That’s the rotation I’m going into in August and I can’t even imagine seeing any of my classmates treating any of the newborns that way.
And it’s sad that parents can’t trust the nursing staff to have the child’s/mom’s best interest at heart! I’m not a parent yet, but I already know me or my husband will be with our baby 24/7 in the hospital!
She was dismissed from that internship but she’s still graduating in June according to the second article. At my school, if you mess up your clinical (we don’t call them internships) then you have one chance to repeat and after that you are out. However, if you are incompetent and can’t handle taking care of a patient and you put them in harm’s way, they have the ability to dismiss you at that moment without a chance to repeat.

When I was in nursing school (keep in mind I graduated 6 years ago, so plenty of things could have changed) this would have been automatic dismisal from clinicals and you could attempt to retake the class the next year, but it was a small school and all of the teachers knew all of the students so the likelyhood of passing would be low. I know a lot of schools have gone to preceptorships, which is one on one with a practicing nurse. But regardless, you wouldn’t graduate with a nursing degree if you didn’t pass.

Yuck. She should not ever be allowed near a hospital/patient again. That kind of person doesn’t have a place in the medical field.

didn’t know you could do that! Great idea

Yeah that makes sense. We have a big school (well, compared to the other nursing schools in the area) but they still know who the students are. Like, they warned us last semester to not post on facebook about our patients because they would know. If you fail the second time, you don’t get a degree. At the time in the girl’s school career, if she had been at my school, she would have been under a preceptorship.
As for the article, it says she was in the internship in April and she’s graduating in June so I think she’s still in the program and still getting a degree? Maybe it’s different in China than it is in the US. I’m not sure. I just don’t understand how they could let her graduate in June after the stunt she pulled.

At my nursing school her happy butt would have been out of the program and unlikely to ever get into another. Luckily MOST nursing students aren’t that stupid. Gah. This is why people don’t let students in the rooms… Cause one idiot does something like this and suddenly nursing students are evil. I cannot believe that they are letting her finish!!

What a dumbass. I hope she’s not allowed to graduate.

WHo can do that to a baby?! What a sicko, that isn’t funny in the least. Its actually the exact opposite.
On another note though: Those babies are soooo friggen cute!!!

We were not allowed to have our phones on the floor…and on some more sensitive rotations (pedi LTC) our phones were taken from us to ensure patient confidentiality…with HIPAA in the U.S., this sort of thing is taken VERY seriously.

I’d like to see the parents press charges for child endangerment! Getting dismissed from her internship isn’t enough, she could have done life altering damage, or even fatally injured one of those babies– there is absolutely NO excuse for that!
