Another Intern story
Another nurse friend sent me this one. I thought it was really funny.
A very ill patient had just peacefully passed away. The charge nurse called the covering night Intern and asked him to do the “final assessment” and pronouce the patient’s death (write the necessary progress note, call the attending physician and family, fill out the necessary paperwork, follow up with pathology, etc). Apparently, this very new Intern had never done this before. He assessed the patient as asked, looked a little bewildered . . . then made the sign of the Cross with this right hand and said, “I now pronounce you dead”.
Good luck out there. And remember to stay healthy for, well at least a few more months.
