|The Great Importance Of Nurses! by davedozz(m): 3:17pm On Jun 20, 2012|
So many people, wil always ask me, "what's the difference between doctors and nurses?"
Now, it should be explicitly told that, doctors treat/manage the disease of the patient, while nurses treat/manage the patient as a whole!
Example: a patient comes to the hospital with malaria. All that matters to the doctor is attacking d malaria parasite & symptoms dat accompanies d malaria. While d nurse manages/corrects all other malfunction the patient came with. D nurse, does oral care, bedbath, tepid sponge(2reduce temperature), gives psychotherapy/ family therapy, serves attractive food, observe intake & output, ensure a proper wellbeing of patient i.e. Physical, social and mental welbeing. Nw 4d doctor 2be disease conscious is a gud tin. Bt we 4get dat d patient is a holistic being. Aside d disease condition dis patient has other dysfunction/issues dat d doctor never cares about but d nurse takes care off. Critically appraise.....
