I am sorry to hear of your experience. I am a Male RN, and also had an eye-opening experience when my wife had to go into the hospital for a few days. I watch closely, and did see first hand the stress on the faces of the CNA' up to the RN's. I also saw first hand the stress being dealt out to them by busy Doctors who did not have time to clearify orders, or family members thinking they were the patients and bothering them for silly items. Since I am a nurse, I had no problem with the nursing staff, due to my respect to them and relating my understanding of the stress they were encountering. . My wife had great service, I believe due to respect and general couresty afforded to the nurses. I first hand have seen the attitude women nurses get, as oppose to me, when family believe I am a Doctor. I truly believe if you walk a mile in their shoes, the understanding will come quickly, the stress they live with on the job each day. It is always easier to destroy, than to build.
