A Pill?

She came in with a "bump on the head", a sore throat, and a baby in her belly (which meant a visit to the birthing floor, not the ER).

She thought that, maybe, her bump was causing her sore throat. (Ahem, huh?) After being cleared "OB-wise" (aka, nothing wrong pregnancy or baby related), doctor's orders were that she was to be released from our floor to go to the ER.

"Hmmm", said she. "I don't really want to go to the ER. Don't you just have a pill you could give me?"

Uh...no.

  1. Just came across your blog, and as luck would have it, on the SAME day I was thinking, "Gee, I need to find some nurse-y blogs" (I'm a Naval Officer with a Marketing degree working on a second career!) AND I just finished clinicals on the Womens Center and FELL IN LOVE with L&D!!! So thanks for the awesome timing! Anyway, I recently had a baby daddy come to the nurse's station asking for Sudafed FOR HIMSELF because he thought he was coming down with something and didn't want to give it to all the babies!!! Argh! Just go home, dude!
