Wild weekend

  1. Thursday there was a 86 car pile up on I-75. 4 dead on scene. Initial reports were my hospital could get any where from 50-75 pts They began the 'disaster plan' and started clearing out the units. We got 39.....10 critical (if I'm not mistaken), 5 still in critical condition. 1 more passed away.

    The past 3 days we have 5 codes on my floor. 3 made it 2 didn't....only 1 of the codes was a transfer out of the unit from Thursday.

    I guess that is why we are called wild west wing 3, uhh?

    God bless you and good luck, the whole world should acknowledge you and your healthcare facility for your good works.

    Misti, Mary here, your neighbor over in NC. I heard about that accident on the news and kept following the story online. Such a tragedy. Good to know wonderful nurses like you were there to help. Take care and God bless you.

    Misti, do you work at Erlanger? I was already at work when the accident happened, and wondered where all of those folks would go. I saw the video on the 11 p.m. news that night-what a mess! They were fortunate to have you all to help them!
    Plus, I think a 3:2 ratio on codes is pretty darned good!
