So, we had a rough night. One guy coded right @ shift change, 2hrs later another guy coded. @ 0100 a lady coded and aspirated a load of uknowwhat. Just when we thought we had gone over the hump, a guy we'd been monitoring his BP & O2 sats all noc decided it was his turn and then @ 0400 when we getting ready to do am stuff and catch up with the charting, we code another guy. And it wasn't even a full moon!!!
All this while doing 3 admissions, i&o caths Q2 on 2 people, mg+, K+ protocols and all the good stuff that come with nursing.
I am so thankful that we had a great team in last night because it could have been worse.
By 0700, we were so ready to get to the door.
