Me: Who do I need to call about getting this patient down here b/c the OR wants them?
Her: Have you seen my baby (stare at FB)- he's so adorable.
Me: So...this patient has no consents for surgery and no one listed. Who should I call?
Her: My baby is adorable. I miss my baby.
Me: This woman on the phone wants to cancel a Friday surgery for her mom and she doesn't know the surgeon's name. What do I tell her since she apparently knows nothing and we don't know Friday's schedule yet?
Her: I miss my baby.
Me: I miss my bed but I still need to know what to do with this patient over here who has gone comatose all of the sudden & the CPR isn't working.
Her: Try again? I have to show so-and-so my baby pictures. Be there in a sec.
Me: I think the guy in the next bedspace is vomiting blood.
Her: (staring intently at baby pictures on FB)
So I do admit that I am exagerating some but that's about how I felt. I did almost all of the stuff tonight and handled pretty much all of the calls and transfers while she showed people baby pictures on FB. Sigh. I'm so thankful that, while my sister does take a lot of pictures, she doesn't get obnoxious about it.
