If we were allowed to wear a T-shirt with a slogan on what would you choose? Some days (especially after working in ED) I favor...
I am NOT
A) A waitress
B) Your personal slave
C) A magician
"DIY - helps me, helps you"
"I may be a nurse but I'm still only human"
"Supernurse - able to leap high bedpans in a single bound"
"Be nice - we can be friends or enemas"
"Please and thank-you get you soooo much more!"
I cannot read your mind for those days when pts fail to tell you they are in agony until their bellies get there, then they start whining that 'the nurse hasn't given me anything for pain', or the one that forgets to mention that he's allergic to penicillin/aspirin/elastoplast until after it's prescribed and prepared for administration.
I only have two hands for the pts who can see your arms are full of urine-soaked sheets yet still choose just that moment to ask you to fluff their pillows.
I actually saw this t-shirt for sale and should have bought it because I haven't even seen it again.
"Do you want to speack to the DOCTOR in charge or the NURSE who knows what's going on?"
As you can see I liked it so much (and have found it to be so true) I had to use it for my signature too.
Here to save your butt, not kiss it. should have bought it.

I saw a nurse today in the ED with feet walking up the back of her legs and back. I just howled.

"Busting ours to save yours?"
Somebody bought me one that said "Lie flat on your back, and do what the nice nurse tells you to do"
