Question What is the strangest (nursing related) thing you have seen on TV

Just catching up on some recorded TV programmes today and on a UK hospital drama I have today witnessed a harpist playing in the middle of a hospital ward! Don't ask me why this was taking place, because I came in late to the episode although for some reason they had a private patient in the middle of the NHS ward and the two things might be related. But in all my years in nursing I have never seen such a sight really happen.

What is the strangest thing you have seen on TV which would never happen in real life?

Default Um.

Actually, we routinely have harpists, keyboardists and guitarists come play right in the middle of our units. They also play in the waiting rooms.

We have therapy dogs come too, twice a week. She normally takes them to other areas of the hospital, but she always checks in with us in ICU to see if we have any patients who would like a visit from the dogs.

And the staff always like visiting with the dogs So not far fetched!!

Anyone remember Trapper John, MD? The cute and buxom blonde nurse, referred to as "Ripples" in earlier episodes, always wore white heels with her uniforms. Get real, a floor nurse in heels?

Well I stand corrected then.

I think it's funny when I see TV nurses sitting around the nurses station chatting away without a care in the world. It will be a cold day in hell when the call lights are dead, the phone isn't ringing off the hook, and there isn't a ton of work that needs to be done.

Welcome to the board, Ian.

I guess the strangest thing that I notice on tv is how uninvolved the nurses are in patient care on most medical programs. Though er is about the only medical show that highlights nursing to any degree, technical parts not included on that one.. (I know, I know.. ) But we (as nurses) are one of the most important part of patient care out there, regardless of the patient's diagnosis. We are the ones who recognize the subtle changes that could be life altering, and so on. This to me is strange in that on tv, it would seem that the doctors are always at the bedside taking care of everything but the poop. At least they do get one thing right. But a doc always at or near the beside to any degree is from a far stretch of someone's imagination and gives patients false expectations upon admission.
