Real Nurses

I have been touring the mommy blog circuit and there is a lot of talk of Real Moms. It is a meme in where the moms tell what Real Moms do.... I have seen some funny posts, some touching posts......I have loved them all.....but no one tagged me that I could see.......so......I decided to start my own Meme called Real Nurses..... and since I have a few other nurses who read me, I am basically tagging any nurse who reads this and wants to participate, just leave me a comment to let me know you are joining so that I can check out your answers too!

Real Nurses....

....will hug the pain in the ass family member of a dying patient for as long as they need and realize that the only reason they are a PITA is because they are scared and grieving

....will talk to the recently deceased palliative care patient as she/he prepares them for their family members to view

....can do a manual digital extraction of stool as 11:50 am, wash their hands and go for lunch at 12 noon and eat a sandwich, with their hands

You Are IT!!!!

I will say this over and over. I don't know how you nurses do it everyday day in and day out. You deserver great respect. Doctors pop in and out on patients...you guys sit there and deal with them the whole time...

Respect...respect...respect

Hi there:

I'm thinking about what real nurses do, and as soon as I write my list, I'm going to tag some other nurses. This is a great meme.
