BOHICA...Bend Over Here It Comes Again, as in when you get a bad assignment, have a rotten night, or just plain old get dumped on big time
I love this one.........it's a perfect description of my past several shifts:
"Give Marla the new admit.......she's only got five patients, she can handle it"
"Marla, the pharmacy's on 4730 wanting to talk to you about 208 (I just took this patient two minutes ago and don't even know his NAME, let alone what his usual meds are)"
"Nurse, this patient needs disimpaction, a soap-suds enema, and an NG tube STAT" (said patient being a combative, demented nursing-home resident who cannot POSSIBLY cooperate)
"Marla, you're getting two post-ops, and the patient in 222 needs 2 units of packed cells right away" (can anyone say "FREQUENT VITALS??!")
