#18 - Medical TV Shows
Listen now
How realistic are medical TV shows? If you work in healthcare, you know some shows totally get it wrong! This week is all about medical tv shows and my perspective as a nurse. To start, I’m sharing my favorite thing this week- the MealTime app! It’s helping me use more seasonings than salt and pepper. Unfortunately my first meal didn’t go over so well with Brett’s stomach. Then, I dive into some of the most popular medical tv shows over the years. I’m sharing which nursing show I think is a total flop, and I’m quizzing my husband on the accuracy of popular shows based on the responses from doctors and nurses. I go in depth on Nurse Jackie and the reactions from real healthcare workers. Some people think the show negatively impacted the public perception of nurses. Did the show portray nurses in a bad light? Does the general public’s opinion on nurses really matter? I’m being candid about my thoughts. Shoutout to Nurse Bokhee for being featured in all 17 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy! This was a really fun episode and I hope you all enjoy it. To close out we read shoutouts submitted on my website nurseblake.com/podcast. Each week we will take on a new nursing topic and bring up questions and stories submitted by our listeners.
