Re: “Suspended St. Joe's nurses accused of over-sedating patients

I am appalled at how night shift nurses are being portrayed by this blog. Not all night shift nurses sit around with “down time” and play our guitar. Many of us have a work ethic and find things to do for our patients, like medicating post op patients pain, comforting the dying, and helping to bring new life into this world, not shopping on eBay. There is more to nursing “with in your unit” then medicating, feeding, and bathing! There are many things to be done that may seem menial to some people but how about wiping down equipment, reading charts, taking out the trash in the rooms. We need to remember that our job is our patients and not to come to work to be entertained. Since when has it become your employer’s duty to entertain the employee?
Without these patients we would have no jobs. All of us who work at the hospital have chosen to be in a line of work that is supposed to be committed to service. How are you serving patients by playing on the internet? It is well known that the ICU at St. Joe's does not allow visitors after 8pm, I ask why? I know patients need their rest but they need their family too. If you are doing your job right and just, why can’t some one sit with their sick mother or father at midnight? I think the five nurses who are on leave know what they did wrong. Maybe if they were finding things to do for their patients and not for them self’s they would not have gotten in trouble in the first place!
