Code Blue. Pediatric. First Floor. Room So-And-So.
as I was getting ready to leave work today, I heard the announcement over the PA. it’s a stat patient emergency. it’s just not fair, to see these little ones being pulled around the hospital in colorful stickered up wagons, dragging IV’s behind them, as if it were a puppy. they look so frail and drawn, so you have an idea of what treatments they’ve endured so far.
a bad day does not consist of forgetting your .65 $ for coffee.
as I exited the floor, my eyes welled.
it’s just not right!
