Give Nurses More Credit
There’s nothing wrong with an entertaining show like Grey’s Anatomy but don’t take it literally. More often than not, medical shows like these tend to severely downplay the role of nurses at hospitals. It is a fictional show, after all, but it’s important for people to understand just what nurses actually do at work.
As this nurse says, most of what the doctors are seen doing on Grey’s is what nurses do regularly. Surgical residents are busy and they certainly don’t have time to sit and wait for a patient to poop out a Scrabble tile. Message received!
