did anyone see the nurse on Hack last night

  1. The nurse on hack stole medications from another patient and actually said the patient thought they were getting four pills!!! I was shocked and thought it made nurses look really bad. The nurse admitted it was theft. I am tempting to write the person who wrote the script and tell them and tell them my thoughts.

    Oh yeah! I saw it. I was sick to my stomach. Anyone who would do a thing like that is insane. They should just take their license out and burn it with the autumn leaves. I would have stuck to my guns and insisted the youngster be move to medical facility. He was very young. If harm would come to him the nurse would be responsible.

    Oramar I agree it made the profession look bad.

    But it DOES happen-how many of you have worked with nurses with addictions? Co-workers diverting meds? I can not imagine living with myself knowing I took a dying pts mso4 and gave them saline...We have all seen it...

    ktwlpn I did work with an RN that was caught stealing darvocets from patient bins. She went through drug rehab but no one ever looked at her the same. She finally left.

    I watched the first episode of Hack several weeks ago. The one where he helped a guy get his teenage daughter back after she ran away with someone she met on the internet. At the end of the show the cabbie 1. Wakes up the neighbors banging on their door by mistake, 2. Breaks the door down to the right apt. 3. Beats the two guys inside to a bloody pulp. And then he tells the father and the daughter (that he has just recovered) to tell the police EVERYTHING that happened so the two guys he beat up will go to jail. Then he tells them to just leave out the part about HIM ever being involved. Like that is going to happen. Just too many witnesses for that. I didn't see this episode, but this show protraying nurses in an unrealistic/unprofessional light does not really surprise me. I think this show has a real problem with it's technical advisors.
