Insights in Nursing Podcast, Episode 11

Posted by isntshelovlei on August 27, 2010

Can you believe that a patient who’d just had a C-section two days prior was actually asked to “tidy up” her hospital room before she was discharged? One of the midwifes (allegedly) described the task as “those bits that we don’t have time for.” Wow. Just wow. Maybe that equal access, government-funded health care isn’t all it’s cracked up to be… And what about nurses with doctorates??—Are they doctors? Are they nurses? What do we call them? Paging Dr. Nurse? Check out these topics and more on the latest episode of Insights in Nursing with Kim from the Emergiblog, Terri over at Nurse Ratched’s Place, host and jack of all trades Jamie Davis, and yours truly.

  1. Just because you are in a room in a hospital, it doesn’t mean you leave the place a huge mess. Personally, I am all for piling the used towels in one spot, putting all peripads in the garbage instead of lying around all over, wiping your own blood off the toilet seat and general light housekeeping. After all, just because there is someone around cleaning, doesn’t mean you abuse the situation. I am not talking about major housekeeping here…just picking up after yourself like mom told us to do…..courtesy for the person coming in to clean.
