As a nurse, you have the full responsibility and authority with the bedside care to be given to your patients. Be firm but still be kind as you talk to them. We don’t have the luxury of time to spend on one patient not unless very sick and dying.
You can say, “Sorry, It’s not a priority at the moment, is there anything else you want me to do before I leave?”
Do I make any sense?
Whom shall I fear?
I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. Psalms 16:8 NLT
