SOB is right

If you can breathe and move well enough to stand up on your stretcher and scream at the top of your lungs for narcotics.........

.......you are well enough to be discharged.

You should have shoved the peak flow meter in his mouth to prove his lungs were at maximum capacity.

So pray tell, what was the disposition of said maling....er po' folk!??!?
Once after I had all I could stand from/about a patient; I jokingly stated, "I love humanity; its people I can't stand."
That statement was over heard by my superviser....who spluttered, "but we HAVE TO LOVE EVERYBODY!!!!!"
Yeah right.....thats why I no longer work for that libtard.

Monkey Girl, you and Nurse K MAKE MY DAY. I am not in medicine, but I read both your blogs and mostly laugh, sometimes cry, but always, always am impressed and grateful that you take the time to write about your job with wit and wisdom. I love that the internet makes it possible for someone like me to read what you write about (and yes, i know that ending a sentence with a preposition is very, very bad).
