And we were having such a nice day, too...

  1. The curse has not set in, but it is upon us.

    In the nursing office (which is really a suite of offices that are not all nurses, but we get to keep the cool name ), our director of marketing just walked in, and remarked, "Wow, it's been such a nice, quiet day."

    Instantly, from our offices, three nurses and a social worker, all said as one, "WHY DID YOU SAY THAT?" (We couldn't have coordinated like that if we tried.)

    We're doomed now and we've made it clear this is his fault. It was a pleasure knowing you all.

    ...that silliness out of the way, what are your favorite work superstitions, whether you believe or not?

    Um....that one's real, as is the general knowledge that all manner of oddities happen during a full moon.

    When a patient tells me they have great veins and I'll have no trouble with their IV.... I know I'll blow it.

    You are doomed. You are all doomed.

    Using the "q" work is my favourite superstition.
    My second is you never, never, never, EVER say the name of a frequent flier. Cause they will just fly right in within the next 24 hours

    This is 100% true and I've been guilty of thinking up patients. Particularly the more colorful ones.

    Some fool says "We are slow right now" in the ER!!!

    Flogging and stoning are not punishment enough

    If you say the name of a discharged patient they will be back.

    Can't say the Q word either.

    No, no! You have to say it three times in a row...like Beetlejuice!

    Oh no- you're not going to jinx me, Audrey Smagic!

    As soon as I tell you my magic spells, the Spirits of Pain & Mischievousness will learn them and I will be forever damned to hoe the Rough Row!

    No way.

    Uh uh!

    I'm going to be driving the struggle bus this weekend, covering RN Supervisor for the adolescent psych building, so...I feel ya. May the odds be ever in your favor.
