I have no idea what the problem is with modern day nurses: possibly they are in it for the money rather than in it as a vocation; a lack of basic training such as being trained to be hands-on with patients, touch them, feel them, include changing a few bed pans in their university training, or giving a sponge bath to a few more patients; nurses appear to be tuned into WIIFM (what’s in it for me) more than into NURSING patients…too much time spent BS’ing  at the nurses stations or around computers that show vital signs but which cannot tell them when a patient needs to go to the bathroom or is desperately thirsty or is in pain. Sticking a drip full of morphine on your arm and telling you to just keep pumping any time you have pain is not nursing!!

The whole system is corrupt and needs a humanitarian overhaul !
