On Time Out

I hate to say this, but honestly, nurses (and doctors) are just humans and many are flawed. I also used to think anyone who can get through that much rigor and training must have themselves together. The facade is gone. Facts are that there are many nurses, doctors, and other medical professions who drive drunk, are found guilty of crimes (even murder), and do things that tend to shock the public. It's very sad.
Nurses mostly do work 12 hour shifts but those are not on the hour only. I've worked in hospitals where they shifts start at 7am, 9am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm, 9pm, 11pm. So, it's a possibility. Also, due to lots of mandatory overtime because of shortage they can be mandated to work an additional 4 hours. There are laws in place that allow nurses to work a total of 16 hours in a 24 hour period.
Have you read the charges up thread? It was absolutely pre meditated.I believe that normal distribution curve applies to any profession and any community. NL killed six people, but in no way was it premeditated. (Still, horrible). The nurse that stays in my mind is KK (K.Lee) from Kelsey Berreth case. That situation was premeditated, and prompts the question, “what the hell was she thinking?” (And professionally, she was good!)
But such situations are outliers. Most nurses are dealing with the same issues that we all are, money, living conditions, dating, marriages, kid issues. We can’t hold people to the highest personal standards because lives are not easy, and stressors are many. People make mistakes, but they are usually average mistakes. Same with doctors - once in a blue moon, we’d read about a doctor who killed his wife, but most people are average, and have normal lives, with “normal” mistakes and achievements. JMO.

i think maybe he was seeing her but it was serious in her mind and Germain was with his childrens mother.I am wondering if her telling people she "intended to marry" Germain Mason was so type of delusion.
At the time of his passing, his long term girlfriend was 3 months pregnant with their second child. Anything I have read indicates they were in a committed relationship. There is no mention anywhere of Nicole. I just don't think it's true.
narcissism and i know someone like this. is an MA but likes to tell ppl shes an RN.That’s my thought too — was she truthful or were some of these things delusions…..the masters in anesthesia, the DNP, her going to marry the Olympian guy, even the surgical tech thing — it’s possible she worked in the OR as a tech cleaning, stocking supplies etc, but I question if she had an additional degree and certification as a surgical tech, unless the process is different there. Maybe she’s the type of person who fabricates things or they’re really true in her mind.
I was married to someone like that - he lied about EVERYTHING literally down to how his name was spelled (!!!) and where he went to school but in his mind it was reality. I only bring that up to say, it’s not totally unheard of.
That is absolutely horrific!!! What is wrong with people?!!Here's another one that just happened in Chicago. Be warned, it's horrible
A horrific hit and run took place in Chicago this morning before the sun was even up, killing 3 men and leaving one hospitalized. The video is incredibly graphic and disturbing.www.tmz.com
