The pt I had this evening is recoving from a total knee replacement (she had surgery yesterday). Tonight, on his way to the hospital to visit her, her husband was in a car accident & brought to our ER, where he died. It was such a sad night & I felt so helpless. I have tried & tried to go to sleep, but I keep thinking about this poor lady & her family. I thought I would come here & find something to take my mind off of it. I just feel so terrible for this family. I guess in nursing you never know how your evening will go. Thanks for listening.
