My shift began with Carl James, a 55-year-old man who has cancer .
Herang his buzzer three times in a row .
First to ask for water, then for hismedicine, then for an extra blanket .
On my third trip ,I wanted to wring his neck , but instead,
I took the time to spend a few minutes withhim .
"My kids didn't come and see me at all yesterday ,"he told me.
"And my wife has been so busy at work that she only stopped in for
a little while .
"Then I understood：Carl was lonely . I made small efforts for the rest
of my shift to stop into his room and visit with him ,
which was probably all he wanted in the first place.
I had a similar incident later in the morning with an older woman
recovering from a mild stroke.
She's always too hot or too cold or hungry or thirsty.
She always seems confused about everything .
She doesn't seem to remember that she's actually already eaten lunch or
that someone has given her meds . She's a tricky one .
Sometimes the best way to deal with her is to just agree with her ,
"Yes, Mrs . Stevenson. OK, Mrs. Stevenson ."
As if this wasn't enough , I had to prepare 27-year-old Sidney Turner for
He was having his appendix out .
I've done lots of OR prep, and it isn't usually a problem .
However, I think Sidney is a heroin addict , and he's been in the hospital
for almost a week and is going through some form of withdrawal .
He's really moody and angry .
He yelled at me today because I dropped an empty bedpan ,
which made a loud noise that startled him .
"What kind of nurse are you anyway?"he asked .
I think the best way to deal with these kinds of situations is just to ignore
the comment .
If I had engaged in a conversation with Sidney, I would have become
emotional and lost my cool .

我的轉移從卡爾・詹姆斯, 有癌症的一個55 歲的人開始了。
首先請求水, 然後為hismedicine, 然後為一條額外毯子。
在我的第三次旅行,I 想絞他的脖子, 但是反而,
"是, 夫人。Stevenson 。好, Stevenson 夫人。"
好像這不足夠, 我必須27 年的Sidney 特納為做準備
但是, 我認為Sidney 是吸毒者, 並且他是在醫院
