Exhausted Nurse’s Breaking Point At Breaking Point
AN exhausted nurse working at Tallaght hospital’s A&E department in Dublin is fast approaching the breaking point of her breaking point, WWN can exclusively reveal.
It is believed 35-year-old Maura Blythe had crashed through her initial breaking point in early 2005, after battling through the constant ineptitude of management and the lack of funding in order to offer patients the most basic care while doing the work of 4 nurses.
However, Maura chose to simply ignore the fact she had reached a devastating breaking point after being ground down by the inner workings of a broken HSE, instead preferring to float through the next 10 years of thankless work, refusing to acknowledge the huge pressures put upon her.
“It’s grand, I just have a good cry six, sometimes seven times a day. Then there’s my screaming breaking,” Maura said, alluding to the 7 minute break during her shift in which she screams into a pillow. “I find it’s a great relief to just let it all out.”
Maura’s breaking point may be avoided thanks to minister for health Leo Varadkar’s decision to implement measures curtailing overcrowding by cancelling elective surgeries at Cork University Hospital.
“I’m delighted, I’m sure that reduction in trolley numbers will look class written down in a newspaper, any chance of fixing this fucking hell,” Maura added, before taking a rare second screaming break in a single shift.
