vent and share ideas, not rip each other, because we understand the frustrations, working conditions and situations that we all share. We also recognize that the use of edgy language and imagery here is a means of blowing off steam, and does not reflect any of our actual habits in professional practice.
Any and all are welcome on this board, students included. But when students or the uninitiated choose to criticize rather than ask questions
, they run the risk of exposing their own lack of knowledge, experience and understanding. Your harsh commentary would tend to indicate that you have no better understanding of the initial situation than the staff members who complained about the inattention to wet britches and broken glasses as another student struggled to breathe. A lost opportunity to learn about cooperation, prioritization and emergency care.
