Nurses are the middle class of the health industry. Both the admin and the patients extract the maximum productivity to their own advantage. They -the nurses- do the most work, pay the most taxes and support the high income earners (admin dependant on gov paychecks) and the patients (dependent on gov subsidized care). Food is a dispensible expenditure. Fun eh?

I can really inform you we are not having fun. Just wanted to do our job, but now we are not being able to do it as we have too much to do and not enough staff to do it.

That's much different than in the US. Nurses here make $30 + and tend to be paper shufflers. The lower wage earners (Nurse's Aids, LPNs, Surgical Techs, Medical Assistants, etc) are the one's that do all the work and get a fraction of the pay. I don't understand why someone would got to school for a year to work their ass off at 1/3 of the pay when they can go for two years, get more financial assistance for school, do a fraction of the work and get 3X the pay or more.

Seems it's a trickle down result of a really bad economy worldwide. In some public healthcare systems, pushing the drugs and saving money tend to become priority one.
Unfortunately the patients need for sustenance during treatment is often affected by cutting corners. Not enough staff, low quality food etc. all this is symptomatic of not enough money to run things like they should be.
I'm sure it's a drag to work in an understaffed healthcare facility.

hug.gif yeah I know, that "fun, eh?" was tongue-in-cheek. But the analogy stands, nurses bear the heaviest burden and responsibility for both the admin and the patients as does the middle class who bear the greatest tax burden for the corporate whores and the welfare recipients.

They are here too. A friend of mine, an RN, was offered a job in California, she took it. Very high pay, signing bonus, 6 month contract and extra to stay longer. She came back after 6 months and said it just wasn't nursing. In short, she returned to the stress and pressure to be a nurse. dunno.gif takes an extraordinary (smart, dedicated, caring) person to be a nurse and they have my absolute respect and admiration.
