Sprout, I just reread your post. If you weren't knowledgable yourself, and the doctor hadn't explained why no antibiotics, her statement to any other parent who wasn't as knowledgeable, could have left them feeling less than confident in the doctors diagnosis and recommendations. Definitely report her. All she was supposed to do was relay (what you already knew) the doctors recommendations. Her remarks went beyond the scope of her job. Unless she sees something that is potentially life threateninig to a patient, she should not be relaying information that is not on that discharge sheet. And even then, she should speak directly to the doctor if she finds something wrong. And in private. Not to the patient or parent.

How many times have you asked a nurse a question and she has replied with, "The doctor will speak to you shortly." Or some such thing. It's the doctor's place to dispense such information. And he did. Her remarks were not only wrong, but not in her job description.

Correct me if I am wrong PF.

I agree with you, Addie. The nurse should never question why, unless it's to voice her misgivings to the doctor. Not the patient.
