I had an interesting experience 2 nights ago. I work days and one of my best buddies from nursing school works nights and got my group of patients. She asked me "What needs doing?" at around 1850 or so. I said, "Don't worry-go do your pt research...I'll be ok." She then insisted on helping. So the 2 of us worked together to tie up loose ends, visited pts, rooms, I reported off to her and I stayed and helped her till she was up and running....maybe 20 minutes. It was fun, without rancor, smooth, and perhaps the easiest and most graceful passoff of pts I've ever done. I wish every day could be like that!
