Last week "20/20? brought you true confessions from waiters, salesmen, a porn star and more…but do you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at hospitals and medical offices? Here are three confessions from nurse-turned-author, Theresa Brown:
1. You may be surprised at what nurses call annoying doctors: "The night shift had a practice of picking out the Captain Douche bag of the month," Brown said.
2. Here's one way to get back at a downright mean doctor on the night shift: "When on call instead of leaving your number for a doctor to page you, we would leave the number of Pizza Hut or Jo's Bar or even a sexually transmitted disease clinic."
3. Nurses will not come right out and say your doctor is incompetent but if a nurse say's "You have the right to a second opinion," that can be code for "I don't like your doctor" or "I don't trust your doctor," according to Brown.
