    I am appalled by the stigmatisation/ageism and general lack of respect shown in these so called humour . Dipers are for babies, Demented is derogatory, they are terms which we really should not be using. Hitting ?????why because a patient is afraid and frightened and lashes out because of poor communication and unmet nursing needs. This is not humour .

    I have been a nurse for well over 30 years now. For the past 18 years I have worked as an Advanced Practice Nurse– I am presently working in a very stressful work environment. I work in a Forensic Prison setting with a variety of patients– some are mentally ill- most are anti-social- psychopaths- and many have borderline personality disorder. If I didn’t use humor at work as a coping mechanism I probably would be suicidal most days. I find it is best to smile every day– tell a joke or two with a fellow co-worker. Go to the gym as much as possible– and always– always== remember that ” Laughter is the best Medicine”
    Health care has changed and unless we find ways to deal with the negative impact it can have on us– burn out will claim too many of us. LAUGH ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    30 minute lunch break????? Who the hell has a 30 minute lunch break. I have been a nurse for over 20 years and do not remember when I have had an uninterrupted lunch break.
