Quote of the Night

From the sweet little old lady with the nastiest UTI I have seen in a long time (forget pus- she had something resembling soupy KFC Mashed Potatoes in her bladder), after listening for 2 hours to the drunks and psychos and generally unpleasant not-sick freaks:

"It's like a torture chamber down here, honey. How do you do it?"

Sometimes I wonder that myself.

I suspect a paycheck has something to do with it... And knowing that you are helping...

I remember being in a room in the ER and finally yelling at the drunk guy across the hall from me to shut up because there was they were not going to take the catheter out and he wasn't getting out of restraints anytime soon. While I am sure the nursing staff was probably annoyed, the guard and the police officer outside his room thought it was hysterical.
