    I dread the mornings when I walk in to the unit and there is nobody is sight. No one charting at the desk, no one answering the phones, no residents giving handoff, no one finishing their flowsheets at the tables outside their patient's rooms.

    When there is no one in sight, I know the night was so bad that they are all still super busy at 7am. It pretty much guarantees my morning will be rough too.

    Or when you walk into ICU, there's not a soul in sight, and both crash carts are outside a single room....that's called, "we went thru everything in the first one, and we're still going..."

    I dread walking into the ER and only a couple of pts on the board - and the next nearest hospital goes on divert.

    I walked in one morning, a brand new, SICK baby in the 1st slot, ALS nurse on her way to another delivery, and families milling around in the hallway outside the nursery and L&D. Put my purse down and started working on the sick kid; when the dust finally settled (as the Transport Team drove away w/the sick one) and L&D slowed down, it was 11:30 already. I looked at the mess and said, "All this and NO COFFEEE????" We all just laughed!
