My mother (former RN, former head nurse in orthopedics at Evanston Hospital, later head of health care at a retirement home) would have been totally aghast at your behavior. Although you might not have known, since she’d be applauding so hard for you. (My mother had a very split view of patients, having been both staff and patient advocate at different times in her career. Oh, and she was an AWFUL patient.)
