What a day...

Posted Sep 22 2008 4:36pm
Had the er today. It was cake. A few tx & an abg.

On the floor we coded a sweet LOL who was admitted 2 weeks ago for
cellulitis of her hand. She is a copder so she got atrovent q6. We got
to know her & like her alot.

Her husband was also a patient of ours who just passed away yesterday.

We got called to her room. Long story short, she is now intubated, in
the ICU.

Her family came in & said that she was supposed to be a dnr, but there
was nothing official in her chart.

How sad. Now she's trying to be with her husband. But, by god, we
don't let people die.

I am emotionally exhausted today. So it was chips, salsa & a glass of
wine for dinner.

Off to bed to do it all again tomorrow.
