Real Doctor Reacts to NURSE JACKIE | Medical Drama Review | Doctor Mike

  • Published on Jan 13, 2019
  • This one is for all those nurses out there that requested I check out this show. I had no idea what I was getting myself into as Nurse Jackie is a very fresh character. I do think that when a show is raw like that it makes for a great medical drama review
    I want to watch more of this show so please hit me with some episodes that you really like from the first/second season as I want to watch it in some sort of reasonable order.
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches Nurse Jackie / Real Doctor Reacts to Nurse Jackie. If you want me to continue making this doctor reaction video please give it a like and leave me a comment on which tv drama or show you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

    I've been in and out of Hospitals quite a bit and I can testify that it is indeed quite common to hear people screaming like a madman, at times for something that doesn't even seem serious. However, I do find this to be the case mostly with elders.

    YES! MORE NURSE JACKIE!!! And it is funny you bring up the Pyxis because in Season 1 Episode 11, episode titled- Pill-O-Matix, of Nurse Jackie, the entire episode is revolved around the pyxis and how jackie can continue her drug use with the pyxis and how she can sabatoge the plans for getting the Pyxis. Seriously, so good! Keep em comin ! Love your work Dr

    I love you so much. Nurse Jackie was one of my favorite shows I relate so much to her ppl though I was a saint and I was doing horrible things (drugs) and when everything feel apart and things came to light it was like her situation and I really like the show she's a great person just is in pain and doesn't know how to cope.

    Those red "pills" were granules usually contained inside gelcaps. Jackie opened and dumped out the gelcaps to get to the medication out to snort it to make it act faster in her system. Normally the gelcap delays delivery until stomach acid or intestinal enzymes break down the gelcap.

    The “near miss” scenario is also used at other places and should be implemented everywhere. Anyone can report something before an accident happens. I work in a warehouse and we take stuff like near misses seriously; like falling palettes, forklifts malfunctioning etc. Side note: my mother is a nurse and could have became a doctor just she didn’t because she had three kids, I’m the third and didn’t have time to do more school. So she regularly tried to voice her opinion when a doctor, occasionally, gets an ego and sometimes messes up. She says doctors just don’t like being called out by nurses, which is an issue in the hospital. Didn’t know if any other hospitals have this problem either but so far a few other nurses have suggested that it is.

  • NickyKaylee

    I'm 20 years old, and I have had chronic pain in my right hand for about three years now after having some Bones crushed (I also have a pretty servere case of Ehlers Danlos which we found out a month ago). I have been on oxycodon and oxycontin and its not right how easily it was for me to get refills. My surgeon used to prescribe them, however he never gave me more then like a month because of addiction risks with my age and after wanting to wait to operate (because my last resort was cutting through a tendon, making my hand paralysed although pain free) he sent me to painclinic where they gave me the oxycodon and even diazepam so easily that I was actually shocked. Ofcourse I was very happy but because it is so easily accesible I noticed that I began taking it for granted and taking the maximum dosage every Day because I knew I could get more so easily, and then after my dad noticed how quickly I went through Them I got so scared because I didn't even notice how much I was taking. I very gratefull that my pain is taken so seriously, however I also Think, that even with my high level of pain they should have been more cautious with giving out oxycodon and all those opiods. Its horrible how many people get addicted and how easily when You say: "I have pain, i can't sleep and I cannot focus." You get opiods. Again, so very gratefull for all my doctors, therapists, and surgeons for taking it so seriously, it just scares me, how close I was to being dependant on opiods, as a 20 year old. I wish more doctors like You would talk about the opiod crisis, and hope that your videos Will raise more awareness!

    I spent my 19th birthday at my best friend's funeral. She died of an overdose at a party I wasn't at. I was one of the only ones of the friends group who could attend because it turned out that the drugs that had been there were not the illegal kind, but legal pharmaceuticals illegally obtained and distributed, so all the kids there were strictly forbidden to meet during the investigation. I think it ended up sending at least two doctors to prison.
    So I'm glad that the overprescription, the distribution and the necessity of those drugs is looked at much more closely nowadays.
    Medical professionals are humans too. They can become addicts. They can be misguided in prescribing more than someone needs. They can be criminal monsters who opt to make money and knowingly prescribe drugs that aren't needed.
    So it's important to have a system that checks itself.
    In my country, the opioid crisis is NOTHING compared to what it is in the US. And yet... She was just 18. And is just one amongst many.

    Dude it’s the inside of a capsule. When a patient is prescribed a med and they have to have their meds crushed (cause of mental issues or airway issues) pills get crushed into powder and capsules get broken open to be able to ingest. It is not generally used because the capsule is mainly intended as a way to protect the medication so that it takes longer for the systemic effect to take place so crushing them they have to be careful with the orders to not overdose or change what meds they are being prescribed.

    hey hey since you worked in the E.R for a long time, I would be totally keen on you checking out an episode that focuses more on Dr. Lim who is the trauma surgeon. For example season 1 episode 6 would be interesting because it's about a mass casualty coming into the E.R.
