There's a trumper nurse I know that is also anti mask.  I don't know what to think of him, but hero isn't it.  He is almost certainly the exception.

Wow, just by reading the title of the article made me cry.

Lots of nurses in my family.. or was.  Most are dead or retired now.. except one cousin, who is against flu shots, and wants to reopen everything now.  I'm a bit worried about her..

I could have told you that, subby. My mom was a nurse and she's the greatest person on Earth, therefore all nurses are the greatest person on Earth.

Nursing is really hard, I know from experience, but my ex made 80,00K a year. Working those hours it is hard. There is a lot of stress.

That was rather moving. Good on the nurse and the dentist pilot.

Nursing is weird. We make a lot of money, but what we do for that income is ridiculously difficult. And yet, if I won the lottery tomorrow I'd go to work for free. I think the money is just compensation for having looked into the abyss and not being able to unsee it for the rest of your life. And once you've experienced that, regular life starts to lose its gravity. It's a moth to the flame sort of thing. Difficult to explain. Probably why nurses so often end up with cops and firefighters. We are broken in the same ways.

I encountered an anti mask dentist the other day. Not by being a patient, thankfully.

What unit do you work in?

I know some med surg nurses that would gladly run away after a lottery win. And a lot of the young kids bounce from job to job trying to get as far from the MICU or RNF as possible. I don't blame them.

My GF is an oncology nurse, and yea she's right about 80K/year, actually a little more. She earns every bit of it. For those who doubt that - just try to imagine your every day at work, looking out at a room full of cancer patients and knowing the majority of them will be in the ground in a year. The lady wearing the grey Old Navy shirt, the one whose daughter thinks she might want to become a vet when she grows up because she loves all kinds of animals so much (just like your daughter!) .... she won't live to see her daughter graduate HS. Oh and that patient last week who was not handling things so well and literally said that she though all cancer nurses should have to shave their heads so they know what it's like (yea that really happened, but those patients are very rare). Sorry, suck it up, act like you didn't quite hear that comment, and treat here with every bit as much compassion as anyone else. My nurse and I are not young .... she's about to hit the big 50 ... but after a full week she almost always needs every bit of Saturday to do absolutely nothing. TV, couch, and naps.
To Ophelia - you are spot on. For the most part nurses do what they do because their hearts are just way too damn big. I'm sending a huge virtual hug to you and all other nurses out there!
To those who feel it's a lot of money .... how often does your daily job include the possibility of killing someone if you make one mistake? And don't think you get the chance to check and double check your work on those rare occasions, because for a chemo nurse this is all friggin' day, every day, almost always while juggling several patients at the same time. How often do you literally choke back tears on your way home from work?
Anyway, Happy Saturday to all

I never really thought about it but Ive got a few cop and firefighter friends who are all married to nurses.

Seriously, we all need to appreciate nurses. They are front liners and gatekeepers between you and your idiot doctor.
 
2020-09-19 8:33:44 AM  
Mom was an RN; helped set up the first burn unit at Baltimore city hospital. Worked in the ER. Was a surgical nurse. Never talked about her work but would help me with homework, watch all my ballgames and even have a game of catch with me if dad was running late.  She finished her career running a hospice.... Then died in hospice two years ago from liver cancer.  Her hospice nurse was amazing, too.
You're damn right, the best people.

Ophelia Boobs:

Ive never met a nurse that wasnt busted up mentally and eventually physically.

Every specialty tries to make you busted in different ways. 

Psych nurses are insane, and they usually know it.
ER nurses can be simultaneously jaded and too empathetic for their own good.
ICU? Adrenaline junkies. If it isnt life or death, they dont even wanna be there.
Night shift floor nurses? beyond the kids who got hired for it are just weird. SO WEIRD.

Honestly, There are more than you think.

While nursing unions disproportionately donate blue, the 'advanced' practice ones doneate red or almost only red.

Nurses are not immune to propoganda that appeal to their demos. Trump won the majority of white female voters, including a majority of white college educated voters.

In proportions that nurses are PoC vs White, Male v Female, young v old, almost all college educated or at least certificate nurses (some exist) they vote like their demo generally does with maybe a slight lean blue because they work in a pro social profession, but then a hard lean red when they get into the 'masters, phd' group, but whther thats because those nurses may be more white, old or likely to be male, or because they are also to make north of 120k and think this will line their own pockets, i dunno.

Wife is a nurse.  The "mask" idea, sounds good.  Looks like it helps.  Makes you feel better.  But much like "ducking and covering" from a lava flow is about as useful in stopping the spread of a dangerous virus.  Imagine you wear a mask.  Let's say even a N95 mask!  Well if you come into contact with Covid.  It MAY stop you from breathing it in.  Then when you touch your mask to remove it it's on your hands, now you set your keys down its on the counter, its on your keys, its on your steering wheel its on your cheek you scratched...PPE is meant to be 1 time use and properly disposed of by knowing how to properly remove rubber gloves, yes there is a process used to remove rubber glove so as not to spread infection.....

99.9999 of people know none of this.  those same people are using the same mask since day 1 and no the red bandana is useless.  A Pandemic will ravage people until there is a proper treatment...Research the spanish flu....Covid and spanish flu are transmitted the same.  Red/Blue no matter...this thing will only get worse with how we are turning a blind eye and pretending its gone.  Much like kicking a landmine...it's only a matter of time.  Sleep well all.  Social distancing will not stop the spread.  But your mask you wear for 30 days straight is completely useless.

I've heard some nasty stories about nursing management (where the management are nurses).  Basically "nurses eat their own".  Partially a women thing, but probably mostly a nurse thing.
