A story about evil nurses – and a precautionary tale if you have to go into hospital.
When I lived in Brooklyn, my best friend who I grew up with was a nurse. She is one of the kindest, most morally-grounded people I’ve ever known.
When she did her placement, she told me that the cruellest, most sadistic nurses in the hospital she worked in were put into the maternity and paediatrics departments.
I was shocked! After giving birth in Australian hospitals, however (until I was smart enough to birth a home – highly recommended!) I can see that to be the case.
