What I Found On My Desk

A brochure for scrubs. Because every nurse wants to be like the nurses on Grey’s Anatomy, i.e stupid and/or bitchy handmaidens props who exist to demonstrate physician superiority.

And into the trash it goes.

    Are there even any nurses on Grey’s anatomy? I mean, who needs a nurse when a resident starts an IV, draws blood, runs their own MRI machines, takes care of enemas, sit by patients’ bedsides… etc… Oh, yes… I do recall one episode this season where a resident brought cupcakes for a physician party and another physician said to resident…. “what? Store cupcakes? This is not a party for some nurse who got knocked up because she couldn’t keep her legs together!”
    I hate that show and others who trivialize nursing. (Great book on nurses and media – http://books.google.com/books?id=iH0SYPRIAe8C&pg=PA285&dq=Sommers+AND+media+AND+nursing&hl=en&ei=cMwYTd_SCaDenQfO0b2TDg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CCcQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false )

    Did you notice how the nurses in the add just smile and shake presents and eat chocolate? That is all nurses really do anyway. (…oh, that and nurses also only work to find some physician to marry them so they will not have to work.)

    I know I ALWAYS put on my scrubs to eat chocolates and open presents. Don’t you?
