    That made me smile.

    Several years ago we had a dear (older) LPN whose husband had passed away. She had moved to our town to stay with her daughter and returned to being a nurse.

    Working in ortho, I guess you know we had to team up to move patients on and off stretchers etc.

    Well this gal always called for the SQUAT team.....(I think she meant swat)....but never mind....we all knew what she wanted and we all went in there and SQUAT the patient in and out of the bed.

    After all these years.....that brought a smile.
