About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

  1. This doesn’t surprise me. I have two friends who quit nursing not just for the long hours but the overload of patients.

    • Nurses gathered power and prestige for a time, but we’ve lost our way and become complacent, scattered, weak as a group. We’re getting run over by the business types, as are docs. Hopefully, it won’t get much worse before we rally, rour loud enough to hear on Mars, and stand up for ourselves and our patients. I await our next Nightingale, and try to goad her into action. Most nurses play the role of the good sheep, hoping they’ll won’t get slaughtered today if they just keep their heads down…

  2. This is not surprising. Did two 17-18 hour shifts 2 weeks ago. Came home simply beat. Took 3 days of rest and sleep to simply recover !

  3. Makes sense. In manufacturing we saw a large drop in productivity and an increase in accidents between the 10-12 hour mark.
