I work as a healthcare professional and I can't stand when family members of patients are overly concerned and overly protective and extremely controlling in their loved one's care, to the point that it interferes with care and family interaction. I understand that you may have had bad experiences with the healthcare system but please don't take it out on the nurses, doctors and other professionals who are only helping your loved ones recover. We work in the best interests of the patient. Nurses are humans too and don't have multiple arms and legs to provide care all at once. Please don't tell medical professionals how to do their job or ask why a test is taking so long. We don't have control over the "system" and the "politics", so please be patient. If you have serious complaints, then you should really consider who you vote for and where your tax money is going towards, and be grateful we actually have a healthcare system that's not charging you for your hospital stay plus all the other equipment, services and materials we use on a daily basis.
