Peds ED staff are especially used to dealing with frustrated people, as the parents of sick or injured children are often hard to please, even when there is no… Read more
I also want to hug the Corgis. We are of one mind on all of the above.
This was the toughest week we’ve had at work, with record numbers of patients and nowhere to put them. We started the week seeing roughly 50 patients at a time in our 22 bed ED, and by Tuesday, we had been boarding admitted patients overnight in the PACU, or as most people know it, the recovery area where people go…

You are always welcome at backtalkvillage.blogspot.com. Rooo is there, and it's basically just comments. Moderators post a couple times a day with conversation starters and we chat.
