An Excerpt from It Was the Devil All Along
I was the only Black RN between all three shifts. Every time someone left, they would replace them with a white RN.
One morning I was sitting at the desk, writing my notes because my shift was about to end. The head nurse came in early and was standing in front of the desk in the hallway. The day shift was starting to come in, one of her favorites was Miss Perfume Factory. She always called her, her little daughter. She wasn’t little. She was coming down the hallway and saw a patient falling .She came all the way to the nurse’s station to say, “Somebody’s patient is falling out of the bed. You better go and see about him.
Oh boy, what a nurse. She passed right by the room, saw the patient falling, and kept going to tell someone to catch the patient. Well, when I said that out loud, the head nurse said, “Well somebody better get up and get the patient. If he falls, I’m writing you up.” She never said anything to her precious daughter, as she calls her, about walking by and not stopping to help the patient. So it was alright for her to see the patient falling and do nothing, but I was going to be the one written up if he actually fell. Something was wrong with this picture. I know she wanted me to get upset, but that time I kept my cool and just went and helped the patient back in bed.Related Links
