If Nurses Are Fucked, We’re Fucked

    Let’s not mention the injection mandates resulting in nurses quitting or being fired. That doesn’t fit the TV-supported big pharma narrative, does it Sam?

    I hate to break it to anyone that didn’t already know, but this has been going on for years, way before the pandemic. Nurses are just more victims of capitalism and sexism, and if something doesn’t change quickly you’ll be getting even worse medical care than you have been.

    Needs more equality in a female dominated industry, need more male nurses.

    This is why I’m glad Canada has a universal healthcare system…

    Hospitals are starting to use robots and have been for a number of years now. It’s happening more and more. Def not sure how I feel about that. There’s already too much of a disconnect between patients and healthcare staff, we need nurses not rowbits!

    Thanks so much for covering this, it’s really a gigantic systemic problem, and not new. I was a bedside BSN once…

    Hospitals are completely nasty to nurses, let alone patients. I’m not sure why anyone would want to be a nurse.

    CNA who worked 3rd shift on my hospital’s covid floor. There were nights we only had 1 CNA for every 15 patients and we’re one of the better staffed floors. And yeah, the getting punched one rings true…
    I’ve been peed on, grabbed, bitten, kicked, and punched. One time all within the same week. I do very much love my job and the work I’m doing but still… It is physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting…

    Thank you for this! The situation right now is terrifying behind the scenes. I’ve been in unsafe situations in my 15 years as a NICU RN. I have made errors because I had more patients assigned to me than was safe. The hospital’s profit motives driving these unsafe conditions are unethical, unsafe and overall terrifying.

    Thanks for amplifying the issues. Most of 39 yrs I worked was out of the most liberal ratio and having to do multiple ancillary roles at the same time. IT WAS HORRIBLE. ANA only lobbies for members and their own agenda at their own pace. In many places you will be fired for talking about union…

    There is only one reason for the shortage and needs not to be said but there is only one reason or people that are making this happen!

    Truth. I’d still be working in my favorite subacute rehab hospital if a certain northern NJ hospital chain hadn’t decided we weren’t making them enough money, despite our unit operating or near capacity the entire six years I’d been there until administration forced us to shut down. I’ve gone into school nursing and I ain’t ever going back to the hospital, despite not getting paid anywhere near as much as in a hospital nor getting anywhere near as many resources. (Kids aren’t all complete monsters.)
