There’s NO such thing as a perfect nurse. Only a hypocrite would say that. One thing is for sure, we do our best to keep our patients safe. We never go to work with an aim to harm them. In fact, we sometimes skip meals and forget about our full bladder just to attend to their needs. We never complain because this is our choice anyway. We’re called professionals but we’re treated like a slave… but did we slap that to our patients’ faces? Hell no. Yeah, maybe we’re just great pretenders. No matter how many insulting words we hear from them, we still try to smile and give them the best nursing care that we could render because we were taught (I’m not sure if this applies to all the nurses) to treat them like a family member. 

Reality check: If your nurse is assigned to more than 10 “toxic” patients in 8 hours, do you expect her to be as ideal as you demand? I don’t think so. We try and do our best even if it’s unappreciated. But I’m sorry, we can’t promise to be ideal most of the time. Welcome to the REAL nursing world just in case your mind is still stuck in the REEL setting. Everybody makes mistakes. Even the great nursing leaders probably committed mistakes at some point of their lives… but through that mistakes, we learn… because like what I said, we don’t want to jeopardize our patients’ safety (and lose our license). 

Here’s my advice for you: Google the Effects of Burnout to Nurses’ Quality of Work and the Ideal Nurse-Patient ratio in a hospital setting. Maybe, you’ll understand what I am saying.

Few last words: We may not be a perfect nurse but at the end of the day, you can’t deny the fact that we still SAVE LIVES.

Kung magkasakit ka at makita mo ang nars na nag-aruga sa iyo, sa halip na magserbisyo sa dayuhan kapalit ng mas malaking suweldo, sabihin mo, “Salamat po.”
