if a little old man poseyed into a geriatric chair is struggling manfully to open the door to the stairwell, do not help him to open the door.

[color=#4b0082]do not volunteer to transport your patient to ct scan unless you're prepared to actually pay attention to the patient while on your road trip. nurses get rather surly when you bring them back a dead patient while enthusing about what a "cool ct scan" it was! nurses get downright ugly the second time you do this!

One of the moments when nursing school all started to click? The day I had to do a project at a free clinic with a bunch of first year med students, one 4th year, and a MD. Before the patients came, I was in the back teaching the first year students how to take a BP and finger stick. WOW! I felt so smart! -Andrea
