I've had this picture floating around and could not come up with a post that equals what it illustrates. I catch myself staring at it and daydreaming of the old days before patients were customers and hospitals became health care centers. It's so much nicer than that previous traumatic illustration. What was I thinking?
Caps, Rotary dial telephone, paper charts, and nurse attentively viewing a cathode ray tube monitor. I think I just heard that distinctive air bubble gurgle from a vented glass IV bottle as it infuses.
I remember those cathode ray monitors... we called ours "Ollie"!ReplyDelete
I love the pretty cap on the nurse at the front - when nurses looked like nurses!ReplyDelete
I remember them all as angels of mercy. Even the old cranky ones with bad backs.ReplyDelete
Jono, that's kind of you to remember them in such a good light. Nursing students were the favorite target of abuse for the older battle hardened veteran nurses. My fingers still ache when I think of Alice my OR supervisor. She could swing a sponge stick with impressive knuckle busting force. OUCHReplyDelete
