Ladies I have a question and please be honest.  K had his 2 year check up today and he had a new nurse.  His previous nurse is terminally ill and will be missed.   I digress,  Before the doctor comes in the nurse takes his vitals and ask questions about his development.  K is onpoint and has reached all his milestones on or ahead of time.  While we were in there K was sitting on the floor quietly playing w/ his firetuck not making a sound.  So the nurse asked me could he talk and I said yes, well she made a face like yeah whatever.  So I said what's up with the face.  She rolled her eyes and said" Well he hasn't talked the whole time we were in here."  I explained to her that he has to be comfortable around a person in order for him to talk to that person.  So she said "It is ok to ask for help." I said no help is needed.  Then she started talking slowly to me saying " Talking    means  that  other  people can  understand   him  not  just you."  We have a speech pathologist.  I know the speech therapist and pathologist when K had a feeding tube.  I told her I no longer wish to speak to her.  K's ped. came in and asked what happened and I told her.   She was upset and called the nurse back in and said you will be reassigned to another doctor.  On the way out I heard her saying you can't help people and I complained and got her replaced.  Apparently she complained to K's doctor because she asked me what happened.  Poll included

The nurse seemed to have a bad attitude for whatever reason and you shouldn't have to deal with that. She was rude and pushy and if she did think there was an issue, she needs to approach the parent in a more gentle, positive way. She was out of line.

I would be, too. It was like she thought she knew your child better than you and didn't want to hear what you had to say. No need for her to be like that.

I can't even begin to see the nurse's side of things. You were definitely right in my opinion.

Christine I was so mad, to be honest I am just getting over it.

Once K knows you, you can't get him to be quiet.

Doc asked you what happened. . You told them. That isn't overreacting , that's answering the question. What doc decided to do with your account of the interaction is in no way your fault.

( and the nurse needs better sensitivity training .... Rolling your eyes at a parent ? Really? She's an idiot)

Be thankful she won't be in your room on the next visit. Good doc.
