    Why can you only ask for........one........thing..........at..........a ...........time..........??????

    When I say "Is there anything else I can do for you right now?"

    You say "Nausea Medicine."

    I say "Sure, let me get it. Is there ANYTHING ELSE I you'd like me to bring you when I get your Phenergan?"

    You say "Nope."

    Three minutes later, I'm back with your Phenergan and you say "Can I get something for pain?"

    I say "Sure, give me just a minute and I'll bring your pain meds. ANYTHING ELSE WHILE I'M GETTING THAT?"

    You say "Nope."

    Just a minute later, I say "OK, here's your Dilaudid. Call me if you need ANYTHING, otherwise I'll be back to check on your pain level in 30....yadda yadda."

    You say "Can I have a Sprite."

    And so it continues from sprite.......to another blanket.........to more ice..........to a sleeping pill (to which I say how about two?)...........Good Lord people, I'm lucky enough to have both arms just give me a damn list and let's get this done already!

    Why is a vistor comes up to the desk and states "mum needs pain meds / nauseated / wants a blanket"

    I'm not your mum's nurse so I don't know who mum is. A name or bed number is a great help! I have plenty of mums in here. Narrow it down!

    I do acutually say this to people. "we have plently of mums / dads / brothers here. A name helps!"
    To which the response is Oh but you looked after them last week and I spoke to you then.......................LAST WEEK...........................where is the brick wall?
