25 years of crazy stuff to remember:
CB radio communications only with snowmobiles transporting nurses, docs and patients to hospitals during blizzards. (My Minnesota days
Moving all my ICU patients to the central hallway (bagging my vents and asking visitors to help) while tornados were all around the hospital. One family I remember was angry and said "How can you take care of my mother out here in the hall?" . I replied my priority at the moment was to keep the tornado from killing her in a window-walled ICU.
Caring for victims of the Delta jet crash here in Dallas in the mid 80's...some my age may remember. It was a circus...some awesome survivors whose stories and bravery I'll always remember...and those who came out without a scratch, but played it up for media/lawsuits. I hated dodging reporters while trying to do my job, and dealing with malingerers when there were critically ill people to care for.
A bomb threat...all the administrators left the building...(no big surprise there) the nurses and firemen searched for the bomb, which never materialized.
Numerous power outages which are always fun in ICU with all the vents, etc. What's not fun is when the backup generator fails too....
No major fires...just smoldering wastebaskets or overheated wires (thank God) . A major fire would be the scariest of all to me....just the thought makes me sweat.
