Microcosm of society.
I had worked with nurse “hair loss” for over a decade, having no idea she was a “Jeckyll/Hyde” until I overheard this exchange she had with another co-worker she was trying to recruit to care for her father post op.
I couldn’t believe my ears and short of an audio visual recording have no proof I heard what I heard. Over the years I have encountered professional jealousy, envy, career vindictiveness, and anger but “slit your throat” was a whole new category of whacko in my book: especially from a registered nurse. From that moment on, until her retirement, I gave nurse “Alopecia” a wide berth.
On a lighter more cheerful note…If you are lucky, you have what has recently become fewer and further in between….THAT GOOD SHIFT…the one that made you glad you became a nurse in the first place.
