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

Hold Your IV

That IV you say, no way to keep it?
I will make sure that you do I commit.
That Doc ordered it, it has to stay
I feel unfortunately that your opinion will not sway.
So I wrap and wrap and wrap away,
That Kerlex will unlikely hold you at bay.

Slow Discharge

Discharge is not ready,
Yes I know the Doc said you are free already!
However, I have paperwork to do for you
So please hold up and I will soon be through

Security Stat

Security please come this patients gone crazy
I swear its not me being angry or lazy.
They’re kicking and throwing and all out of sorts
The way they are looking, I might mess my shorts.

Telemetry Punch

Telemetry,
How I would like to punch thee
Your beep and you boop,
It happens again and again in a loop
Today I think I’ll give you my boot
