I had a nice day at work. How can that be you ask? I worked at a different hospital, my moonlighting hospital. The floors are clean, it’s well lit, everyone is friendly. The nursing staff is treated well, we have ample technician and aid support. Triage orders x-rays on boo-boos, EKGs right in the triage room, abdominal pain and chest pain protocols are sent off, I get handwritten faxed reports of CT scans 15 minutes after they were ordered.

It’s night and day compared to my usual place. I’m not quite ready to say that St. Dreamy Hospital is where you want to be when you’re having chest pain, but it’s close. In might even be worth crossing town to be seen there…
