Grandma fled from a nasty nurse today.
People are the reasons for inhumanity in hospitals.
That’s quite a controversial statement. I guess people could make an existential difference too. At least, I know some who are trying hard to.
Most of them do, after my own notice, but one ot the indifferent or stressed out ones can make the difference for those who have to stay in that place.
I don’t think, the feeling of discomfort is caused by the size of the “machine”.
When I worked in a hospital many years ago, it was only one nurse on the station, which, when in service, made people feel intimidatet, be them patients or staff, others where warm persons their whole shifts long.
This is, what Iwanted to say.
I hear quite some bitterness; your experiences must have had quite some impact. I think your conclusion is correct. But it applies to all kinds of working places. (As long as the concerned person isn’t at an influential position, I can easily cope with it…). Concerning what happened yesterday in the hospital room of my mom – an extremely brutal and rather paranoid nurse (?) ordered me to delete a picture – the one of the hallway. Which I refused of course. But the impact of her brutality was so huge on my mom and on another patient. I could only cope with this experience by making this diptych. The potentially dominant position of this nurse (?) makes us vulnerable, anyhow.
Agree with the working-places, and I can easily imagine the scene. Hope, your mom and others will not have to be too much with this nurse or auxiliary personnel. This is the kind of experiences I was talking about. My job years ago, when I was a student, was in a catholic hospital with half nuns and half accessory “civil” staff – the hardest characters were those who had to love by religion …
Catholic, nuns,…. in Flanders we know this species 🙂 (I only know one exception to this rule – she works in Indonesia and does a wonderful job.)
Furthermore I feel daily blessed since I dropped my catholic past. And replaced it by an evangelical way of life.
It’s the way one goes through life that counts, not what is aimed by beliefs afterwards.
