Quote From A Shift Somewhere

I'm too tired to remember where or when I heard this but......

Nurse: I wonder about those nurses who say they've never cried about a patient...
Nurse 2: Everyone's become attached at one point or another.

They have a point. People get attached. I've gotten attached.


...but what about those nurses who never get attached?

The others are either cold, heartless or liars. Everyone feels it when certain pts die, we are all human. I certainly feel it when all pts die, but most especially the children, the young, or the tragic.

Transference is inevitable. Don't let anyone tell you different. We all 'feel' and show emotions in a different way, but we ALL become attached to some degree. Some of us just don't admit it, or don't recognize it.
