Poor Prudence: An ER/Med-surg/LTC melodrama - page 2

    I cannot wait for the sequel!
    that had me rolling on the floor!
    unfortunately its one of those funny cuz its true jobbies
    I have an idea for part two
    it could be something like
    attack of the killer management part 2 - prudences revenge!
    she comes back in ghost form and reeks major havoc with the hospital , but spares the loving nurses any harm because of course, in the afterlife she realizes that they were the ones trying to advocate for her.
    hopefully the malpractice lawyer gets impaled with a sharp sharp object or something
    wicked!

    OK, for the few brave and gracious people who asked for a sequel, I stuck one out there ( having borrowed generously from Wendy's ideas)! Thanks so much for putting up with my new, bizarre form of venting!!! (((hugs))) to Allnurses!! JeannieM:kiss

    YEAHH This is incredible. You are SOOO talented.

    You should put something in there about the voting/taxpaying public who are footing the bills for these kinds of trips to oblivion.

    Love

    That was most excellent indeed!!! Don't forget to add in part 2 about the son from the other side of the moon--who "flew' in as soon as he heard about poor ma's turn for the worse. (you know the son who never visits when he is in town--because he is too busy, and forgets to call on birthdays and holidays--cuz "mom has so many friends at the Happy Path to the LIGHT nursing home".

    Well I say Dickie comes along and drools over the idea of a lawsuit. 'I was just about to see my mama for the last time--all I wanted to do was hold her hand'

    "Uh, Dickie your mom lost her hands during the last hospital admission when she got them caught in the automated med cart, remember???"

    So they are now suing for 17 million for pain and suffering (they are including all the pain 'mama' went through during her leg... opps hand amputation).

    Zumalong, if I hadn't already submitted a sequel, Dickie and the amputated hands would definitely have had a role. And I LOVE the "Happy Path to the LIght Nursing Home"! How about giving us a "Dickie" thread??? :chuckle Jeannie

    Yeah, we need a Dickie thread! The public, who are the culprits, I mean actors here, don't believe this stuff happens! I hope you guys are going to get these published!! Great gift ideas for nurses!!
