Spectra-link phone rings...
Aide: Minnie? 37 needs to see her nurse right away.
Me: Okay. What's up?
--- no reply. call ended ----
Drop what I'm doing and head down to room 37.
Me: Mrs. 37? Everything alright??
37: I need the bedpan.
(it's too late)
I will clean poop anytime, but seriously??? C'mon!! ASK the patient why they need the nurse and prevent a problem. At least I'd like to think this was the case, and not that the patient was already soiled and the aide didn't want to deal with it!
Okay. Feel better now.
