I agree. I have been thinking the same thing.
Feb 6, '08I often have dreams that a patient will code and I will forget every bit of CPR training I have ever received and the patient will die due to my dumbness!! ZOIKS!:icon_roll
Feb 13, '08I have also dreamed about attempting to page someone and every time I tried to dial the pager number, I misdialed. I just kept attempting to dial and being unable.
I seldom dream about work though anymore.
Feb 13, '08I've had the forgotten patients dream lots of times, dang I wish i could leave work at work and out of my dreams!
Another one is when studying for ACLS or something, everyone I run into suddenly needs ACLS done to them. Or I keep punching 911 but hitting the wrong numbers.
Feb 13, '08I have that dream a lot, too. Usually it's just one patient, and it's the end of my shift. Once, my husband was trying to wake me up, and I must have been still dreaming because I asked him if he had any patients on drips.
I don't usually dream about work until the day before I go in. I like my job, for the most part, but apparently my subconscious mind doesn't.
Feb 13, '08I had to smile when I read this thread because I have been having some really weird dreams lately. I've had the dreams like everyone else where all of a sudden it's time for report and you realized that you haven't seen or cared for your patients all night, or the one's where you hear ventilator alarms and cardiac monitors going off in your head the entire time you sleep, but lately my dreams...wow.
The first one I dreamed a giant turd was chasing me. It was huge and I kept wondering how I could wade through it all. It had a mouth like a leech that kept coming after me!
The next one, I dreamed I was getting off work, and in order to leave, I had to walk through the doctor's night sleep room to leave. When I walked in, there was one of our regular ER doc's, laying on the bed, french kissing my dog!
The staff at work still laugh over that one!
