Ripped Panty Hose

8 Jan

You can’t control the runners in ripped control top nylons.

Providing a small sense of control to a patient during their most vulnerable state of being: ‘No, I can not remove the peripheral intravenous catheter that is infusing critical medications into your blood stream and I can not remove this blood pressure cuff but would you like your telephone here or there?’

When I go home, I try to put the spoons in the right spot to get the same feeling, but it never really feels quite the same.

    “And again: I wear control type panty hose under my scrub pants and run to the bathroom…” I’m glad you said that twice because I had to read it four times to believe you actually wrote it! Classic.

    I couldn’t stop laughing.But then,I started thinking as well.I have often thought about the life
    of nurses and occasionally,written about it.After years of systematic entries and re entries,life gets tuned to it.I wonder how your working environment is,and would like to know.
    You could become a writer.
