    LOL! I wish I had me one of them maniquins (Sp?) I do love listening to the patients . . . the highlight of the day, but if I have alot o do it is sort of crazy. Most of the time, I would politely say, "I would really love to hear more about it, but I have to get back to work," They would say something like, "Oh okay, come back later and I will tell you all about my dogs, my house, my dead husband and how he died, my horses, my cats, the storms that I have lived through, when I got thrown from a horse, I'll even give you advice on how to raise sheep, and could you stay with me for just 5 more minutes."

    I would like to suggest a tube system that goes from the nursing station to each of the patient rooms. Need a blanket? A popsicle? No problem- I'll just tube it to you. Oh, you have that stool sample ready? OK, just tube it to me. (In the collector with the lid on, of course). You have some questions? OK, just write them down and tube them to me- I'll tube you the answers when I get a chance. OK, I was daydreaming a bit.
