Why Nurses Need Hazard Pay

| IN, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I’m a senior nurse. A patient has been caught leaving her room to go to her car and smoke. After repeated warnings on numerous occasions, her doctor finally draws the line.)

Doctor: “If she’s well enough to go and smoke, I think she’s well enough to be discharged.”

(The patient is enraged at this, and starts yelling.)

Patient: “I need my cigarettes! You’re discriminating against me!”

(She finally leaves. I get called by another nurse to her former room several minutes later.)

Nurse: “You have to see this.”

(The patient’s room is completely smeared with feces; on the bed, in the bathroom sink, all over the walls. There’s even a pile just inside the door that we almost step on.)

Me: “What kind of person does something like this?! It’s not human!”

Nurse: “If you’re that upset about not getting your nicotine, something is wrong with you!”
