Twas The Night Before Christmas

  1. This is for all my night nurses and anyone else who wants a good laugh


    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
    AND UP ON OB
    A NURSE YELLED "THICK MEC,
    I NEED A DELEE"

    IV'S WITH PITOCIN
    WERE ALL HUNG WITH CARE
    IN HOPES THEY'LL DELIVER
    AND STOP PULLING THEIR HAIR

    THE WOMEN WERE SCREAMING
    IN THEIR BIRTHING BEDS
    WHILE VISIONS OF EPIDURALS
    DANCED IN THEIR HEADS

    THE STAFFING IS SHORT
    WITH NO ONE ON CALL
    EVERY WARMER IS DIRTY
    AND SITS IN THE HALL

    JUST WHEN I THOUGHT
    THERE'S AN END TO THIS HELL
    THE PATIENT IN TRIAGE
    HAS A MAJOR DECEL

    SO WE RUSH WITH A GURNEY
    AND RACE TO THE BACK
    THE O.R. IS DIRTY
    NOT ONE SECTION PACK

    I DROPPED TO MY KNEES
    AND I STARTED TO CRY
    WHEN I HEARD THE BELLS JINGLE
    AND LOOKED TOWARD THE SKY

    THERE WAS ST. NICK
    ON HIS SLEIGH IN THE REAR
    HE HAD 12 SMILING NURSES
    THE DAY SHIFT IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!
