Don't Waste Time Arguing with an Inflexible Nurse
If your problem is serious enough that your doctor sends you to the hospital, you may find yourself butting heads with a staff member. This is what happened to CNN's Cohen immediately after the birth of her third daughter, who faced serious medical issues. A NICU nurse insisted on continuing to treat the baby with procedures that the doctor had prescribed, not knowing that the doctor subsequently informed Cohen that the treatment was no longer necessary. Fortunately, another nurse stepped in, but Cohen says she's since learned better ways to handle situations like these.
