I snorted cocaine at the Er
I have learned and seen some crazy things at the Er but yesterday toped them all. Being a nurse for the last 5 yrs still qualifies me as a new nurse not a seasoned one. So when I saw an order on my screen that said cocaine nasal at bedside for doctor I was floored. What!? Really that says cocaine right I ask the season nurse sitting bedside me. Yes you haven't heard of that? Umm no. What the heck is it used for. So to educate those that don't know it's a great vasoconstrictor. The patient had a really bad nose bleed and the older doctors still use it to control the bleeding. Wow is all I could say. I would have a field day with that had i been the patient. I have a legal reason to have crack in my system...lol or hey everyone I went to the Er and snorted cocaine legally lol. I know I am sick. But hey that would be funny As hell. Dear mom I promise i never did drugs till yesterday in the Er I snorted cocaine. It was great. Could you see your mom now?? Mine would still bust my ass. Still learning new things everyday.
