16 Nurses from the Intensive Care Unit in Arizona are All Pregnant

A group of 16 nurses who all work in the intensive care unit of the Banner Desert Medical Centre have all become pregnant at the same time. They discovered how many of them were expecting children when they all joined a Facebook group. The group is designed to give people support when they work in a hospital while pregnant. If you work in a nursing recruitment agency or even in a nurse agency then you will understand more than anyone how astonishing this is.

A lot of people have come out to say that nursing is not an easy job to do at all, and this is especially the case when you are pregnant. At the end of the day, it is so nice for people to have the help and support they need and it is also nice for them to have the respect from the management team as well. They believe that this has been a good experience to say the least and they are all due to give birth between the months of October and January. Some people believe that the absence of nurses may cause complications for the ICU and that it will have an impact on patient care as well. Other people believe that the hospital has plenty of time to prepare for their leave and that they have professionals who are willing to step in to lend a hand when required.

This being said, a lot needs to be done to try and give nurses the support they need when they are pregnant and it is fantastic to see that there are a ton of Facebook groups being setup to try and offer this to those who need it the most. What’s even better is that people are actually using them.
