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.
