A Quick Comment on Nurse Managers

A Nurse Manager who wears scrubs to work = Nice

A Nurse Manager who will step in and take patients when things are crazy = Priceless

Recovery Room Quote of the Day

A cranky older gentleman when informed that he must wait until he is transferred to Phase II recovery to get dressed and leave:

"You call this a hospital? It's more like a laboratory."

Follow up: In my report to the Phase II nurse, I mentioned that the patient was "a little grouchy". The Phase II nurse stopped by later and accused me of giving her a grossly inaccurate report. She said "Grouchy was not the word. That guy was actually an asshole".  Ahhh...technicalities. Tomato/tomaahto. I guess one person's grouchy is another person's asshole.
