Feed the Nurse Campaign

It was a fun but tiring day today at our duty. I had two patients one suffering from an infection in the brain and the other was having gallstones.

I just did the usual thingamajigs at duty, got the vital signs (a.ka. Blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate), changed the linens, gave medications, documented the activity on the patient's chart. It was already becoming a routine for me, I became more and more efficient at doing the job every week.

Well, what made this day different are my patients. Truly heaven sent! One gave me an orange,a pack of skyflakes and a packet of Fita. I tried to refuse but they still insisted. Who was I to refuse such blessings?

The one mentioned above happened in the morning, I recieved another gift from my other patient at lunch time. This time, I was just about to monitor vital signs and they asked me if I could join them eat their lunch.

BTW, I was really hungry that time, it was past one and I still haven't taken my lunch break.

So there they insisted again, but of course I refused again by saying that I just ate my lunch. Sometimes nurses can be hypocrites.LOL Anyway,  I just took the vital signs as fast as I could and before I could even grab my things, they already stuffed my hands with 5 bananas. "Sige tanggihan mo pa yan, mag tatampo na talaga kami", the relative said. I quipped, "Naku, nakakahiya naman po..." but deep inside I was like, "THANK YOU PO! Grabe saktong sakto di pa ako kumakain ng lunch!" I know its like being patay gutom but who am I again to refuse?

I'm just so happy that my patients apprieciate what I do to them.

I remember when i was hospitalized because of dengue.. Bwisit yung mga intern na nurses.. pag tusok ng karayom sa braso ko, pag di nila masapol yung vein, todo halukay ang mga hinayupak habang nakabaon pa ang karayom.. sobrang sakit ampotah..ganun ba talaga pag kinukunan ng blood sample?

buti na lang may isang cute na guy nurse na nag aalaga sa akin..napadali ang paggaling ko.. wahahaha..

Drei said...

@fox ohh.. baka med tech un? Sila usually kumukuha ng blood samples, hindi nurses. hehe

haha! so nakadepende sa pagmumuka ng nurse ang paggaling ng pasyente?haha! Kung ganon, bsta ako marami ako napapagaling.lol

@pusang kalye: May naiimmagine ako sa sinabi mo. LOL!

Ako naman nung na Typhoid ako nung bata pa ako, naputol ng nurse yung karayom (anung tawag dun sa hose na galing dextrose na ikakabit sa pasyente?) nung hose no dextrose. Ayun, nung dumating yung doctor, doctor na ang nagkabit, cute nga yung doctor e. Babae nga pala yung nurse na nakabali ng karayom sa kaliwang palad ko.

Oo, tama, importante sa buhay natin ang mga nurse, kung hindi dahil sa mga nurse, mahirp maging pasyente at mas mahirap magkasakit kapag na confine, ang hirap kaya maging nurse, sa dami ng pasyente at sa hirap ng ginagawa nila.
