Letters to the Editor
I don't understand why you continue to be an ER nurse. You seem to hate everything about it: the patients, the management, etc. I'm sure that your hateful attitude is reflected in your care. I think you should quit for everybodys sake.
My dear Persephone:
You are right. I hate my job. I hate the patients, the doctors, the management, even my co-workers. At this point, I am only staying with the job to punish people who have done me wrong (i.e. the people already mentioned).
Dear Madness the Nurse (AKA Girlvet):
How do you deal with all the disgusting things that come out of humans: poop, pee, snot, vomit? Its so gross..
You silly boy Peter,
To deal with it, I push it off on my co-workers, usually techs, who are after all, "under the direct supervision of a registered nurse" and therefore, I rule their world. 'Nuff said.
Hasta la vista
Dear "Madness" the nurse (AKA "Girlvet"):
Is this blog real? Some of the stuff seems proposterous. I mean really, no job is this bad. Come clean, who are you really?
"Philomena"? Who names their kid "Philomena"?
Anyway, "Philomena", okay ya got me. My wife, Gladys, works as a housekeeper in an ER. Every night I have a Bud light ready for her and she sits down in the lazy boy and regales me with stories until she passes out from one too many Buds. Then I go to the computer and take on my "Madness the nurse/AKA Girvet" persona. As Madness I am a cranky, cynical, old bitch who's been an ER nurse way too long. I'm burnt to a crisp. I think that unless your arm is hanging by a thread, you ain't an emergency. Eerily, its almost like I have become Madness. Gladys doesn't know about this little side activity of mine. Don't tell her. Its our secret...
Don't take any wooden nickels,
