Two patients enter to seek treatment from you at the same time. One of them is rich, and the other is poor. Provide the different circumstances in which you would treat either patient first, and why.
While this question is probably answerable by those who are not in the medical profession, I think that perhaps those who are experienced would be able to provide me with a different perspective. #medicine -education #emergency-medicine #family-medicine #doctors-assistant -practice

As a health care worker, when is a time you had difficulty setting your feeling aside and became emotional in front of a patient?
I will be attending nursing school this Fall, but have been thinking a lot about being in difficult situations with patients. Do nurses really become desensitized to tragic events? I know it can be difficult to witness and see death all throughout your career but is there any time that it is acceptable to grieve with a patient, to an extent? I am an emotional person, but I'd like to believe that I can be stronger holding back my feelings when working as an RN. #medicine #nursing #healthcare #emergency-medicine #icu-nurse
