it is nice to see that the nursing profession is getting support. Now that ever their is so much stress, Keeping after doctors as they are entering orders wrong in the computer, not addressing patients with Diabetes and other comorbidities on the surgical units I have been a nurse for 36 years.

This talk reminded me of the book "The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right" by Atul Gawande. At one point in the book, Dr. Gawande talked about a serious mistake he made while performing surgery and how he dealt with it. This talk was interesting and discussed important issues.

Excellent talk. It had me in tears as I was recalling a couple incidents that happened to me. One where I was going to resign and 2 where there were weeks before a groups was brought together to talk about what happened causing lost sleep, unneeded emotional turmoil for many people until it was addressed. We need to be more open about supporting our co workers esp since many are new RNs and may be still struggling. I know by I have helped one as she told me years later that she would have quit if I had not taken the time to talk with her.
