My presentation is called “Shoot From the HIPAA”. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Come and nod your head knowingly and clap for me so I look good. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I’m not above bribery.

I have cookies.

**********

The car drifted by the ambulance entrance. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 The glow of the brake lights lit the corner of my eye.

Incoming.

I closed my textbook. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Sigh. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I was hoping for downtime.

There was activity in the parking lot. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 A group emerged, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 formed a circle and scooted rapidly through the pneumatic doors, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 right up to the nurses station.

They all spoke at once.

Not breathing…won’t wake up…vomited…alcohol poisoning…can’t wake her up…drinking….not breathing…oh my god…poured water on her…throwing up…called parents…voicemail…

The frantic mass of hair and earrings, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 denim and tattoos parted to expose my patient, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 held, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 barely, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 by a guy struggling to keep her aloft. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Head flopping, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 arms hanging, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 hair matted with vomit, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 tank top stretched out of shape, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 skirt hiked and everything soaked.

But she was breathing. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Sounded like a sailor snoring, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 but she was breathing.

Less than ten seconds after her arrival, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 she was breathing on a gurney.

***

Underage. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Under-dressed. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Over-drunk.

Got what info I could from her friends, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 all seven. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Name: Stephanie. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Age 18. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Party. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Vodka. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Tequila shots. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Too much. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Found “asleep”, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 wouldn’t wake up. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Water on her face. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 One girl identified herself as the “Best Friend” and asked to stay, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 the rest I sent to the waiting room . Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Best Friend had been the one who called the parents. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Said the others were f***ing pissed off at her for doing it.

At least they brought her in.

We settled Stephanie in, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 did all the usual procedures. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I bet she felt very adult when she left home last night, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 and quite mature as she threw back those tequila shots. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 She sure didn’t look very adult now. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 She looked like what she was, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 a drunk teenager. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 She will probably be mortified to find out she vomited all over herself and urinated down her legs all over her friend’s car.

I got the number for the parents from Best Friend. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I called; the call went to voice mail. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I left a message. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I hate that.

***

I passed the waiting room on my way to the lab. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Stephanie’s friends were laughing and joking.

“Oh man, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 we shoulda got a picture when we were dumping water on her.” Much merriment.

“Yeah! Let’s get one in the hospital…upload it!”

Oh, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 HELL NO.

Punks.

Now I’m not stupid, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 and there are ways of talking to people that gets your message across without sounding like a total bitch. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 You know, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 making them think you are on their wavelength when you’d like nothing better than to put your fist in their face.

“Hey guys, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I couldn’t help overhearing. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I need to let you know that taking pictures in the hospital is not allowed. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 It’s the law, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 and besides that wouldn’t really be fair to Stephanie, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 right? It was nice of you to get help for her, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 she needs your support.”

That’s what I said. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 My unspoken thought was “…and not a single one of your is setting foot in that room for any reason.”

***

I was fuming. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Stephanie may have been an adult by law, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 but right now she was as helpless as an infant and I had a duty to protect her. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 She might wake up and cuss me up one side and down the other, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 but this child-adult was somebody’s baby. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I raised three kids. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I would have wanted someone protecting them.

Hell, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I was 18 once. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Back then you did stupid things and cringed at the memory. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 But the years went by, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 you matured and moved on. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Today mistakes are documented for posterity and a dumb mistake follows you for the rest of your life.

Well, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 not this one. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Not tonight.

***

The group of “friends” left soon after, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 with no opportunity to be photojournalists. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Best Friend left with them, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 leaving her number in case the parents did not call by the time Stephanie was ready for discharge.

They did call, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 around sunrise. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 They were frantic, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 they thought Stephanie had come home and was asleep in her room.

Uh. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 No.

Stephanie woke up, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 too. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Didn’t feel so good. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Mom and Dad were bringing clean clothes. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I told her why hers weren’t usable. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 “Ewwwww!” she said, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 gingerly climbing back into the gurney. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 I acknowledged that she probably didn’t feel like having a lecture on alcohol, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 that the decision on whether or not to drink was totally hers.

But we talked about what happens after the drinking is over.

To put it in nursing diagnoses terms, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 we talked about “Control, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 loss of.”

We talked about loss of control of airway and aspiration of vomit.

We talked about loss of control of bladder and peeing all over a friend’s car.

We talked about loss of control of our environment, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 and photos winding up on the Internet. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Forever.

We talked about loss of control of awareness, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 and of those who would take advantage of that.

***

Teenagers think they are invincible. Klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 Talking about death – it won’t happen to them.

Talking about not drinking – they can do what they want!

But what’s the one thing they do want?

Control over their lives.

Stephanie lost control of her life for a prolonged period tonight.

That should scare the hell out of her.

I hope she learned a lesson from it.

And if I did nothing else, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 at least I gave her a chance to cringe at the memory, klaricid 500mg pills $243.00 mature and move on.

    The one other thing I would have tried to add, & it sounds like you did a great job, would be alcohol poisoning…as in, never waking up. Even the parents probably knew nothing about that….”oh, all kids experiment with drugs & alcohol”….Its a hard one to explain, but in my point of view, crucial.

    That patient is lucky to have had you for a nurse. As both a former teenager and a future nurse: thank you!

    The first time waking in the hospital after drinking too much is scary but it gets easier after that. The freedoms slowly slip away and drinking becomes a habit then a necessity. Those who pass out need help, it was not just a party. It may have just been the beginning of a life style.

    This story is a daily occurrence in my ER… and having to leave the voice mail leaves a sick feeling in my gut.
