I've never cried in a sad/depressing situation with a pt, but I can certainly understand it. Everyone deals with emotion differently. Some guys cry, others hold it in. Personally, I drink beer.

From a personal standpoint, as a cancer patient who has just been given even more bad news, my preference would be for the nurse who displays humanity. (Some humility wouldn't hurt, either.)

I work in oncology. You would certainly get humanity from me, but you would never get my tears. They're reserved for family and friends.

How about we just agree to differ?

I wish you all the best in what lies ahead of you and hope for the best possible outcome.

Large gin and tonic does it for me. Hic.

I've only cried one time while working in the Hospital. I became an RN in June '11. I was a CNA for 2 years prior to that on a Med/Surg floor. One day we had a patient that was on the floor c/o DIB. Unknown to me at that time, this pt was terminal and was sent to our floor in an attempt to provide a comfortable death. When the patient c/o increasing DIB, I tried to get several RNs to come look at the pt and 2 blew me off. Finally, another RN came in and we got the ball rolling on some supportive measures and the information came out that the pt was dying. The pt died within 30 minutes. I was so mad and so upset that I had to leave the floor for a few minutes and gain my composure. A few tears were shead.
