I am a male RN in California and this show is demeaning to all RNs nationwide. It potrayes not even close to the reality of what nurses go through. There was one scene were a MD calls a nurse dumb and puts her down. In reality the Md should have been called for and written up.
RNs in California do not tolerated these kind of behaviors, if a doctors ever calls an RN dumb or undeducted an RN will fight back. This is a bad show and makes nurses look bad. and It is not how it is in real life. RNs specially in CAlifornia with our nurses association are a big impact in healthcare. This show's writer needs to get educted on how nurses are or we (RNs) will do something about this show. RNs have so much impact on Pt Care. We don't just follow orders, we questioned it and make our own judgement, not just because the doctors order it and will give it, we evaluate and decide. RNs make a difference.
