this is off topic, but i will respond.
at one hospital i worked the term for the l&d nurses by the other nurses was, the princesses-of-nursing. i highly disagree. there are some bad and good nurses in l&d just as it is the case in any other specialty.
back on topic,
i get the op's point, however the nurses are not giving you less information or bugging you to take a patient because he/she thinks that he/she is cooler then you. in fact, er nurses have very little say in actually caring for his/her patients prior to transfer. he/she is pressured to get his/her patients up no matter how it gets done and is penalized for not doing it fast (note: i left out efficiency because er nurses are not penalized for not covering all the bases... management emphasizes that this is the job of the floor nurses... icu, or, med surg, etc...) thus in my experience i have seen nurses who are not quick and who are not very experienced in the er tend to drop the ball in most areas during a transfer and think it is "ok". in fact the only time i have seen experienced nurses behave this way is when management insists that he/she behaves this way through penalizing them on his/her time management.
therefore, the environment, organized chaos + lousy management combine to make it difficult for an er nurse to cover all the things one patient needs prior to admission.... this of course puts a strain on the med surg and other specialty nurses... however, those of us who are grown up (and/or worked other floors) know that there is nothing better about a rn that works one specialty over a rn that works another. we all work hard, for long hours, and many times for lousy pay and short-staffed!
