It's Orange County CA so CABRN

Good to know, so I can avoid that hospital like the plague. I just saw part of that first episode...God help their patients. That's all I'm saying.

The agency who provided travel nurses to Orange County. CA issued a Press Release in response to backlash from nurses . . .an excerpt is below. Spew Alert: they want to help alleviate the nursing shortage.

"Through the Scrubbing In participation Aya Health intends to create a greater awareness about the heroic work nurses do every day. According to the Bureau of Labor Statics (sic) the United States is experiencing a nursing shortage that is only expected to worsen. . "

To summarize the next point, they hope to inspire young people to choose a nursing career with their show.

Anyway, I came across this contact info for Aya Health executives should anyone be interested.

How did those two nurses get hired without license and arrest records? Credentialing and compliance is up my butt everyday to make sure everything is in order

And why in the world is it called "Scrubbing in"? They aren't scrubbing into surgery.

I gotcha...no comparable "reality" TV show about doctors. Good point.

Yeah I love medical dramas with eccentric characters from House to Dr Mark Craig on St Elsewhere. My response wasn't intended to be sarcastic at all.(in case the prior comment was referring to me)

I'm having a hard time imagining a show about doctors like that' date=' complete with generous eyefuls of the female surgeon's rack, or airline pilots showing up for work just sober enough to avoid getting busted. MTV has lots of shows with varying degrees of "reality"... some are honest and respectful. I just find it insulting that they chose the trashiest format.[/quote']

I agree. "Catfish" and "True life" I think are reality shows put out by MTV that are pretty well done. Either format for a nursing reality show would have done the profession justice. Instead they went with the "Jersey Shore" and "Real World" format, which makes a mockery of it.

How the hell do they get those scrubs on and off?! They look like they'd need to be cut off.

Nope, I didn't take this as sarcasm...merely a simple statement of fact.

I'm struggling to think of any "real" physicians who would be caught on camera performing the same sort of antics depicted on the "Scrubbing In" trailer, but perhaps I'm not watching enough TV!

I absolutely refuse to watch this piece of trash. I did see the trailer, and that was enough for me. I want to know what company hired them, so I can avoid them like the plague. Traveling is hard enough without having to overcome the picture that these fools paint. I would love to take the young nurses under my wing so to speak. They wouldn't have enough energy to go out and drink and make fools of themselves. I can't believe that a real hospital would hire these fools and what about HIPPA. Most not be much of a concern at the hospital in Orange County with all those cameras.

This is a comment from someone on the MTV Facebook page:

"I don't see the problem with show it's great. It is just showing what normal nurses do outside of work, they don't act like that when their at work so I don't see the problem. I'm sure if they followed around doctors, lawyers, surgeons, ect... it would be the same thing. We are all human and have to be young at one point..just because we have careers doesn't mean we can't have fun and act like boring old ppl."

Just.. Wow.
