- Better staffing and better nursing jobsTop of the list are these answers that we think go hand-in-hand:
“A job. Going 2 months strong being unemployed (currently living the dream of being a stay at home wife). When I was working: Adequate staffing.” – mogris, from reddit
“I second the ‘adequate staffing’. I’m a little worried that my Christmas night will be crushingly busy.” – CrossP, from reddit
“I’m in the same unemployment boat as you. It is not a fun ride. I just want to be someone’s nurse again.” – OkieDokieArtichokee, from reddit
“Better nurse to patient ratio!” – Lisa B., from Facebook
“Low census and adequate staffing” – nocturnalnurse, from reddit
When hospitals and other healthcare facilities don’t want to hire more nurses, then obviously there are fewer nursing jobs created. Meanwhile, the existing staff will have to bear a heavier workload.
- The right to die with dignity“Legalized euthanasia.” – Vilalintine, from reddit
After all, death shouldn’t be something to be afraid of. Controversial as this may sound, sometimes it is the better option for the patient.
- The company of family and friends, at home or even at workAll nurses want for Christmas is “to spend it with their families.” – Leslie C., from Facebook
“To not be pulled to another unit. I’m already away from my home family, don’t take me away from my work family too!” – FunkeeBananas, from reddit
“Word. Worst Christmas ever involved me and another nurse getting pulled to another unit, that nurse crying, my pod mate being a total bitch, and my two being patients sad, sad trainwrecks. Ugh.” – abermanlebt, from reddit
- The ability to not get tired“Feet that don’t hurt after 12hrs.” –Hottiemcgee, from reddit
5. A break during their shift or sometimes a break from nursing itself.
“A break…” – Nancy G., from Facebook
