martha stewart doesn't work here


Any day you see more cops than docs in the ER...it probably isn't a good thing.


Any day where you see more than one naked ass running down the hall with gown flapping wildly behind them as they dodge security...it probably isn't a good thing.


Any day where a psychotic eight year old uses your nurses aide's head as target practice from the top of an IV pole...it probably isn't a good thing.


Any day where you have so many people screaming at the top of their lungs in so many rooms that you can't even tell which is which...it probably isn't a good thing.


Any day you have to have a six person take-down of a violent patient, in the waiting room, for the love of god...it probably isn't a good thing.


Two down.


Three to go.


This probably isn't a good thing.

You really have weird medical patients in the States, RC. When are you going to write a book about it all? Oh no, you can't, can you? Something about the privacy of the patients? You keep hanging in there. Love your opening shot of old Martha.

Hang in there sweetie, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I think if Martha came and decorated the ER, it would be more soothing for people. Perhaps she could whip up some snacks, while they were waiting. Better yet, tranquilize them all, put it in the water. It would be so worth it......after all a nurse must keep her sanity. I think it is a job requirement or something. LOL.

Take care, I'll pray the days go quickly. You are an amazing nurse, don't forget that.

Ever hear the phrase 'it's so bad it's good'? This stuff is so off the wall it is almost funny. almost.

Hang in there, at least it is all happening at work, not in your house!
