I gotta say, it was a good day



So I picked up an extra shift today. God knows why. I never do that. The shift was 8 hours. I typically work 12 hour shifts, so 8 is a piece of cake. I was thinking when I got home and didn't feel like I had been hit by a truck, that this what it feels to work at a normal job. You work a reasonable amount of hours and aren't completely exhausted when you get home.

What a concept.

Besides that, there is a minor hear wave going on here. It was 43 today.

Life is good on the frozen tundra today.

Welcome to my world, won't you come on in...

Go ahead. Click on the arrow. Its OK. You can trust me. You know that...OK did youdo it? Does it make the hair on the back of your neck stand up? 

Welcome to my world. At least once a shift someone is doing something similar to this. They are screaming so loud that it can be heard throughout the emergency department. Last
week it was someone who doesn't like white people screaming about their dislike, followed by yelling for their mother. Now mind you this is a grown adult. 



It's just another day......lalalala....

Mondays are shit shows



It's sleepy time here at the madness blog. I have taken 50 mg of melatonin. As I drift off to sleep, I will be thinking of the guaranteed shit show that Mondays always are....

ER nurse returns to scene of crime


So I'm back. Yes, in the waning days of my crazy career as your friendly neighborhood ER nurse, I have decided to the blog the shit out of these last months.  Yes, my dear readers, yours truly will be leaving the ER within this next year. I have already told everybody in order to force myself to actually do it.

When I do leave the Hortenz W. Snagglepuss ER (YES our ER will be named after some fool who threw some money at the hospital in order to be memorialized on our ghetto ER), no doubt the ER will implode behind me.  

So let the re- blogging adventure commence. Are you still out there in the blogger universe? Come back to me, you deviants...

Before I restart, A BIT OF A DISCLAIMER:  Everything on this blog is true. I have not changed a word of what happened. In fact, I plan to quote patients verbatim. I will probably use real names.  In fact here is my name: Nancy Nussbomb.  I work at the world famous Bob's We're #1 In Rectal Surgery We Are Certified In Everything Some Shit You Never Heard Of We Have Electromagnetic Status (a super-duper nursing certification that leaves magnet status in the dust) Hospital. We are located in downtown Des Moines. That's a picture of me over to the side.

HIPAA be damned! Come at me bro!
