First of all is the "night shift". Second is the "errors", as human being we are subject to commit to error. But as a nurse working in a hospital, it should be "zero error" as much as possible because you are dealing with someone's life. The feeling that you came from a night shift, phone rang and when you pick it up, you committed an error. I can't even sleep thinking of it over and over again. But thank God I haven't commit very serious errors.

Yes, we are not perfect therefore mistakes are really unavoidable. Even nurses and doctors commit mistakes. That is one of the reasons why I don't like working in the hospital. I am sometimes clumsy and have this memory laps that I forget the right thing to do when an intervention or a procedure is being done. I also don't like working night shift because hospitals gives me a creepy feeling when most of the patients are sleeping.

And the worst thing is when the doctor commit a mistake and blame it to the nurse. Some doctors have that big pride, and can't admit to themselves that they too can commit mistakes.

What I hate most in working in the hospital is that you have too many superiors. You are confused on who are the people that you will follow.

You are right crazy... the other superior would say this and that and the other would say the opposite. It's so confusing.

I think that the errors are the worst thing about working in a hospital. In other jobs your error might also have consequences and you lose money or customers if you made errors, but those errors are different from the errors that you make when you work in a hospital. At the hospital your errors could have very serious consequences for other people, and that makes me worried about the errors. Fortunately I csn say the same thing as you, I have never made any serious errors in my job. The night shift doesn't bother me much probably because I have become used to working at night.

Night shift is my primary problem because I can't hardly sleep at daytime 4hours is the maximum but it seldom happened. The usual was 2-3. I've been in a night shift duties 6 days a week for more or less 3 years. Good thing I'm not working in the hospital anymore.

When I was still working in a private hospital, I really don't like to stay longer in ICU. I just feel their pain and sufferings whatever the ailments are. You are right, working in a hospital and providing health care should be well-calculated. There will be no wrong or even mistakes upon executing the treatment regimen. If you do, this will be a big issue concerning the welfare of the patient and you as a practitioner.

The patients who can not comprehend the situation, especially the loved ones. They are so delicate compared to the sick patient.
