12 hour shift on their feet. And yes, she knows you want another cup of ice chips but, the man they brought in last night has just crapped on himself, for the 3rd time today, and his daughter is visiting him from out of town so……
Meanwhile a patient….
*Needs to pee.
*2 families are calling for status updates.
*One patient is LOUDLY demanding pain meds.
*A doctor is making his rounds.
*3 heart monitors just got detached.
*The pizza just arrived and she's short $1.50. And yes it’s cold.
*She is underpaid
*The cafeteria is closed early today (hence the Pizza).
*She has washed her hands for the 197th time today.
*She just got called dumb by a person who didn't pass the 10th grade and even though she has a BSN or Masters degree in nursing.
*She literally CAN'T get the IV pump to stop beeping.
*She just saved her 7 millionth patient, from being prescribed the wrong medicine.
* She just ran down the hall for a Code Blue to perform CPR to resuscitate a patient for the third time this week with blood and bodily fluids spurting up on her fresh pair of scrubs.
*And all 3 of them just lost their favorite patient.
Meanwhile, you're ringing the buzzer non-stop, for a cup of ice chips
