Heart Attack Grill Pisses Off Nurses

Sun Dec 10, 2006 7:33 am

Yes, patronise this place. A Man Show-esqe eatery with a public disclaimer of it's dangerous foods. Anyone been to this place?

http://www.heartattackgrill.com
Waitresses Dressed as Nurses Rile Real RNs
TEMPE, Ariz. — The Heart Attack Grill -- a theme restaurant whose specialties include the Quadruple Bypass Burger and Flatliner Fries, cooked in pure lard -- is making health-care professionals' blood pressure rise, and not because of the menu.
It is because of the waitresses' naughty nurse uniforms.

The waitresses wear skimpy, cleavage-baring outfits, high heels and thigh-high stockings -- a male fantasy that some nursing organizations say is an insult to the profession

I'd eat here. It's too bad Las Vegas doesn't have a franchise.

Quoting SomeNutcaseWomanWhoNeedsToGetLaid:
"Nurses are the most sexually fantasized-about profession,"

Oh please honey, buy yourself some toys and shut up. How ridiculous, she's worried about images.

Looks like a good place to eat and view. I don't care what the burger is called if it's good and a hot waitress is delivering it.

WTF? Those are nurse uniforms? Bullshit.

These are what nurses wear, for God's sake.

*The use of the word "Nurse" above is only intended as a parody. None of the women pictured on our website actually have any medical training, nor do they attempt to provide any real medical services. It should be made clear that the Heart Attack Grill and its employees do NOT offer any therapeutic treatments (aside from laughter) whatsoever.

Very nice! The one in Windsor is good, Toronto has better though, however, being the Hooters connoisseur that I am, as far as one can be a Hooters connoisseur, there was a great one just outside Myrtle Beach if I recall correctly.

I was never crazy about Hooters's food in the first place. Now that they've tweaked the wing recipe, they truly suck swill. Even the girls have deteriorated, IMO. Sure, there are a few stunners, but they've really started to lag in Houston.

"The waitresses wear skimpy, cleavage-baring outfits, high heels and thigh-high stockings -- a male fantasy that some nursing organizations say is an insult to the profession."
There's a shocker. Someone is "offended" or "insulted"  Yeah sure

"We're asking people, if they're going to have these fantasies, please don't make it so public. Move these sexual fantasies to other professions."
Wow!

" In September, the attorney general's office wrote Basso a letter informing him that he is illegally using the word "nurse" at his restaurant and on his Web site. Citing Arizona Statute A.R.S. 32-1636, the attorney general said only someone who has a valid nursing license can use the title "nurse.""
Maybe nurses should change there title to "health" or "medical attendents", that way it frees up the title "nurse" our sexual fantasies.  Yeah sure

"But Scottsdale nurse Kira Wilder, who contributed to the letter-writing campaign against the Heart Attack Grill, complained: "Why do they have to denigrate the nursing profession and sexualize nursing? It's just not necessary.""
Why do people have to get so uptight and easily offended by the smallest things these days? Now that is not necessary.

From my very limited experience, Hooters isn't a place you go to for a good meal.

This is an interesting theme. I wonder how busy it is there considering the name of the place. One would think it would be a major turn off for people.

agreed. Went to one with some friends in Ft Myers, FL this summer but I couldn't be too bothered about either the food or the atmosphere. My friends loved it but IMHO Hooters is highly overrated.

Been there, done that (didn't get the t-shirt), never again!

I understand in principle why other nurses or nursing students would be offended by this, but as Mark already noted, we just don't dress like that. Currently, as a nursing student, my uniform consists of a bright white tunic top and pants, with my own addition of solid white socks and shoes.



But let me tell you, after working hard for eight hours, neither I nor the uniform look that glamorous.

I've been to that one a couple times (right next to Anaheim stadium right?). I've gone after getting off of work at Disneyland.

The Board of Nursing has a point here. In most states, the term "nurse" is a protected job title. It's illegal to call yourself a nurse unless you have a license as a Registered Nurse or a Practical Nurse.

Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 19):

Bad idea. All of the negative stereotypes from the profession will follow it from the term "nurse" to "health attendant", just like "steward/ess" stereotypes became "flight attendant" stereotypes. By the way, health attendant is a terrible a name. It makes it seem like a very unskilled, technical profession.

With all due respect to nurses, health and other professionals. I don't see what the big deal is if a themed resteraunt calls their waitresses "nurses". I can understand it being it "illeagal" to call yourself a "nurse" or some other title if you are working or involved in a related field.

That's basically what the law is there for. It's so the nursing aide or imaging technician doesn't introduce themselves as a nurse. But I think it encompasses everyone in all settings.

This I can understand completely. However, if one walks into a themed restaurant, and the servers introduce themselves as "nurses", one doesn't need much common-sense to realize that they are not nurses. But then again, I guess many people do lack any form of common-sense these days ...  Big grin
