The crazies are EVERYWHERE!!

A little background...Ive been in the hospital now for a couple of days with Covid and blood clots in my lungs...fun times...anyhow, my new nurse this morning came into my room and first thing she says is "So did Trump win the election?"...I responded, "ummm...no.." Then she says " Have you heard of the new world order? You know that Biden is the leader of a pedophile sex traficing ring and the truth will soon come out and Trump will once again be our president"....Im like GREAT!! I have a Qanon nutjob in charge of my well being!! I diddnt even respond, I wanted her out of my room as fast as humanly possible. WTF??

1. I'm sorry you're ill, hope you get better and out of there soon -

and the last thing you need is that kind of aggravation. You might want to ask a nursing supervisor to tell this nurse not to share her crackpot political notions with you because it's causing stress and making your recovery more difficult.

5. Get her name and document this harassment, if you can.

Write down the time and date and what she said to you. You might even record her, if that's legal. Don't initiate any political conversation and don't feed it - if she demands an answer from you just say something like, "I don't know" or "I'm not sure". Then once you're home safe and sound, file a complaint.

The license means nothing when it comes to tact, skill and experience. RN degrees can be had from an associate degree community college and not everyone becomes a nurse for the right reasons. I gave up nursing after an injury and became a computer analyst. I still miss healthcare after many years.

13. Be careful in your response...

There is not a good option in situations like this.

1) You could ask for a different nurse, but that may not be possible because of staff that is already over-taxed.

2) You could file a complaint, but you risk retaliation while you are vulnerable.

3) I would avoid all political conversation, and if she keeps digging you, just say "I don't know too much about that stuff".

4) Any action you take should be done once you have recovered and left the hospital.

Best wishes to you...I hope you improve quickly!

16. Tell her the real conspiracy...

...is far more complex.

Trump and Epstein ran a pedophile cult that has disgusting photos of all the global elite having sex with children and animals.

Trump is such a genius that he is running the world using blackmail to usher in the New World Order.

That is why he praised Ghislane Maxwell. That is why Epstein was murdered in his cell. Trump is calling the shots and he is trying to "clear the field" before he springs his ultimate trap and assumes the role of Global Emperor!

Trump is Q. Q stands for Quisling. He is the head of the Ultra-deep state, a billionaire who is finally springing the trap set by the wealthiest 10 families including the Queen of England and the Rothschilds. That is why he let the pandemic get out of control. It was the global elite's attempt to wipe out a significant portion of humanity.

Putting children in cages was the dress rehearsal for what is to come.

Soon 90% of everyone on earth will either be dead from the next super-virus (this was just a dress rehearsal) or be locked in cages at Trump re-education camps. The mind control experiment was a great success.

NOW IT IS TIME FOR PHASE II

18. As a patient, you shouldn't have to trust that

nursing staff charged with making the life and death decisions that affect your survival can't even separate fiction from non fiction. She should never be allowed back in your room or have anything to do with your care.

Get aggressive in your own healthcare decisions. That nurse should not be around any patients, spewing out her political opinions and berating her patients who are too ill to object.

Ask to speak to the Nursing Supervisor, don't settle on anyone less, (trust me, I was an RN for 30 years) and file a formal complaint because of the distress that nurse caused you in proselytizing her political views and ridiculing yours. She clearly made you so upset it's affected your wellbeing. You cannot trust that she is capable of making sound judgements due to her belief in unfounded conspiracy theories and her alternate reality.

21. Squidly....I'm with what LuckyCharms suggested on this one..

First of all, I'm so sorry you're sick and in this situation. I hope you get well and out of there soon....

I was in a situation a couple of years ago where the owner of the company was a trumpster big time. It wasn't uncommon for him to out of the blue bring up politics, slam the Democrats, etc. He'd say things like "that jerk Chuck Shumer..." and I'd say are you talking about a relative of Amy Schumer the comedian? When he'd start to elaborate I'd say time and time again that I stay out of politics and didn't know what he was referring to. It seems like with this nurse you could just act like you're unaware.

These people are truly CRAZY and it seems better to stay out of harms way until you're out and then report her.

Peace to you and once again, I hope you get better really soon.....

covered up. Copy hospital administrator if you can. This behavior is not acceptable. You should have been provided an informational packet regarding patient's rights sometime during or soon after the admission process. How to report a complaint is in it.
There may even be a patient advocate at the hospital who will assist you.

It's hard to believe that any nurse, no matter what her political views, would ever walk into a hospital room and spurt out something like that. Even if a patient was tatted with "Fuck Trump" on their forehead I highly doubt that any nurse would ever come out with something like that unless he or she wanted to jeopardize their career.

Now, if you are feeling up to it and want to grind that moran's gears a little, some suggested things to mutter while she is in earshot:

1) I am so tired of getting these smoothies made with 3-yearolds goddamn it! I told them I wanted 1 year and under, or its too stringy...

2) (Prentend phone call, sotto voce): "I'm not free to discuss the maneuvers now, you'll have to call me back when she is not so near-by...and please tell George I appreciate the check for voting Democrat Party this time, the money is really helping now..."

3) (Second fake phone call, also sotto voce): "Well, that was why I told Hillary that we needed to expand from pizza deliveries to taco trucks. The trucks can keep moving and its so easy to lose these MAGA fools when they are tailing you..."

4) Ask a visitor in a loud voice if they "Got rid of that box of stolen ballots" yet; and remind them to burn them so no one can find the ones that said 'Rump-Trey' on them...

But above else, please take care of your health (and I hope the light-hearted reply gives you at least a grin today!)

53. The crazies are EVERYWHERE!!

Do not put up with this; report this nurse to their supervisor. Under no means should the nurse have been giving their political opinion to someone who is suffering from Covid-19 in any hospital period. This person is apparently mentally ill and should not be working in any hospital as they could be dangerous to others. I guess they believe Covid-19 isn't real too!

57. Bringing up political things is completely inappropriate.

It would be equally inappropriate were she to have said something like, "It's past time for Trump to succeed and the transition begin."

58. Report her. Get dates and times. She's a hazard to the patients.

60. There should be a number to call a hospital liaison.

This nurse's behavior is unprofessional and calls into question her judgement. Consider contacting a patient services representative. There should be a phone number where you can contact somebody with a concern about your care.

You shouldn't have to put up with this. I hate to hear this.

64. Aside from the fact that discussing politics in a healthcare setting is totally unprofessional, IMO

70. Be REALLY careful to get the right medication for the lung clots

Those are not to be trifled with. You're on heavy-duty blood thinners, right?

82. GOOD!!

A friend of ours died suddenly 2 months ago because she was released from the hospital, and they forgot to give her blood thinners. Her husband told us she felt a pain in her leg in the afternoon after being released from the hospital for a minor procedure. They called the hospital, who said to call them again if it got worse. She never got the chance, as she was gone less than an hour later due to clots in her lungs.

GET THE MEDICATION, and take it. I had a couple of heart issues several years back. I hated the nose bleeds those things caused, but at least I'm still here to complain about it. Make sure you get them for a few months at least (I was on them for a year, still take aspirin daily).

71. Maybe wait until your are discharged but I'd report that to the hospital

I seriously doubt they want their nurses to be talking politics, especially right-wing nut-job politics. What else does this nurse believe? Is Covid-19 even a real thing? Does injecting bleach help? Light inside the body? It's dangerous, so I'd report it and make a complaint.

72. This doesn't sound like anything a professional nurse would ever say

Perhaps she was yanking your chain, to see if you would respond? Even still it's completely unprofessional. Maybe she's some loco nutjob impersonating a nurse?

I'm out of ideas.

74. In the past, one of the questions medical staff would ask patients to see if they were coherent

was "who is the president of the United States?" They'd ask other, super-basic questions such as "Do you know where you are?" and "What is today's date?".

I've heard that since Trump, medical professionals stopped asking the POTUS question--too stressful for the patients.

75. ...and she graduated from a college!

That's what amazes me the most. I can understand some lush at the end of the bar down at the Hole In The Wall being seduced by Trump and his conspiracies, after all, he's been running the country just as they would. But when someone who lives in a $200k home and graduated from an esteemed university spouts the same nonsense it makes me wonder if I'm the crazy one.

79. Amazingly enough...

I had the same thing happen to me during my recovery from the quad bypass. One overnight nurse came in and basically started spewing the same crap at me. Not the pedophile part, but other things just as insane. I mentioned that she should not believe everything she reads on the internet, and she responded that she did not get it from the internet, but from publications that are well known to be just as crazy. I had to mention it to the morning nurse, and she was a bit stunned. Suffice to say, I did not see that nurse again thanks to the morning shift basically putting in a request to not have that nurse tend to myself. I was very grateful for that!
