You and your ER, you're crazy! Mom and I were saying the other day it's crazy that you're a "real" nurse now (RN, done with school). Those were some crazy, sad stories (except the stroke victim, that's good).
I'm glad you love what you do :-)

Hey Steph! I am so glad you like the ER. I don't know if I told you but I am going to be working at St Marks. I am excited and am glad that I am done with school! By the way your wedding picture is so cute!

Gotta love TPA. I hadn't given it in the first 2 years of being an RN, and then in the last 6 months I have given it 3 times and 1 time it was just like that as well. It is amazing. I hate when people come in after having stroke symptoms for several days and you can do nothing. I agree that the ER is the best place to work!

You're a weirdo! Who in their right minds would like that stuff? I could totally do the pregnant woman though! :)

Never a dull night in the ER huh? I have crazy hospital stories too, but not as crazy as yours. I never post them though, for fear of HIPPA. P.S. I am anxiously awaiting your high school survey post. Nat did one too...talk about a walk down memory lane.

Great post, Steph. It sounds like the ER definitely keeps you hopping. My patient last week had an acute CVA right after an angio and we had to transfer him to ICU so he could have TPA. And, is it Lisinopril that causes the random allergic reaction? We had a patient two weeks ago on the floor who had been taking the med forever and just developed a reaction. Crazy! My grandpa's brother died after getting run over by a tractor. Terrible, terrible. Anyway, I'm so glad that you are having fun with your job.
