Floor nurse must deal with “difficult” task

From one book that tells how to do 2nd trimester abortions:

“The floor nurse must deal with the expelled fetus; even nurses in favor of abortion find this a lonely and difficult task.”

Second Trimester Abortion: Perspectives After a Decade of Experience (Berger, Brenner, Keith, eds, Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1981), in the chapter “Psychological Impact on Patients and Staff,” p. 247

This quote is about abortions in which the doctor injects poison into the amniotic fluid or the baby itself and waits for the woman to deliver her dead fetus. Often, the doctor is not present for the actual delivery. Sometimes the woman delivers alone, sometimes a nurse is present.
