Wait, your new baby is hospitalized???? If that is the case, that "fail" is not legit at all in that no wonder you couldn't concentrate! I hope all works out ok!!!
im glad to hear OP passed the second time around after sleep and stress reduction.
THAT SAID, the fail is absolutely legit. i hate to say it, but if her baby takes a turn for the worst and the pedi nurse is sleepy and grabs the wrong acls med or whatever, i highly doubt telling any grieving mother their baby died because you were sleepy and screwed up will be acceptable or any source consolation.
i dare you to try to tell a grieving family your compressions were not fast and deep because your hubby snored all nighT and kept you from 8hrs of shut eye.
this is why we retest, because life happens and usually performance anxiety makes us weak whereas adrenaline during an actual code keep up on point.
but please, i hope you arent really that nonchalant and forgiving, Neverbethesame.
