CON­FES­SIONS OF A NURSE

Mon­day, 8.30pm, ABC2

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

This isn’t ER. This doc­u­men­tary fol­lows nurses and health pro­fes­sion­als but there are no life-sav­ing hero­ics – at least not in the first in­stal­ment.

In­stead it’s fill­ing in pa­per­work, jug­gling too many pa­tients and not enough beds, help­ing peo­ple get to the toi­let and clean­ing up when they don’t get there in time. For all that, the pay is lousy, there’s no time for a so­cial life and they are of­ten abused by the very peo­ple they are help­ing. This is no re­cruit­ment ad but an eye­opener on a tough pro­fes­sion.
