friggen asshole, he prob just hated his job and running after them etc. My Mum and sister are nurses and both have done stints in nursing homes. Both went back to hospitals as the elderly really take some extra looking after and can become a bit bitter at the nurses. My sister said they are hard to look after if they are are totally gone as well, cause you really have to do everything for them where as most hospital patients are more coherent and will do as they are told a bit more than the older ones. That being said, they certainly don't deserve any less respect or anything, this jerk is just a psycho basted.
