I work on a thirty-two bed mixed medical specialty ward in an acute tertiary hospital. We currently have four beds closed because we don't have enough staff to meet the nurse/patient ratio, so that's seven patients for four nurses.
We usually get really busy around Christmas/New Year, but the ward's really pleasant at the moment - nobody's particularly sick, and we haven't had a transplant in over a week. There are six internet-accessible computers on the ward, two at the main desk (which is where I'm sitting). In between checking allnurses I'm proofing my thesis and playing games - of course, all this comes after checking on my patients and performing their care
One of my colleagues is on a tea break, and the nurse in charge tonight is playing elf bowling on the computer one desk over.
It's rarely like this, so we're all enjoying the uncharacteristic change of pace
