We ask the questions you don’t
Doctors are clueless about what really happens in the beds, wards, and halls of our hospitals. That’s why we went to the experts: nurses.
“We always question doctors because a lot of the time they are only there for five seconds and we have much more experience with patients.” – Registered nurse with 16 years’ experience
This is what I mean when I say to get a second opinion
“We’re not going to tell you your doctor is incompetent, but if I say, ‘You have the right to a second opinion,’ that can be code for ‘I don’t like your doctor’ or ‘I don’t trust your doctor.’” – Linda Bell, registered nurse
Before you gossip…
“Feel free to tell us about your personal life, but know that we’re here for 12 hours with nothing to talk about. So the stuff you tell us will probably get repeated.” – Registered nurse
