SCDs Rule the Land

SCDs like the lord of the land,
They squash out clots before they can even stand.
Like small critters running, clots disappear
For SCDs keep watch like a burly musketeer.
‘Pump, Pump, Pump!’ SCDs repeat
as they prepare to crush every DVT they meet.

Quelling Countdown Begins

The countdown begins like New Years Eve,
Twelve more hours until we can leave.
Gone will be 17, the one who won’t stop yelling
Who many patients wish the nurses would STAT start quelling.
Gone will be the family that won’t stop asking questions
The one I really just want to give a four letter suggestion.
Soon I will be free as a hind upon the mountain top
Hoping the next three days off will never end or stop.

C Diff Slain like a Dragon

Die, C diff die! You turn to shamble our patients.
Diarrhea and excoriation are your foundations.
To fight you like a Bleach Knight, we shall wash hands with delight
And die like a Dragon you will with a sword in you tight!
‘Huzzah! Huzzah!’ As one we all shouted,
Your death made immortal in great songs undoubted

C Diff’s Death Knell

C diff, C diff, like the scourge of the earth
You stick and you wait in your spore to give birth.
Undaunted by cleaners of regular variety
Only does bleach give you fear or anxiety.
Once born you are tough like hardy shoe leather,
And you cause diarrhea and ulcers together.
But beware C diff, your day is coming
When bleach flows as rain and your death knell starts thrumming.
So watch out for bleach wipes, it’s your devastation,
For then we can cry, ‘C diff is dead!’ with great jubilation!

Just Go Already

Alright time to decide if you have to go or not.
I am not here to sit and watch you on the pot.
Please let it loose like Niagara Falls
Or get back to bed and stop with the calls!

Fall Litigation

Hey there patient stay in bed
I don’t want you falling and hitting your head.
Then a bleed might ensue
and your family would be sure to sue.

Difficult to Please Family, Really?

I am so frustrated that you are unhappy
Your family member could die and all you care about are things stupid and crappie.
I talk to doctors, push IV meds, take their vitals umpteen times
And all you do is point out the dirt on the floor as if it were a crime
Well I am so sad to report that while saving their life
My skills as a housekeeper were slightly under strife

Satisfaction Driven Healthcare Fail

Dear patient family,

It’s one thing to ask for ice
But seriously asking for that much is just not nice.
I am nurse not a butler please take your request elsewhere,
Oh wait, I forgot, all our pay is based on satisfaction in healthcare.

With slightly jaded love,

Your extremely-busy-saving-your-family-member-from-near-death-and-you-are-unhappy-with-the-room-temperature Nurse
