-All the fake CPR. You know what I’m talking about.
I don’t want someone giving me sub-CPR just because they saw it on TV and think that’s the way to do it. Plus, no one is saying dramatic things like, “Come on! Don’t leave us!” It’s more like, “give another milligram of epinephrine.” It’s all business.
–Ethics. It’s like they don’t exist in these shows! People are breaking rules all the time, it is NOT like that.
–Crossing the Line. In nursing school, we were required to watch this video, “Crossing the Line,” about a nurse who grew too close to a patient. I think all of these TV characters need to watch it!
-Doctors don’t do everything. Emma brought up a really good point: “My biggest pet peeve about Grey’s Anatomy is the doctors doing everything a nurse would do. Would a doctor ever draw labs?! No. So annoying!”
In general, the nurses aren’t represented well in this show at all. I think out of the 9 seasons, there have been about two main characters who were nurses.
The BEST part about these shows is the back story: so-and-so is having weird symptoms- is it cancer or flesh-eating bacteria? I guess that’s why I keep going back.
