After my pleasant shift yesterday, fate had it in for me. Any day in which you have to ask “is this what x bad symptom that I’ve never seen before looks like?” is a tough day.
But I got through it to my oscar watching party with some help from my fellow nurses. Who am I kidding? A LOT of help.
First of all, a big thank you to everyone who answered my endless questions “where are-”
Thank you nurse that took care of one nearly fainting patient when I was taking care of another.
Thank you PCAs for helping so much with baths, bathroom, vitals, and everything. I’m sorry I was always running out of the room to answer phone calls.
Thank you to those that covered while I took a 20 minute lunch… And not rolling your eyes too much…
And thanks to the (float!) resource nurse who offered to take a blood sugar to make my day better.
Thanks to my patients for being (mostly) patient and chill.
Thank you HUCs for putting that patients sandwich in the fridge for me.
Thanks to the charge nurse for advocating and wasting with me and giving me a sweet admit at the end.
Thanks to the services for being polite and responding quickly to my incessant pages.
Thank you God for getting me through…
