Nurses are the punching bag most of the time. Problem with the doctor? Patients tell the nurse. The meal service? Nurse hears it. Radiology? Other departments? The telephone? The housekeeper? You name it. We hear about it. So please, voice your concerns but do it nicely smile we are dealing with a billion fires to put out at any given time during a shift, and it’s likely there are some more critical than a TV you can’t turn on. Sorry, the Unstable SVT next door does not come after your cold meal tray.
