Every time a nurse has spoken to me, it's either "what did you do?!?!" or "stopping leaning on my door board." Today was the worst so far. My 5 year-old patient was screaming that her IV hurt, and when I told the nurse about it, she gave me this nasty rant about who's in charge. I was just shocked and felt like crap at that point, but when the intern came over to give me some comforting advice, my eyes teared up. I know it's not a big deal, but why do they get to be so abusive? I'm in general not an unpleasant or arrogant person, but I refuse to take some people's advice of sucking up to them to get them to behave like decent human beings. Apparently no one can do anything about this, and interns can have completely miserable nights on call from having to deal with bitchy nurses. The plan from now on is avoid them at all cost.
