I usually am intimidated when taking care of other health care professionals- just feel as though I'm being 'judged' on my techniques, knowledge, etc. However, the other night I took care of one of the nicest patients I have ever had... he complimented me on how nice I was and even told me I was a "very good nurse." I found out later in the evening he was an MD although currently not practicing due to some health problems. I think that experience will change how I view taking care of other healthcare professionals from now on. Not having that information right at the beginning of the shift was better, I think, as I went in there and treated him like any other patient, which is really what he needed at that point.
