Hershey's miniatures.

Man, they couldn't even use good chocolate to make up for the misspelled ghosting?

As a new nurse, I learned that some on-call physicians can be total A-holes when you call them with a legitimate concern about your patient.

However, I also learned NOT to give up just because the on-call physician is a jerk. I advocated strongly for my pt because she was heading towards a rapid response/potential code. I'm glad I stood my ground because I was was right and I was able to get the necessary orders for her.

I learned that I cherish & value my PCTs (CNAs) who work their butts off on night shift. They are wonderful and I appreciate everything they do.

I learned that caffeine is my best friend while adjusting to night shift.

I learned that I really do like working night shift :)

Robitussin is positively foul tasting. Like, worse than NyQuil tasting. It better live up to its promises so that I can get a good cough free sleepy time before work tomorrow.

I can't drink that. It makes me vomit. Literally.

2. Animals love me. People's cats will sit on me, dogs will curl up with me the first time they meet me... except my brother's neurotic dog, who hates me and growls every time I'm within 10 feet of him.

Same here. A reluctant patient once decided to sign on for services because her cat liked me.

I was telling her about Home Care services, she was skeptical. Until her cat sauntered into the room, rubbed against my leg and jumped up onto my lap.

She just looked at me and said, "Where do I sign?" Apparently her cat liked no one, even people she had known for years. She figured if the cat liked me enough to act outside her norm, then maybe this Home Care stuff was ok.

You remember those

? You know what the treatment for that is? Dextromethorphan. The active ingredient in Robitussin-DM.

Robitussin never worked for me. The only thing that works for me is Delsym. It doesn't taste awful either.
