I've never made any requests of that nature. I don't care what they believe, what sex they are, or what they look like as long as they provide good care.
I demanded that a charge nurse have no contact with my son once while he was in ICU.
ETA** It was on the basis that she was an idiot
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
Quoting krysstizzle:I've never made any requests of that nature. I don't care what they believe, what sex they are, or what they look like as long as they provide good care.
The closest I came to any demands in the hospital was that they keep my grandmother, who was a volunteer, out of my room when I was in labor with my son.
I couldn't handle it lol.
I had a request that a specific dr not touch me or my baby while I was in labor. I didn't like her for many reasons but none of them had to do with her race.religiion but more so how she came off to me. The request was granted. I got a dr I loved super sweet older gentlement.
At the OB office, yes. In the OB office there were 3 doctors, one was my primary doctor. I went through my first pregnancy with her, I didn't like her at all, I was young and it was my first pregnancy she was very rude. She didn't end up delivering DD1, another doctor did. When I got pregnant the second time, I requested the doctor who delivered DD1 to be my primary, my request was granted, she delivered DD2 as well
I never have, but after Emma was born my husband asked that the nurse be re-assigned. I was still in an incredible amount of pain "down there" and this nurse acted like I was annoying her and just looking for pain meds, like I was a drug addict or something. She kept asking me what I thought was wrong. Like I would know. I don't know. It just hurts like an SOB. Finally, when she'd given me all the Tylenol with codine that she could, she snapped at me that she would need to call my doctor back into the hospital to check me out...and was I sure that was really necessary because she was at home. My DH said, "You do that. Call her. Then don't you come back in here -- find another nurse for my wife -- or we will have problems." The doctor showed up about 20 minutes later and it turned out I had a vaginal hematoma that was about to burst. They rushed me into emergency surgery. I was in excruciating, unnecessary pain for hours because this nurse was just a bitch.
