Nursing Raw and Uncut


Stella Joseph - 2014
    Have you ever wondered what nurses do behind closed curtains? Nursing has evolved from the abstract image of its predecessors wearing the perfect cap atop a perfectly shaped bun. This unveiling will give you a glimpse into their world. From their perspective. It doesn’t always match the vision of Florence Nightingale sitting and praying over the patient for a speedy recovery. What you will discover in this true account may shock some, and enlighten many—whether it’s about the nurses who have to protect themselves from that angry patient throwing unmentionables at them, or the ones being threatened by the use of excrements as a weapon. Health care is changing at a rapid speed that only CEO’s can keep up with. Bedside nursing has gone beyond the bounds of possibility. The many tasks and activities—along with increased acuity’s—creates an insurmountable work load. Nurses are a unique group, not divided by race, age, or religion. We are united by our humanity, and it takes a special disposition to fulfill this calling.
