Nursing Christmas poem for nurses

  1. >T'was the week before Christmas
    > & all through the floor,
    >The Lasix was filling the foley's galore.
    >Stockings were worn, to prevent emboli,
    >They came in two sizes: knee, and thigh-high.
    >
    >The patients were nestled half-assed in their beds,
    >While visions of stool softeners danced in their heads.
    >We in our scrubs, and they in their gowns,
    >Fashions created to hide extra pounds.
    >
    >When down in E.R. it became such a zoo,
    >They called with admissions, for me and for you.
    >They're coming, they're going, they're looking the same,
    >My patience for patients is starting to wane.
    >
    >Another call light is ringing, the patient expounds,
    >"I have not had my peri-care, please send someone down."
    >About now delegation seems a good plan,
    >We pass onto others, the needs of this man.
    >
    >When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    >But Santa himself, and 8 tiny reindeer.
    >He states that he came from Central Supply,
    >To bring us LR, NS, and D5.
    >
    >The doctor then scribbles what no one could read,
    >Orders instruct us to measure their pee.
    >As we try to decipher illegible words,
    >We find a new order to guaiac their turds.
    >
    >The next shift arrives, our day is now through,
    >Only to discover emesis inside of our shoe!
    >We give them report and pass on the facts,
    >And tell them of duoderm lining the cracks.
    >
    >And the Nurses exclaimed as they drove out of site,
    >Let there be Ambien for all, and to all a good night!
