Todays Blue

16 Feb

So today the patient in the room next to one of my patients goes into respiratory…well arrest…she stopped breathing!  So the code was called and the response team came which of course included the RT–so the RT is bagging the patient and the House Doc arrives and says “Where is the RT?” Everyone was like duh…bagging the patient.

Anyway the outcome was actually ok this time.

    This kind of reminds me of the show ER, where the doctors do all of RTs work. But, occasionally, the doctor gets annoyed and yells, “Where the hell is respiratory.”

    That happens all the time. I can’t count how many times I’ve been bagging someone when the MD asks “Where is respiratory?” One would think that they’d look at the head of the bed first, but such is life…

    Had this happen to me the other day. It’s amazing, really. Where else would respiratory be?
