ode to my favorite gelatinous goo
This drug calms that nervous little old lady. It stops the tremors of the withdrawing drunk. It makes that neurotic bitch in bed 4 tolerable. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am talking about that miracle drug Ativan.
I mean seriously, they expect us to continue to do our jobs without this nectar of the Gods, vitamin A, that we hold near and dear to our hearts. Tell me it is not so, cruel drug company, tell me it is not so. I cannot work under these conditions. I cannot work without that tiny vial full of a gelatinous goo...
I'll tell you why there is a shortage! Nurses have wondered for years why Ativan does not come in a 1 mg dose instead of the common 2 mg vial. The most common dose is 1 mg, we often waste the other 1 mg. Now we all wish we had all those 1 mg's back that we squirted down the sink. There is a river of Ativan, a veritable sea of goo, somewhere out there that we could use right now...
I WANT SOMEBODY TO TELL ME WHAT I, AS A ER NURSE,AM SUPPOSED TO DO IN A WORLD WITHOUT ATIVAN!!!!???
