We’ve taken the damage for some generations now without doing much about it, and without demanding anyone else do anything about it. It’s time we change that, don’t you think?

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. Ok I can see the need for comedy in nursing. Some in the loop of disasters have difficulty seeing a lot of humor in their situations. There are criminal activities that are sometimes simply not funny. However, there is still lots of room for humor.

    • Humor finds its place, especially in times of stress. I had a resident burn my facility to the ground once: all residents became homeless and lost everything including meds & records on a cold New England January morning. Later, in the midst of all our struggles, I told a manager, deadpan, ” I guess this counts as a bad day at work, huh?” She smirked. It helped a little.
