a new day dawns at the madness blog
All previous posts have been eliminated. Why? I have decided to turn over a new leaf and become a nice nurse who never says anything bad about anything or anybody. Yes I intend to take on the persona of one Florence Nightengale, champion soother of brow, well known reliever of pain, and general righter of wrongs. I shall go forth from this day to heal the sick, comfort the dispossessed......Im sorry I jus' ain't got it in me, I can't do it. I am evil at heart..rotten to the core as it were.
You may have made your daily foray to the madness blog earlier today and found that it was unavailable. During that time, I was contemplating the meaning of blog life. I came to no conclusions...anyway...moving on..
So today sucked. Big time. I got there and there was chaos in triage and it only got worse as the day went on. People were coming out of the woodwork with their tales of woe, tragedy and general mayhem. These people were sick. They weren't your average stubbed toe or puncture wound. At one point I had four people who NEEDED to go back and there was absolutely no place to put them. That's a really bad feeling for a triage nurse. Its a shit, what do I do now feeling? Its a please nobody go down the toilet feeling. We somehow managed by going on divert. By the evening it was dead.
Now it can be complete chaos and you will always have that one person appear at the window to ask why they haven't gone back yet. Usually they are the one with the stubbed toe. When you tell them the whole "triage" concept, they look at you like you are from outer space, can't quite grasp it.
And so another day in paradise...can't wait til tomorrow...
