ICU Christmas song

To illustrate a typical week in our unit...

On the first day of Christmas my charge nurse gave to me...
5 GI bleeds !
4 trauma patients
3 guys on vents
2 ODs
and the bastard with DTs !

Sound familiar to anyone?!

I was going to say that it sounds like one shift in my ER, but I'd be lying, mine isn't that bad! LOL! : )

Hey, just because I've been given the nickname "angel of death" at work doesn't mean it's all my fault...I just take all the dying patients! :-)
