Welcome.One has to pee. One is demanding pain meds, now. One is hypertensive. One is deteriorating. One just crapped everywhere. A doctor is rounding. A family is calling. A transporter is waiting. And pharmacy is on the phone. when the doctor backs me up to a patient who refuses to listen to me when we’re elbow-deep in a code brown, run out of wipes, and I have to hold the patient up while someone runs to get more when I say goodbye at the end of the shift to my patient that loved me after I give report to the floor on my complicated, mean, and labor-intensive patient running interference for the docs whenever I can’t get the IV pump to just. stop. beeping! me after report
