    a lunch hour? what's that?

    Most of the time I just scarf down whatever food I can within the few minutes I have, if I'm that lucky.

    I have signed my checks/credit cards with "turnforthenurse, RN."
    Knocking before entering any room at home. Or anywhere, really.
    Washing my hands BEFORE going to bathroom (and after, of course!)
    Admiring veins from afar. I dream of putting in a nice 16G into those garden hoses. I even like palpating and admiring my hubby's veins
    My nurse walk...I walk very fast at work, and I do the same when I'm off the clock. Hubby is always telling me to slow down!

    Our hospital has the paper towel dispensers that are automatic, you know, wave your hand under it and the paper towel rolls out. Once I was at Disneyland, I washed my hands and waved my hand under the paper towel dispenser, I did it again. No paper towel. Yeah....it wasn't automatic, just a metal box with paper towels inside. Did I mention I had worked 3 or 4 shifts in a row before going to Disneyland?
