Whoops I did it Again...

I had 11 lovely days off.


I came back to work.

This is my 4th night in a row.

Our census is at maximum.

I have had 3 different patient assignments in 4 shifts.

The clerk is getting on my (and everyone else's) nerves.

Someone ate my orange from the report room.

The scrub machine is out of Small scrubs: Saturday night I wore Mediums. Tonight I'm wearing Larges. *I feel like Jared from the S*bway commercial~BEFORE and AFTER*

My Spanish (and sleep deprived brain) failed me tonight. I meant to call the baby "Guapo" (handsome), I called him "Gordo" (fat and ugly). I felt like an a$$.

While attempting do unclog a feeding tube, I sprayed myself in the face. Yum.

While changing a diaper, I got farted on. (classier word choice??)

My pen fell in the toilet in the bathroom; that's a lost cause.

Last night I chewed out a resident about the orders he wrote (or didn't write) for my patient; he begrudginly complied with my bitching; the fellow commended the residnet's"orders" during rounds...tonight the said resident is much nicer to me.

Tonight is the new intern's first night; he cannot figure out what way is up.

My feet hurt.

I really want some coffee right now.

My patients monitor is going off.

Crisis averted.

GLAMOROUS by Fergie is stuck in my head.

I'm yearning for my bed.

I was doing burn care during the Sperbowl and missed the game. Oh well, my boys blew it. Guess all those"F*ck New England" shirts around here worked out.

I've run out of things to complain about. Thanks for listening.

Hope things have improved? Your Spanish error reminds me of the time we were at a restaurant and my husband asked for a "cocha" instead of a "coha" and the busboy gave him the big eyed look and went to get the manager!

My spelling in Spanish isn't good, but he really wanted a box, although that is certainly not what he asked for!

Oh my goodness Kelly! I'll probably burn for this but I almost spit my lemonade out laughing when I read parts of this.

Wow! That's a lot of variety packed into one job. Good for you for balancing it all out!

(Checking for typos before I hit "publish" this time, lol!)

You and my husband would have a lot to talk about. He's a paramedic and constantly being covered in bodily fluids and stumbling with his Spanish. :-)

WOW!! What a night! I hope each night is not that interesting... but it probably is because you're a nurse and I can only imagine everything you are doing. I chickened out of going for my license... I didn't like the idea of shooting people with needles.

Hi all!
I must admit, a lot of my nights have some crazy twists, but I'm almost like a junkie for the obscene. I figure, if nothing else, my stories make me the life of the party!
For the record, I really do love my job....crazy patients (bad Spanish) and all!
