Medical staff story 1


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.
