@Oasis11 - I agree with what you are saying. I remember when I was having my daughter which was my first born, I was so scared and the nurse that was appointed to my room stayed with me the whole time.
She did not take care of any other patients. I couldn’t believe it because usually the nurses have several patients to attend to. I am sure that she spoke with the clinical nurse coordinator and was approved to stay with me.
This lady did everything for me and at times it seemed like she worked harder than the doctor. She had to make take my vital signs and keep track of how my labor was progressing. She was also my coach when it came time for my delivery.
I took a picture with her when I left the hospital because I could not believe the level of care that I received and never wanted to forget her. It is people like this that I hope stay in a nursing job forever, and never get into administrative positions because they are truly gifted when it comes to dealing with patients and we really need more nurses like this.
