Yup it was definitely Friday the 13th on my unit today. Had a full house, plus 4 planned OR cases, short staffed, management was in as charge RN. Intubations, ECMO decans, an additional 3 admissions (which is rare in a cardiac icu), one needing an emergent balloon atrial septostomy at the bedside. I had a 1800 admit and at 1830 was sending my other kiddos mom to the ER for a likely heart attack!
Hoping the rest of the weekend goes smoothly
Hope you all had a great day!
