I had the temerity to point out some less-than-effective nursing behavior before, and was threatened with a range of personal revenge up to and including threatened (but not acted upon) unprofessional behavior. Mine was mild compared to Dr. Shadowfax’s, with the tag line:
But the rest of the day was no different. Note that during this whole time the nurses weren’t exactly jumping on the other patients, either. Getting anything done was like pulling teeth. I hate to rag on nurses, since without them I get nothing done, and many a good nurse has saved my ass. But good lord it’s infuriating when you are stuck with the “B” team.
I predict his local nursing mafia will make him Persona Non Grata, and he’s going to have to kiss a lot of B-team backside to get out of this one. (And, we’ve all been there, I’ve just actively censored myself before posting.)
So, syonara Shadowfax, it’s been nice to know you.
