Courtesy: Shakeel Choudhari Mosotho Makhoba(his comment on daily sun online:- It's very hard to be a nurse nowadays. If nurses did not do their work many children would have died from communicable diseases, if nurses did not care, there would be no hospitals. Consider how we are perceived:- If a patient goes missing, the nurse is blamed, the pharmacy does not dispense medicines, the nurse is blamed, the kitchen fails to supply meals on time, the nurse is blamed, if the laundry fails to deliver linen, the nurse is blamed, if the hospital is dirty, the nurse is blamed. 1 nurse cares for 10 pts but is expected to deliver quality nursing care. Everybody has rights except nurses. It is acceptable for every person to have mood swings but not a nurse. INDEED! not all nurses are angels, NEITHER are they ALL devils, They work under horrible and unbearable conditions & they are stressed out because of resource shortages (both human and material). Nursing is said to be a calling, but they also have families to feed, clothe, educate give shelter to etc. Nurses are being accused of being driven by money but do u know who works as hard and under such unbeatable and abnormal hours for charity? Nurses leave their children unattended at night to go on duty to serve the community that hates them, They work over weekends, during public holidays because the very people that hates them want to enjoy the holidays, so they dump their frail relatives at hospitals under the care of 'THESE CRUEL' nurses, I'm proud to be a nurse? Are you???? PLS SEND this to ALL the nurses you know, I've just done my bit.
