Nurses are Not Around to Wait on You
It’s downright crazy how many patients assume that nurses are their personal butlers and waiters. A lot of hospitals have a kitchen that will tailor-make meals for patients depending on their needs and requirements. They’re usually expected to order their own food after talking to the dietician but most still expect a nurse to deliver their meals to them.
As this nurse pointed out, her patient was literally confused when she asked them if they had asked for their meal. It’s high time people learn that nurses are professionals trained to save your life not serve you your food.
