  1. Angels Exist in Nurses

    I can not forget one staff nurse, whom I think of as a terror one, but created the most impact in my life and practice as a nurse... I really don't like this certain staff nurse, who is at her mid 40's perhaps. She really looks stern and she always s...
  2. First Night Duty in Labor Room

    After finishing student life in nursing, this was my first duty in labor room by myself. Because of the very limited staffs in the hospital, they used to schedule a maximum of two staffs at night, and that night I was alone because the other staff wa...
  3. A Very Special Bond

    I was only 21 years old when I started my nursing career. I love babies. They have a very special place in my heart. I specialized in Maternal and Newborn Nursing. I have delivered and assisted more than 2000 babies for my nine years and a half year ...

    When the Mother Is in Prison

    Prisoners get a very short hospital stay - for a normal vaginal delivery, the woman goes back to the prison the next day, most often in under 24 hours. For a Cesarean delivery, the woman goes back to the prison infirmary on post-op day two. This tran...
  5. Without another thought, I was thrown into the mix. Deliveries, I had help with but the normal day to day stuff I quickly learned on my own. In those days we not only did OB but we had a floor full of "clean surgical" cases that we were responsible f...

    Misadventure in a Maternity Hospital. There is probably no maternity hospital that is as busy as the one I went to during training. It's jam-packed with patients and it's like a newborn factory. Anybody who would want to have exposure to maternal and...
  7. I Don't Remember His Name

    A feeling of dread consumed me as I walked to room 418. I took a deep breath and knocked lightly on the door before quietly stepping into the patient's room. There, laying in the middle of the bed was a young African American woman. Besides the swell...

  9. The Delivery

    Or not. Many years ago, I was a labor and delivery RN at a county medical hospital, serving a large population. The hospital only had 3 delivery rooms with one delivery room, that all the nurses hated; it was small and around the corner; kind of hard...
  10. The Inside Culture

    It's now a decade and he is past gone, my inside is that I should care for other insides. I prefer to live with what he used to tell me, "Son the inside matters." I don't want to imagine how two races from that far could meet and produce me... I thin...
  11. Doctor Loses Pants

    He loved delivering babies as well as caring for the old. Most of his deliveries were smooth, quiet, and usually uneventful (except for the expected event of having a wonderful newborn, of course). Where the other physicians changed to a clear gel fo...
  12. Our Littlest Patient

    In my past, that news would not be considered nerve-wracking. This time my adrenaline was pumping as I jumped into the shower. I work in a small rural hospital, on the border of Canada, and we don't have those kinds of deliveries here very often. In ...
