Prilosec 20mg Pills $81.00

chry67simcanurse[1].jpg

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 Since when did nurses become “tough customers”?

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 Trust me.

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 You try to sell me that hideous vehicle and I’ll be a tough customer, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 alright.

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 But it won’t have anything¬†to do with my being a nurse.

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 Nurses obviously held a much higher status back in the 1960s than they do today.

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 The nursing image sold everything from cars to clothes soap!

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 These days you might see a nursing image selling sex, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 but let’s not go there.

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 That really is an ugly car!

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 I mean, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 how many nurses do you see driving Simcas today?

Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 I rest my case.

****************************************

Betty Boop

I know you all may be shocked to know that I was once considered a cheap date.

While I was married!

And it all started with a burst of Nitrospray.

********************

?

It wasn’t my fault.

My elderly patient was having chest pain.

My elderly patient was deaf.

My elderly patient needed Nitrospray.

To encourage my patient to open his mouth, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 I leaned over to speak slightly louder into one of his ears.

I pressed the plunger.

I think the patient got more of the dose than I did, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 but I can’t be sure.

********************

What I can be sure of is that nitroglycerin really does work fast.

I had time to walk out of the room before it hit.

Lightheaded, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 tachycardic with palpations, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 somewhere in that twilight zone that lies between the hint of sweat and profuse diaphoresis.

I was gonna go sycopal on their heinies!

Luckily our “trauma” room was empty and I threw myself onto the gurney.

Within ten to fifteen minutes I felt normal enough to get up.

Now what was more embarrassing?¬† Having the reaction to nitro or the fact that no one realized I was flat on my back on a trauma gurney for fifteen minutes and didn’t even miss me!

It’s a toss-up.

********************

I made the fatal mistake of mentioning this episode to a couple of the medics.

Ladies and gentlemen, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 don’t ever tell an embarrassing story to paramedics.

They will torture you for years.

They will pull out Nitrospray and flash it in front of your face.

They will threaten you with Nitrospray if you do not allow them to partake of your potluck.

They are ruthless.

And worst of all, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 they said that if all it took to knock me out was Nitrospray, prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 well then I must be fun on a date.

And that is how I got the sobriquet of “cheap date” when all I did was nearly faint.

********************

But I am not a cheap date.?

I can be had for one Venti Caramel Frappuchino with an add-shot and heavy on the whipped cream. Prilosec 20mg pills $81.00 That’s at least four bucks!

And my husband has taken adavantage of that weakness on numerous occasions.

Because I’m worth it.

Coumadin 1mg Pills $115.00

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 How?

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 By getting interviewed?

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Put a reporter in my face and I’d produce so much adrenaline I wouldn’t be tired for a week!

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Maybe he’s a detective, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 but that would only be worse.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Maybe he’s getting her opinion on how well her support hose is working, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 but then she’d probably slap him.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 (Back then women could get away with that. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 They did it in the movies all the time.)

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 She looks so happy that someone is talking to her and writing down every word.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 She’d gladly break every HIPPA law on the books for her fifteen minutes of fame.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 You can just feel it….

*********************************************************************

There are a million stories out there in the Naked Hospital.

And there are three sides to every one of them.

******************

Perception is everything.

Having had recent experience as the nurse, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 the patient and the family member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I am in the unique position of seeing all three sides.

Let us examine how the perception of time, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 place and situation differ depending on which “chair” you occupy.

Episode One: The Perception of Time

  • Nurse: Okay, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 patient is back from x-ray and needs to be re-revitaled, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 but he’s stable and I have a new admission and need to start an IV on my other patient and start his pre-op antibiotic.
  • Patient: I’m sedated.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Geeze, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 he’s been back for an hour and I haven’t even seen his nurse yet. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Hmmm….he’s had Dilaudid, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I wonder what his vitals are? (Thinks about putting pt on monitor….nah, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 they might think you’re pushy.) Well, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 his airway is intact, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 his respirations are regular, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 his color is good and he’s sedated. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No problem, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ve got this wonderful three-year-old Time Magazine to help pass the time, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 obviously written before Tom Cruise had his meltdown. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Oh look at this, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Britney wasn’t even married yet. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 How time flies (no pun intended).

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Episode Two: The Introduction

  • Nurse: Gotta get these vitals done, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 thank god he’s still asleep, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 there’s a woman in the room, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 couldn’t care less who it is. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No time for pleasantries. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 we don’t have any results back yet. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No we don’t know what the ultrasound showed. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No need to tell you who I am.
  • Patient: I’m sedated.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Ah yes, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 five hours after arrival and three hours after blood has been drawn, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 how could I possibly expect any results. Silly me. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 That’s why I don’t work in this ER; I had forgotten. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Now, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 the ultrasound is another story, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 they are probably swamped and those results can be delayed. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Dang, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 this chair is giving me a backache….geeze that nurse is a bitch. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No one smiles around here. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Must..blog..on..paper…towel…to…ease…frustration….

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Episode Three: Pain is the fifth vital sign

  • Nurse: How could you say your pain is that high, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you were asleep when I came in! How can you be in pain and asleep?
  • Patient: Huh? What? Oh, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 it’s the blood pressure cuff…huh? About 4-5. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Oh, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 gee, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I must have given the wrong answer, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 let me drop the number by two and see if I pass the test. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’m sure tired.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: I cannot believe she just questioned his pain scale. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 (Outloud): “Honey, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you need to say what the pain is for you. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 There is no right or wrong answer” (/outloud) Geeze that nurse is a jerk. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 But at least she started smiling after she found out I was an RN. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 For awhile there I thought she had botoxed her way to mediocrity.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Episode Four: And the hits just keep on comin’

(Heard via ringdown: possible triple dissecting AAA enroute Code 3

Heard two seconds later, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 overhead: Trauma Code, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Alpha, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 ETA 5)

  • Nurse: Oh (insert four-letter word of choice here)…….!!!!!!!!
  • Patient: I’m sedated.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Oh (insert four-letter word of choice here)….I feel sorry for the staff….bad shift….this means it will be another two hours before we see anyone or get any results. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Good thing I’ve got this Family Circle from 1963 to keep me occupied. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Hmmm….look at this article that states some women actually work outside the home….and a great recipe for lard-encrusted deep-fried cake! Dang, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 my back aches in this chair.

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Episode Five: The Change of Shift@1900

  • ER Doctor: You have gallstones (Ed note: diagnosis=seven hours in the making). Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Your blood sugar is up. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Do you have a doctor? Do you have insurance? (Ed note: oh yes, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 he did say that! And this is the only time I saw him.) You’ll be followed up by the hospitalist and surgeon. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Looks like you’ll have to stay in the hospital tonight.
  • Nurse: Hey dude! I’m your totally cool and energetic new nurse. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Let me introduce myself to your wife! Why she looks familiar. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Why, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 we know the same people! Dude, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 how’s the pain – can you deal? You call me if you need more of the good juice, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 man, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 okay?
  • Patient: I’m awake and okay. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Good to meet you. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Do you think we can put this off until after my son’s graduation?
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Thank you, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 God. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 He’s in good hands now. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Probably laparoscopic chole and we’re good to go! This is the second time someone has mentioned blood sugar. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 And now they’re giving insulin……is this true diabetes or a fluke response to cholecystitis. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Pancreas numbers normal. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Hmmmmm…..

Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Episode Six: The Pain Returns With A Vengeance

(Heard overhead: Trauma Code Alpha, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 ETA 5)
(Yes, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 this is another one!)
  • Nurse: Oh (insert new four-letter word)….Man, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 this is frustrating, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I have asked the doctor to write another order three times but he hasn’t gotten to it yet. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 My patient is hurting worse and can’t find a comfortable position. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 This isn’t fair. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 We are so freakin’ busy!
  • Patient: The pain is worse and I can’t find a comfortable position. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I need more of the medication, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’m almost at the same level as when I came in, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 and I am now wide awake and cranky (when the nurse is out of the room). Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I think you should go home and check kids.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Oh (insert two four-letter words here)…now we are that much more behind in getting anywhere. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 (Reminds patient that kids are adults.)Where the hell is the pain medication? Forty-five minutes have elapsed so far from the time of the request. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Gee, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 watching a clock is a pain. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Here, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll put the call bell on your siderail instead of five feet away from you and if the pain gets worse I want you to call. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll go get Son and we’ll switch cars and get yours home. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Yes, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I have your wallet. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 No, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 we don’t know about surgery until you see a surgeon. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll stay until you get your shot. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Okay, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll go now but only if your promise to call the nurse prn. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 That means as needed. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Sorry. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Nursespeak.
Episode Seven: The Hospitalist

  • MD: Hi! I’m Dr. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Young-Enough-To-Be-Your-Son. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Looks like you have gallstones and your sugar is up. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Let me take a comprehensive history! Yes, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you can have a sip of water! Nice to meet you!
  • Patient: Okay! (I would be sedated but someone is talking to me. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 It took an hour to get medicated and now I am and no one will leave me alone! So this is what “high” feels like.)
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: Wow. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 He’s young enough to be my son. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 He’s cute, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 too. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 In a theraputic way, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 of course. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll pull the curtain so there is some privacy for the exam. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 We still have to wait for the surgeon. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 You’re just the introductory doc. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Good thing I brought this book called “Cutting Remarks” about the life of a surgical resident in the ’70s, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 to read while I wait. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Only a nurse would bring this. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Haha. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I crack myself up.
Episode Eight: THE SURGEON
(Time elapsed since patient arrival: Ten Hours)
  • THE SURGEON: Hello, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I am THE SURGEON. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 You may bow in my presense and call me GOD! I am about to take an extremely thorough history and I will take no nonsense from that woman in the corner, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 nor will I engage in any nonsense. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I may be small and female, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 but so help me, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 ME, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I have more authority in my little finger than you’ve had your entire life. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Answer the following questions. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 They will come fast, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 they will come succinct and they will help me save your life. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Let me finish discussing the surgery and risks before you barage me with question about if you will be able to travel to your son’s graduation. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 (Raises eyebrow at Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 who shuts up immediately). Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I will use this detailed model I have just drawn at the bedside to explain exactly what I am going to do. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 We don’t have to do surgery right away if your pain is better and your liver enzymes are down tomorrow. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 If they are not, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 we will have to do surgery. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 You are a diabetic and fooling yourself if you think you are healthy. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I will now depart with my flowing scrub jacket flapping behind me.
  • The Patient: Oh man. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’m tired and want to go to sleep. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 You go home, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you need some sleep.
  • Family Member RN: I love that SURGEON! She’s’ tough, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 she’s cool, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 she rocks! She has the bedside manner of a screwdriver but in the OR, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 it’s her skills that you need and she used to do trauma! Hella cool! No, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll stay until you get up to your room. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’m a night nurse, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 remember? I’m used to this. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 (I’m exhausted. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 My back hurts. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ve read the same paragraph four times, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 but you don’t need to know that.) I’m fine (smile, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 girl, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 smile – get your Academy Award later).
Episode Nine: The Admission
  • Nurse: We have a room assignment, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 we’ll have you up by 2330. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Change of shift, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you know.
  • Patient: Thank god. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ve been here 12 hours. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Honey, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you go home.
  • Family Member, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 RN: (It’s change of shift, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 you won’t be outta here until 0100). Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 I’ll go so you can sleep. Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 Love you, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 too! (Keep smiling…..lose it in the elevator….don’t lose it in front of him). Aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 See ya tomorrow! (I’m gonna go home and blog)
And there you have it.
The view from all three sides of the health-care triangle, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 from someone who’s been seen it all.
But no matter where you sit, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 the goal is the same.
The health, aygestin 5mg pills $83.00 care and comfort of the patient.
It’s what we do.
