Theme of the day....

Alright everybody...let's have some fun

In the ED I work in we try to come up with a daily theme..something humerous, apathetic...a little cynicsm helps. like: "we can't cure what you can't spell"... get the idea?

I notice that our theme days revolve around what presents the most, like appy day, CP day, stupid day, German day (those pts with germanic last names) Hispanic day, etc. And I say we are running a special on CP's on Monday's or that we have the Free Beer & Pizza sign out front to encourage people to sign in with minor complaints that they've had for a llllloooonnnnngggg time.

AMEN! And I don't really care how you get home just that you go away with your discharge information & RX & no we are not the diner, so don't ask for toast with jelly to go with your AM meds. Gee, would you like your toast cut into squares or triangles?:lol2:

I have decided that all ED nurses are cut from the same mold because so many of the topics we discuss here are exactly how things go in my own dept. We always come up with a theme for the day...LOL

We play name that rhythm and take bets on calling it..when the cardilogist comes it what ever he rules determines who wins. Yesterday we had a tricky one..it was a regular rhythm ventricular rate 110 no ectopy each qrs appeared to have the same p wave in front of it, we ran and ekg which showed a pr interval .189 pt had been in afib and was on cardizem drip I was betting sinus tachycardia..I lost .. somehow there was another p wave I couldn't pick up and the doctor ruled atrial flutter 2/1 conduction.

Yesterday must have been "Dementia Day". I have never seen so many confused people in the ED at one time.

"I was drinking and..." day :beer: or how about

"Bring a tazer to work day!":devil:

We thought about getting long sleeved t-shirts with "Your tazer certified nurse" printed on the sleeves. That should get some people's attention in the ED who like to come in & raise hell while drunk & otherwise impaired.:lol2: :devil:

I like that one and will use it at work this week.

Today there must have been a sign out front that said we running a special on female-of-child-bearing-age abdominal pain - complete with pelvic exams. If I did one, I must have did 101! Even ran out of culture kits and had to get more from the lab!
