Incredible lack of compassion & tact. Would not want you for my nurse!

Ding! Ding! Ding!  We haven't heard this little gem of self-righteousness for a while.  At least we've not been accused of being jealous of anyone's good looks or brilliant future career.

So sad to see nurses pummeling this guest who comes here with a horrific experience to relate, yet in return she receives condemnation from other NURSES! It's beyond belief how bizarre humans can be! Instead of understanding,  we have nurses on this post who would rather blame! She did nothing wrong except turn to you all for help!

What kind of help the OP could potentially receive from strangers on public online message board? Should NURSES condemn their colleagues for practicing nursing on the level of third world because they live and work in third world country? 

The OP showed the incredible degree of naivety which is, unfortunately, a characteristic feature of US citizens when they drop out of touristic safety bubble while abroad. To tell the truth, in case of real emergency very likely nobody would "hold her hand" and "tell that everything will be OK" even in the best US hospital. There is no time for lulling and pampering in high-acuity preop, and telling patient that "everything will be OK" when it is not obviously so is against nursing and medical professional ethic behavior as it is, in a nutshell, lying to the patient. This can be taken very seriously here in the USA, if you are by a chance not aware of it. She would most likely get a doze of IV short-acting  benzo with or without narc and left with that. 

In Russia she, most probably, would be yelled at and made to clean the floor she spotted with blood dropping from her face, because there can be only one nurse for 30 to 50 post op patients and no one else. 

This is not about "compassion". It is about being realistic and expect what should be expected, not what one is dreaming of.

I suspect the OP has returned under a different name...
