    So glad you had a positive experience. That is my worst nightmare - to end spread out and naked on the trauma table - yikes - I'd have to find another job!
    OMG, I shave my legs EVERY day now!!! Its my worsest nightmare (nevermind the actual accident that would land me on that trauma table!) That would be the absolute worst thing, nevermind another job, I'd go to another country.

    My mom spent most of her last 2 weeks in the hospital surrounded by nurses she had known for 20 years. Some of them she gave their first job out of school. I can't tell you what a blessing they were. There were some (poor) care issues early in her stay, when the nurses who knew her found out they agreed among them selves that no stranger would take care of her and rearranged their asignments and schedules to acomplish it.
    Her final 36 hours were spent in the SNF she had worked at for over 10 years. This particular SNF was not a provider on Mom's insurance. At the time of her transfer we all knew she was dying and it would only be a matter of hours, the facility Admin went to the regional VP and got permission to waive the bed rate to take her. In the end the pharmacy waived the costs of her meds (Roxanol).

    Everyone's words to me were the same: "she is one of ours too".

    whooooooooot !!! I, too, was rolling when I read the "udderly"...... too cute ! :chuckle

    Glad you're feeling all better now, Snoops, and that your coworker healthteam family treated you as such... family. Just like at the Olive Garden, right?

    Rest and heal up... and be grateful for the positive experience. (((HUGS)))

    i was an outpatient last week ( in the hosp. that i work) for an EGD and possible lap choley. i was soooo nervous about being exposed. they all made it very light hearted so i didn't feel too embarassed. when i got to the OR my gown was tied shut and they told me while giggling " we have open back door policy" and untied my gown :imbar . they made me feel so comfortable about the whole thing. didn't have the lap at the time becuase my stomach was a mess, but i will now be having it next tuesday.....the whole situation all over again, but this time i won't be nervous. it's great when you work with wonderful co workers

    Glad you are feeling better Snoop!

    I have to say for the record I hope I am never on my unit. Although I work in the out pt setting I do work closley with the floor nurses. My speciality is GYN Oncology.
