She wishes Michael Scott was her nurse manager.

 

This was a very fun conversation and we talk at length about a popular post on her blog: “I Wish I Could Cry With You, But I Can’t“.  This post received over 250 comments with about 25% of people attacking her and calling her a “heartless nurse”.

I think Kati does a wonderful job depicting what real life is like as a nurse in this post.  We truly manage 1,000,000 conflicting tasks all at the same time.

Sometimes, I believe, not crying with a patients family is the BEST thing that you can do to provide them the support they need in these terrible times.   Take a minute and read the post here.
