There have been times where I really felt like I was going to lose it. Usually when I haven't had anything to eat or a second to go to the bathroom. I think it is a joke when I hear "we really care about our nurses!" If you did really care about me, you would make sure that we had enough staff so I could take a real lunch break. And Nurse's Week is a joke. It is nice that they provide free lunch to us in the cafeteria.....not so nice that we are so busy we don't get a chance to actually get any food or eat it! The only people who really get a chance to eat our free lunch are PCTs, unit clerks, and nurses who have a desk job.
