A sweet little old Hispanic gal, fresh from open heart surgery, finally decided to take a Percocet at bedtime.
Two hours later she coded. The response was fast as the whole seventh floor was heart staff and always happy to help out at a code. Revived. She opened her eyes, looked intently into mine and said ” It was the pill.”
She was moved to the SCC, the ICU for open heart. I would miss her. Fortunately for me, I was soon invited to work in this unit. I was very happy to be there.
