Viagra Through Canada

Viagra through canada

Viagra through canada Behold the faceless nurse!

Viagra through canada I bet she doesn’t have to decide whether to wear make-up to work!

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

Viagra through canada Wait a minute.

Viagra through canada That’s what Cherry Ames did and I became a nurse because of her!

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

Viagra through canada Some things you don’t need to know until you need to know.

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

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

Viagra through canada I’m on my second day off after a six-night stretch, viagra through canada including a 12-hour shift in the middle.

Viagra through canada I’m really getting too old for this type of stuff.

Viagra through canada Of course, viagra through canada 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.

Viagra through canada I managed to stay up until the race was over at 3:30, viagra through canada but then I was so amped up I couldn’t fall asleep!

Viagra through canada So much for Budweiser making you drowsy.

Viagra through canada Not that I drank a lot of it.

Viagra through canada Or anything.

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

The patient was anonymous.

No dates, viagra through canada no names, viagra through canada no shift, viagra through canada 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, viagra through canada it may have been a while before the doctor was able to see you. Viagra through canada There are patients who came in before you. Viagra through canada A very critical patient may have come in after you. Viagra through canada In the meantime, viagra through canada your nurse was probably (a) placing an IV, viagra through canada (b) drawing your blood and ordering the initial tests, viagra through canada (c) starting your fluids, viagra through canada (d) giving you medicine per protocol and/or (e) ordering x-rays.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

The doctor was mean!

Gee, viagra through canada that’s too bad. Viagra through canada Let’s see, viagra through canada while you were in the emergency department, viagra through canada you may have seen the doctor for, viagra through canada oh, viagra through canada twenty minutes total. Viagra through canada They examined you, viagra through canada confirmed the tests that were ordered, viagra through canada added new ones, viagra through canada perhaps ordered more pain medicine. Viagra through canada Then when all the tests were back, viagra through canada they summed up the findings, viagra through canada gave you his opinion and discussed options. Viagra through canada In the meantime, viagra through canada every need you had was taken care of by a registered nurse, viagra through canada 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, viagra through canada sorry again, viagra through canada but I don’t think so. Viagra through canada You see, viagra through canada the primary focus of patient care in general is the relief of pain. Viagra through canada Seriously. Viagra through canada We document it, viagra through canada medicate for it and document the response. Viagra through canada You need more, viagra through canada you get more. Viagra through canada Unless, viagra through canada of course, viagra through canada you are a suspected drug seeker and nine times out of ten you’ll get it anyway. Viagra through canada Chances are the person you asked for pain medicine was a registered nurse. Viagra through canada 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, viagra through canada 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, viagra through canada perhaps.

But you weren’t, viagra through canada 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, viagra through canada you would have realized that you were receiving attentive, viagra through canada 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 […]
