Here are some other options:
- ask her name and if she asks why, say you want to enquire on her behalf to see if there is any 'mental illness sensitivity training' for nursing staff.
- Ask her again what the plans are to get the meds. If she is rude again say "I wonder if you would be so flippant if the hospital ran out of a diabetics medication. Mental illness is an illness, not a con.. That's why it's called mental illness..."
- set her up on a hot date with the tea lady
- tell her not to worry if its too much trouble for her you'll just call your friend Ray Hadley for advice (I hope you know who Ray is!)
- Say to the cow "I'm sorry if you're having a rough day too, I know what that feels like" (she'll probably be a stunned mullet!)
- tell the nurse if you wanted to sit on your **** and not get treatment you would have stayed at home.
- you could shock the cow with some reality. Eg say "do you know a few nights ago things were so bad for me I did XYZ.." She might be embarrassed enough to apologise.
How longs before you are transferred??

Some days I think we should send VP in to deal with frackwits like that nurse. I dont think shed have as much (or anything) to say after being dealt with by her.
Hugs, Ffrenchie. You aren't a waste of space. Where you were this morning, keep hold of that feeling in your mind and on the inside bit where you feel warm fuzzies and use it to keep negative asshats at bay. You are sick, you're getting help though. Don't let her shame you into thinking otherwise.
And tell your psychiatrist. Even if you don't know her name, it's on file and she will be dealt with.

VicPark your imagination is awesome. Now to just print it off and send it to the nurse.
Ffrenchie I'm sorry the mean old bat on the power trip ruined your day.

People like her are why mental illness isn't taken seriously!
You deserve better. You are not there because you were bored amd had nothing better to do. I feel angry on your behalf and can't wait until you are tranferred. Hopefully they will be better trained!

As far as I can tell frenchie is in a general ward, with general nurses. General nurses have no specific training in mental illness, in fact if she was an older lady she probably wouldn't have had any mental health training at all. So this situation isn't a reflection on mental health services, it does however highlight the ignorance and hatred some general nurses have about mental illness.
I'm a mental health nurse, so felt the need to stand up for my people!

I agree, I'm an ed nurse and I've never met psych services who aren't compassionate and understanding - it's there job. General nurses however are very hit and miss and unfortunately some aren't particularly 'educated' on mental health. Not right but often the case
