Well, that's the way it was on the psych wards even the two I was in in Washington DC. My mom was in the hospital for her surgery in March and that was completly different. The surgeon even came in on a Sunday to see all her patients which is not the norm. I guess it all depends on which unit you are on.

I think the problem is that the psych nurses (and other nurses) are tired of the way things are going. They are overworked because the government will not allow hospitals to hire more. Low wages in Quebec as well.

Sometimes I think there should be an evergreen programme for psych nurses. That after so many years they should have to go on another unit because they become too uncaring. I would ask to talk to my nurse and she/he would act like I was bothering her. I remember once in Calgary I asked a nurse for a towel because I was going to have a shower. She told me that she wasn't my nurse, and that I would have to wait for my nurse. Sometimes they would give me towel and sometimes they wouldn't and it had nothing to do with being on any special sort of watch.
