If my words offend thee–look elsewhere.

Okay, I will probably offend anyone in the nursing profession. So if you like me, and you are or were in the nursing profession, don’t read today’s post.
We were forced to have a ‘nurse’ visit us yesterday. The Curmudgeon’s insurance company sent her. First, she was to arrive between 2 and 3 that was fine with me that’s when I am at my best. Then, she called asking if she could come earlier (between 12:30 and 1) because she had a couple of cancellations and we were her last appointment. Translation: She wanted to get this done early so she could go goof off the rest of the day.
Upon her early arrival before noon, she came in asking for his medication list, blasted questions at him so fast he missed them and I made her repeat the questions. She didn’t like that. Tough.
I then at one point asked her exactly how many MS patients she’d seen in her short life. (Yes, she was very young…and dumb.) She hadn’t seen more than one or two. Did she know that MS was different in almost every patient? What did she know about the medications he is on for his MS?
She wasn’t very bright and she didn’t think well on her feet at all. Sort of reminded me of another nurse…. I hope they don’t send her back for any reason or for that matter I hope they don’t ever send any other nurses who have no idea what MS is like.
You all have a good one.
