Nurse Takes A Walk Rather Than Jeapordize Career
I usually don’t write about general nursing issues but a post that I read over at AllNurses.com really made an impression. Faced with insufficient staff and an overwhelming patient load, this nurse said “no way” and quit on the spot.
The responses to this post were generally very supportive. I wonder what readers of this blog have to say about this.This nurse was apparently trying to protect herself should anything go wrong and she be held accountable.
This is why hospitals hire travel nurses. The nursing shortage makes this scenario all too common.
