is it just my experience or does almost every nurse or other support staff that works in or around the OR environment have an attitude problem? whether it be passive-aggressive or outright hostile. directed at med students of course because i guess they know they can get away with it. no matter how nice or u are to them it doesn't matter. what i have noticed is that they're almost all chubby, middle-aged women. which makes me think they realize they are well past their prime and their career revolves around handing instruments to surgeons and/or cleaning up the OR afterwards...which i guess builds up the resentment that they take out on med students.
