Mexico Pharmacy Generic Viagra

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Behold the faceless nurse!

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I bet she doesn’t have to decide whether to wear make-up to work!

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Apparently there were many options for nurses in the 1940s – you could (a) watch a doctor, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (b) invade the personal space of a patient who looks like he’s painting, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (c) bandage a boo boo, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (d) feed a kid or (e) wash a patient’s hand.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Wait a minute.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra That’s what Cherry Ames did and I became a nurse because of her!

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I guess if she had put tubes down noses and up other orifices, mexico pharmacy generic viagra described the smell of a GI bleed or told exactly what happens to a patient in DIC, mexico pharmacy generic viagra I might not be where I am today.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Some things you don’t need to know until you need to know.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Kotex did a lot of advertising for nurses during World War 2. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I wonder why we don’t see them working with nursing recruitment today?

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

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I’m on my second day off after a six-night stretch, mexico pharmacy generic viagra including a 12-hour shift in the middle.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I’m really getting too old for this type of stuff.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Of course, mexico pharmacy generic viagra it did not help that I was up for a full 24-hours watching my man Kasey Kahne win the Pocono 500 right in the middle of the stretch.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra I managed to stay up until the race was over at 3:30, mexico pharmacy generic viagra but then I was so amped up I couldn’t fall asleep!

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra So much for Budweiser making you drowsy.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Not that I drank a lot of it.

Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Or anything.

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

The patient was anonymous.

No dates, mexico pharmacy generic viagra no names, mexico pharmacy generic viagra no shift, mexico pharmacy generic viagra no diagnosis.

Just a routine satisfaction survey that was routed to the emergency department.

And the patient was not happy.

*****

The doctor took forever to see me!

Well, mexico pharmacy generic viagra it may have been a while before the doctor was able to see you. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra There are patients who came in before you. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra A very critical patient may have come in after you. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra In the meantime, mexico pharmacy generic viagra your nurse was probably (a) placing an IV, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (b) drawing your blood and ordering the initial tests, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (c) starting your fluids, mexico pharmacy generic viagra (d) giving you medicine per protocol and/or (e) ordering x-rays.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

The doctor was mean!

Gee, mexico pharmacy generic viagra that’s too bad. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Let’s see, mexico pharmacy generic viagra while you were in the emergency department, mexico pharmacy generic viagra you may have seen the doctor for, mexico pharmacy generic viagra oh, mexico pharmacy generic viagra twenty minutes total. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra They examined you, mexico pharmacy generic viagra confirmed the tests that were ordered, mexico pharmacy generic viagra added new ones, mexico pharmacy generic viagra perhaps ordered more pain medicine. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Then when all the tests were back, mexico pharmacy generic viagra they summed up the findings, mexico pharmacy generic viagra gave you his opinion and discussed options. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra In the meantime, mexico pharmacy generic viagra every need you had was taken care of by a registered nurse, mexico pharmacy generic viagra who had the time and the knowledge needed to keep you comfortable.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

The doctor ignored my requests for pain medicine!

Oooh, mexico pharmacy generic viagra sorry again, mexico pharmacy generic viagra but I don’t think so. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra You see, mexico pharmacy generic viagra the primary focus of patient care in general is the relief of pain. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Seriously. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra We document it, mexico pharmacy generic viagra medicate for it and document the response. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra You need more, mexico pharmacy generic viagra you get more. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Unless, mexico pharmacy generic viagra of course, mexico pharmacy generic viagra you are a suspected drug seeker and nine times out of ten you’ll get it anyway. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Chances are the person you asked for pain medicine was a registered nurse. Mexico pharmacy generic viagra Chances are the reason you didn’t receive what you wanted when you wanted it was explained by a registered nurse.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

*****

With all due respect, mexico pharmacy generic viagra what century are you living in?

Did you really think that when you came into the emergency department you would have the undivided attention of a physician?

If you were dying, mexico pharmacy generic viagra perhaps.

But you weren’t, mexico pharmacy generic viagra as your evaluation makes clear.

Maybe if you had spent less time worrying about the doctor and more time actually looking at the people who were caring for you minute-by-minute, mexico pharmacy generic viagra you would have realized that you were receiving attentive, mexico pharmacy generic viagra appropriate care by professional nurses.

Didn’t you even see us?

    Kim, I love the way you write!! I always notice that the “nurse” is the one that seems to do most of the work. I wait in the lobby for a visit with my ob/gyn for about 30 minutes. I spend time with the nurse for about 10 minutes. Then the ob for 5 minutes. Then I see the nurse again for another 15 minutes or so! I might as well have just emailed my doctor with a question and made an appointment with my nurse!

    I totally agree with you regarding “not seeing the nurse”. The floor nurses are the ones that are doing everything for 12 hours and the patients complain that “I didn’t see anybody the WHOLE day!”
    Okay…..

    […] A very simple tenet you should have learned in nursing school. I too would want to forget the nurse that carried on in front of me that way. And you wonder why the medical profession gets such poor […]
