What a Weekend!
I hope you wonderful Easter weekend! I did not. I have decided that none of my patients are allowed to have bowel movements again. Ever. We had one get up, use the facilities, go back to bed and code. At. shift. change. It always happens at shift change. The next evening I had a patient preparing for a colonoscopy, get up, sit on the toilet and pass out. At. shift. change. I basically put in 40 hours in 3 days. So this is my lesson to you all, be wary of going to the bathroom. It is a scary place--especially for your nurse.
