Busy days are so common on a medical surgical floor that you barely notice when you miss a break. There was too many of those days. I had my assigned patients that I shared with my co-assigned RN. We had our usual scramble in the morning to pass our meds, do the physical assessments, treatments, and pass our meal trays. Much the same for the evening shift, although it was slightly less hectic, you never knew what might happen next.
