Sound of Sedation

" Sound of Sedation"

Hello patient, my old friend

You're on the call bell once again

You're still calling, nothing to say

I could be surfing on eBay

But now you're snoring

and no one's turning blue

Woo, woo, woo

This is the sound... of sedation

* * *

I gave them all some benadryl

Some get IV, some get a pill

Patients sleeping without puking

Held the Colace, no one's pooping

Now they're all snoring

So, no one's turning blue

Woo, woo, woo

This is the sound... of sedation

* * *

***ahh... what we do when patients are sleeping.

...and we breathe.

glad to hear no one turned blue. that seems to put a damper on the eBay surfing.

*no disrespect to those that have turned blue...you were more important than any bid.

I'm surprised you can get ebay at work. I have internet access where I work, but they restrict ebay and other social networking sites. They haven't blocked blogspot yet so I can still read blogs, but rumor is they're taking all internet access away from us again soon. Really, how do they expect us to stay awake at night?

Jenni- shh. don't tell anyone.

Lori- Woe be the nightshifters if they ever do away with internet completely! Oh horrible night!
