I was trying to think of something to blog about, and this idea came to me while I was walking into work yesterday. Health care workers are hypocrites. Seriously. As I walked into work yesterday, this is what I observed on the way to my unit.
Standing room only on a bus that transports employees about three blocks to work because people can't walk it
Respiratory therapists taking a smoke break outside
A overweight nurse carrying in donuts
A doctor driving without using a seat belt
Staff using an elevator to go up only one floor in the hospital
SERIOUSLY? C'mon. No wonder nurses get such a bad reputation! We are hypocrite! How can we expect our patients to do what is right when we don't? On the flip side, I am grateful for the job security that seems to be in place!
