Imagine a World Without Nurses


Imagine, if you can, a world without nurses. A healthcare system so debilitated it’s unrecognizable. When nurses disappear so does patient safety. Insist on safe nurse staffing levels. Because it’s our registered nurses who put the care in healthcare. (A TV Ad paid for by the California Nurses Association, National Nurses Organizing Committee, United American Nurses and Massachusetts Nursing Association)

Found this video on Facebook. Just during my last night shift, I had 7 patients. I wished I was able to give the best possible nursing care I could give to my patients, but there’s simply not enough time for each and every patient under my care.

I know that the hospital where I work in addresses this issue, but there are really just times that work overloads. And during these times, I pray a lot for my patients to be well and avoid complications during my shift.

I just wish that all nurses from across the world are given just the fair amount of workload, not because it’s fair for the nurses, but I believe, it’s for us to be fair with the patients.

Go, go, go nurses!

    Yun nga nakakapagtaka, I had some duty days when there was only 1 staff nurse at the ward. And it was a busy ward, what if there are two emergencies happening at the same time? Yung ironic pa dun, ayaw nila maghire ng nurses kahit may oversupply na, just because they have to pay extra for the salary.

    kung walang nurses, wala din magdo doctor if sa kanila lang lahat ang gawain….kaya may mga doctor dahil may mga nurses…
