Just the Truth

We had a guy on the floor the other night who kept calling out instead of using his call light.  All night it was, “Hey, lady!” or “Nurse!” or just the plain “Anyone out there?!”  Usually he didn’t need anything, it was just an exercise in letting us know he was still there.

All things considered, I was happy he was more awake, considering he had crashed on us earlier the prior morning, but after 12 hours, his Jerry Lewis-esque voice was starting to grate on my (and everyone else’s) nerves.  Finally he called out, “Is there anybody out there?”

And something snapped, “Nope!” I yelled back.  Laughter enused all over the nurses station.

But he was quiet the rest of the morning, all 30 minutes of it.
