the post:"seriously...do you really have to change out the freaking latex gloves at 1:40am?? i bet that freaking box can stay empty until 7am without any problems!!!!"the replies:"they do crazy stuff in the hospital to keep the patient and visitors from getting any sleep that's for sure. i hope your brother is getting better. thinking of you and praying for him and the family. hugs." "oh i'm with you girl! you can not get rest in a hospital. it's either checking bp,or waking you up to give you meds come on people!"i understand this person is distressed with their loved one in the hospital, but it is a hospital, not a hotel. ok, maybe changing out the gloves can wait, but you never know when there is an emergency, and people need them. and, we are required to make sure the patient is stable during the night and check in on them. at times, it seems you cannot win...either not doing enough or doing too much. we do some "crazy stuff" to purposely keep you awake, like checking bp and giving medications. i think the replies bother me more...so rude, unappreciative, etc... what happened to respect for caring for you or your loved one? guess they would have to walk in our shoes...hate that saying, but most medical staff have empathy, and we have also been in the hospital, and/or we have had a loved one there.
