visitors to hospitals

Aaaaaaaah I am getting so angry with people who visit friends, relatives in hospitals. I work in a very busy department where people are very sick ( critical care unit ). We have this very strict policy that visitors have to put gel and an apron on when visiting. This is to do with infection control. Nurses are humans not someone that takes abuse off the public. We do are best to make sure your loved ones are looked after to the best we can. Once again a young woman refused to take off her coat and put an apron on and gel her hands. I explained the reasons why she still refused so i said she could not come in. Well words came rolling off her tongue that I would not like to repeat. She threatened me and security threw her out of the hospital. When I left work she was in the car park. Again she threatened me but just by luck one of the doctors came up to me and saved me. He walked me to my car and then I left. I felt stupid because I just burst into tears.
I am home now and safe but just reflecting over it I do believe that she would have tryed to hurt me but Why I ask. ?

Bless you, "people" such as her are really not worth getting upset over, I know it's easier said than done, I'm sure I'd react in the same way as you.

Take care and keep your chin up :friends:

This is by no means an excuse for her to treat you like that but i imagine her and her family are under immense stress (i assume its like and icu unit where only immidiate family can visit) and different people deal with it in different ways, anger is a common outlet for stress.

Try not to let it get you down you were right and only doing your job, they would be the first to complain if their relative were to catch something becasue they hadnt followed the rules

I have an immense respect for nurses, especially doing such hard jobs as in the critical care unit.
She didn't have any right to act like that even though she may have been a bit clouded by worry/stress over her sick loved one.
Carry on the good work - you do a very special job and make such a difference to people and their families.

people like that should be charged - flouting rules of hospital - disrupting the peace and then threatening you - sounds like she was on a yobbos night out not visiting a hospital -

hope you are feeling better - if not angry - majority of people respect you in your job - dont let a shzzle like that upset you:thumbsup:

My mum went to a hospital recently and the security guard was responsible for getting you to adhere to the rules, it took the pressure off the staff and made people do as t hey were told. We thought at the time it was a great idea as he stood at the door anyway and most people wouldn't argue with a big, burly guard.

It's a sad world, we live in, when we need security guards at hospital doors.

Well done in standing up to this woman, you have done your job well and should be proud in what you done and hold your head high, all nurses should be praised more for what they do ( and better pay):thumbsup:

thats a horrid thing to have happened she is obviously scum. same as staff thou you get good and bad

Then again i have had bad experiences off some nurses/doc whilst being in hospital i know they are not all the same and im sure your a good nurse

i tried to complain when i had to have a d&c after a misscarridge last year when a heavily pregnant nurse was on duty and kept coming in to do blood pressure checks drip etc, i tried to ask as nicely as poss that i found it traumatisig having this particular nurse see to me and the other nurse told me that they were too busy and short staffed to worry about the little things like that.....NICE

ABSOLUTE DISGRACE AND NO REGARD FOR PATIENTS WELL BEING IMHO
