How does a nurse not get attached to their patient?

How do you avoid emotional transference? Are nurses supposed to not ‘care’ about their care? How much is too much?

Some of the video content and conversation is out of context, but I thought the information was valuable and wanted to share it here. I hope you don’t mind. Oh, there might be some colorful language.
