No on 90% of all French nurses, one was nasty.

Don't derail this thread which is very important to me as I go under tomorrow morning.

Well what do you mean by poor treatment?

I remember!! Well I wasn't assaulted nor denied of treatment. My origins, languages or citizenship weren't at all the reasons of the poor treatment received by that nurse.

Re: Nurses in hospital

Well in post 6 she said: "Well I wasn't assaulted nor denied of treatment." Not getting pain killers would come in the category of "refused treatment ".And if she was refused painkillers then its better to talk with the doctor in charge

This is irrelevant to the thread. I asked If i can refuse treatment from a specific nurse, yes or no.

Of course.

Depending on the Kanton (its laws), the hospital and whether the medical doctor is a hospital employee or what's called a Belegarzt (basically a freelancer who uses hospital infrastructure) you typically either have a single contract with the hospital, or two contracts with the hospital and the doctor, respectively. In both cases the nurses act on the doctor's instructions, under his/her supervision and authority. If you want to add the condition to the contract(s) that you want no contact at all with nurse XYZ that's entirely your decision, just make sure the doctor is aware.

Plus, not honoring your instruction may well negatively affect the treatment's effectiveness and success. Hence it's in the doctor's/hospital's own best interest to heed your instruction.

So make sure your doctor knows about that (preferably when making the appointment as it may affect shift planning) and you're done - at least in theory, in practice it won't hurt to remind him/her tomorrow at least once, perhaps get his signature confirming your instruction if you think it's worth taking that extra step though that seems a bit excessive.

Re: Nurses in hospital

@Nil
some patients like to have visitors while they're in hospital, others don't.

If you like receving visitors, then try to max out their presence for the entire permissible visiting hours. Even if you might not want to talk to them all the time (or that might not be appropriate for your room-mate co-patients), they can just sit there and read. Their being there may well diminish the likelihood of that specific nurse, or indeed anyone else, being rude to you or refusing you the care you need.

If you don't like receiving visitors, and if you know the kind of people who can read or work on their laptop, you could ask them to encamp themselves in the hospital cafeteria just to be on call by you. I once did this for a friend who didn't want to be seen while he was moaning in pain. During the many hours of my hospital presence, twice he actually sent for me, once to fight on his behalf. For the rest of the time, I got a lot of work done, and he felt better just knowing I was there. I've also had someone do this for me, who was willing to be around for me, but really couldn't afford all the time to sit and talk to me: he needed to work, but was there when I called.

Edit: Sorry, my post is not exactly about whether or not you could refuse treatment by a specific nurse. I think you can. My suggestions here are about ways to manage things in case a flat refusal by you is not respected instantly.

I like to receive visitors but never long exactly to not bother the roommate. I don't know if nurses shifts change but I remember she was on the night shift.

Re: Nurses in hospital

Problem solved for me, surgery canceled. And it doesn't seem like I will need one! 😂😂😂

Anyway, the topic is still good for anyone who might have some issues in a situation of care in hospital stay.
