Me – nurse september 20, 2008

Filed under: nursing,tanker,work — craftymim @ 11:15 pm

The other day at work, we had a MET call (Medical Emergency Team), our patient had dropped her gcs significantly. She was admitted a few days earlier with a suspicion of a CVA, her symptoms had resolved but for a little tingeling in a finger. Overnight the night staff had noticed slurred speech, low sats and she was not able to coordinated the movements of her arms. They had her revieved severel times, but nothing eventuated.

This morning, she crashed, and we ended up intubation her – and then the real reason for this post, after 8+ years of nursing and having trained BLS (Basic Life Support/CPR) for years and recently teaching and assesssing it too – I finally got to bag someone!

Its not sick to be excited about that is it…
