The Life of a Nurse

This picture was taken several months ago during a 2 to 10pm shift at the hospital where I used to work. The photo very well describes a life of a nurse here in the Philippines. These are examples of the objects that we see and make use of everyday.

The stethoscope helps s assess our patient's vital signs. The calculator helps us accurately compute for the patient's proper intravenous and drug dosage. The bottle of IV fluid that we administer to clients who has any fluid and electrolyte imbalance or to keep the patient's vein open as prescribed by the doctor. A fresh unopened syringe that we always have in our pockets to be prepared for any emergency. The standard black, blue, and red pens that we use for proper documentations. An ipod, to keep us company. And a couple of cigarettes for those people that needs it for stress reduction.

But no matter how tiring the job is... At the end of the day, your overwhelmed of the feeling that you did something good for someone by making them feel better despite of their weak condition.
