Not only are they dashing from patient to patient, most of these patients are critical. They rarely see them on the floor before surgery, and as soon as patients can stagger to their feet, home they go.

And you know this ... how, exactly? Do you have a link to information not provided in the OP's link?

I can't wait to see your proof ...

True, and hospital patients are sicker now, thanks to insurance companies booting them out as soon as they can.

The memes going around Facebook about this are hysterical.

My favorite is one of Florence Nightingale playing solitaire.

One of the Facebook group pages I saw was "Nurses With Cards". The sarcasm is delicious!

PriscillaVanilla DID say "probably" multiple times. That indicates that she doesn't know for a fact, and she never said otherwise, and therefore isn't required to provide proof.


She expressed an opinion, that is all. A strong one...but OK.

Yes, she had to be a Republican with a comment like that. Wonder how much free time she has in her job?

My daughter is a Cardio-thoracic ICU nurse. She works 12.5+ hour shifts with usually only a 20 minute break, she is required to rotate days/nights/weekends/holidays, and she cleans up a lot of poop for not a whole lot of pay. She also has to deal with dying patients and their stressed out families. I have a lot of respect for the job she does. I couldn't do it.

Wow! Wish they actually tended to patients in our hospital. Most are sitting in chairs with the patient monitors and a boat load of charts they update. On the rare occasion that they are passing out meds ..the disposition is equally indifferent. Patients are a bane in their eyes. I know as I spent 3 torture ridden months watching the "team" ignore my mother's care. Kinda like the way folks non chalantly toss a kleenex away...they had zero momentum to cure or care.
