17. if you actually worked in health care delivery, you'd know it's not a stretch
Behind the scenes is a war with ever changing factions. Administration versus delivery professionals. Doctors versus nurses. Everybody versus lab workers. Lab techs versus phlebotomists. Lab techs against lab techs. Pretty much everybody who makes a mistake -- and we are human and do make mistakes -- immediately starts setting somebody else up to blame. And the shit falls down. And that nurse knew now that she was down, the shit would always be landing on her.
That is why I am leaving the field with $30K in student loans to pay off, just 18 months after graduating summa cum laude from a grueling MLT program. In my 1st year, I was on a daily basis verbally abused, threatened, coerced and even deliberately set up by some co-walkers to be stalked by the brain-damaged, alcoholic, divorced janitor with a history of sexual harassment that used to work there. (He was fired after 9 months of harassing me, which peaked when he shoved me around the lab while one night while I was alone trying to result 3 critical patients.)
