|This is not my Godchild, but a random preemie. They don't start looking like real babies for a few weeks.|
I'm not going to drag this into a long and drawn-out story, but some people who work in hospitals do not deserve to take up space on the planet, much less to be employed as nurses in neonatal infant care units. I'll try to make this short and to the point.
My Aunt Jillian was taken in a wheelchair to see her baby in the NICU for the first time today. She and my new Godchild were transferred to a hospital with a higher level NICU just as a precaution. My uncle pushed her in to see the baby. She had scrubbed and was gloved. She was patting the baby, Camille, and talking to her.
A nurse said, "What a little doll!" to Jillian, then, not realizing that Jillian and Scott were both looking at her, turned to a fellow nurse and made an imitation gagging gesture. The other nurse laughed. Then they saw that Scott and Jillian were looking right at them. The "nurses" couldn't even come up with a phony explanation, so they just busied themselves with other tasks.
It really hurt my aunt's feelings. She knows that her baby is not a beauty at this point. It made her cry so much that she had a breathing issue and had to have an emergency breathing treatment. Jillian and the baby will be transferred to another hospital tomorrow.
When I reach the point in my career that I don't have to put up with garbage from incompetent nurses, I won't take that sort of $h!t from them.
