No more pokies for you

Tonite I had the pleasure of taking care of a lovely lady who made my shift almost enjoyable. Unfortunately I had the displeasure of poking her finger to check her blood sugar (though not a diabetic - with a stroke you can get high blood sugar readings and so we will often check their sugar for several days to ensure that the stroke hasn't affected the ability to control their glucose/insulin levels ) and it's been checked for long enough to know that her levels are JUST FINE....

so since she was such a peach about everything I figured that I would give back and talk to the MRP on her behalf and get her blood sugar checks discontinued....

which she was insanely appreciative about - hell she almost hugged me! Made for some great times!

THIS is one of the reasons why I love my job! Especially when it's something within my power to accomplish.

  1. I love when people are so happy about the little teensy things we do and it makes up for the million and one people who attempt to verbally abuse or physically assault us the other days we are at work. Seriously, 1 good patient can make work bearable for months! I am so happy that you were able to take care of such a sweet lady to appreciate the great work you do and to make your day a bit better!
