I have been a nurse for 3 years. In my short three years, my heart and passion to better this profession grew like a wildfire! I’ve never been one to sit back and just let bad things happen. It didn’t take me but a year to realize that healthcare today is much about the business and less about the patient safety and nurses involved (that’s what it feels like)! There are people in professional positions to help “support nurses” and better “quality control” but you never hear from those people unitl “bad” things happen. You only hear about what you did or didn’t do. Very little praise, and lots of run around. It can be extremely draining and discouraging, and I’m tired of watching GOOD nurses leave the bedside and the profession because of it! When you are set up for failure with unsafe nurse-to-patient ratios, the risk for error increases significantly! Nurses can’t take, and shouldn’t have to, that kind of pressure. We’re talking LIVES NOT LATTE’S. No Re-dos!
