Confession Of A Nurse

Online: Yesterday


Healthcare workers said they've heard confessions ranging from murder, sexual encounters, serial killers and more. Every profession has its brand of horror stories of clients and customers, but it appears the healthcare workers working with elderly patients are the ones who've seen and heard it all. From murder confessions, sexual trysts, getting rid of abusive husbands, to serial killers, healthcare workers have heard it all. Elderly patients seeing out their final days are more likely to open up about their past as they tried to let go of their guilt.

She explains: "Some patients like to make nurses go out of their way to buy them their favourite food. So, to make my job easier, I would lightly touch the sensitive areas and quickly put it on for the patients," confesses Jenny.

But there are some patients who take advantage of the kind nature of nurses and even abuse them. She noticed how the colleague was uneasy when attending to the particular male patient and asked her about it.

The modern-day Florence Nightingale constantly faces verbal and physical abuse. The patient died that night. And if the nurses don't get them the food, they will sulk.

Recently, Jenny found out that one of her junior nurses had been harassed by a male patient who would call and send her text messages every day. She acceded to the patient's request and gave extra blankets to those who shared the same ward.
