“This isn’t a hotel! If you want a pillow, send your husband to Walmart!”

Just a little note, please don’t treat patients like this…

My wife was recently admitted to hospital and she was experiencing significant back pain.  On asking the nurse for another pillow to help with positioning the above was the nurse’s reply.  I understand people are stressed in the workplace, however, this really made us feel unwelcome and uncomfortable under her care.  Luckily the charge nurse was able to re-assign, but I’m sure in many cases that wouldn’t be able to happen.
