If you could have one nursing superpower, what would it be?

  1. 2 I had a rough day at work today. There was a patient that started to go bad on me and I ended up calling a rapid response on her and sending her to ICU at another hospital. I found myself wishing I could literally predict the future, particularly my patients' futures, so I can stop things like this from happening.

    Here's my totally off-the-wall discussion topic: If you could have one super power, one that you could only use while you're at work, which would it be and why? Just curious. Thanks!

    I work in PICU. If I could have one super power it would be the ability to get every IV on the first try.

    Why? I dislike EXCEEDINGLY the 'every nurse take a limb and poke' that we are sometimes forced into when we get a kid without access from an outlying hospital.

    This super power would make me a rock star with my co-workers and my families and the docs. Only problem is- I look BAD in tights and a cape...

    I would like the ability to stop time, so deadlines would never get in my way. I guess it's not really a nursing superpower, though.

    I would banish staffing issues. I was on call nurse this weekend with a few unhappy nurses with the assignment rearrangements.

    Snap my fingers and give amnesia to anyone annoying me at that moment. Sometimes a nurse just has to have some peace and quiet.

    I would magically be able to lift, turn, and move pts from one place to another; holding them up in the air so we can get the clothes off, change the sheets, inspect the spine, move onto the CT scanner, etc. And put them back down gently, of course!

    I usually wish for the ability to speed up time at work.

    Power to auto GOMER. Kinda like the eject seat in the Batmobile.

    I work night shift. I'd like to be able to wiggle my nose and make everyone just fall asleep :-)
