The other day I was sitting with a friend who talked about her experiences working as an operating room nurse. Her job was intense since worked in neurology--brain surgery! She told a story about a time when a patient died even though all of the medical taff did everything in their power to save the patient. After the surgery, she sat down and cried, sobbing. The surgeon came up to her and tried to comfort her saying that she did everything she could, that the patient had far too many complications to be able to survive the surgery, and that she was a good nurse.
