Ok....another rant guys.
Is it too much to friggin' ask that staff not go in and out of rooms without knocking and/or identifying themselves...especially during a delivery. I was in a delivery early this morning. The woman was pushing, she's muslim and very private. In ten minutes time, while she was pushing, 4....yes 4 staff members walked in and out of the room for various reasons. I was livid!!!!!
After the delivery was over I went to the charge nurse and raised hell....she was one of the guilty ones to have walked in that room. She apologized and promised that that issue would get addressed. I told her this happened many times before. It's very distracting when women are going natural...it sometimes interrupts their 'zone'. But even simpler, it's basic common courtesy. Knock, wait for an answer, stayt behind the curtain and say what you need. It's not that hard!
