8 nurses

Feliz aniversario casada! Pra provar o meu amor, toma aqui o nosso garoto zuadinho <3

Isn’t it amazing that my wife’s birthday is right in the middle of Nursey Week?? This is her birthday present, because she is basically one of the best things that ever happened to me <3

NurseyDex are v. tired after a late night studying. Smh bros are catching on to them and are delighting in chirping the new couple. Nurse is probably still asleep in his cocoon. Dex is grumpy and his shirt is buttoned crooked, but pancakes are more important.

Oh and Chowder’s braces are off! Yaaaay.

Nurse: Hey, Doc - your patient is GCS 8.

Me: …uh, what?

Nurse: yeah. He’s not responding to me at all, doesn’t follow commands –

Me: He doesn’t speak English, and I think he’s a sexist bag of dicks? He ignored me, too.

Nurse: oh.

Nurse:

Nurse: So. If he stays GCS 8 because he won’t listen to me…?

Me: No, we cannot punitively intubate him.

Me: Being a sexist dick is not an indication for intubation.

Nurse: … lame.

Being In a Mental Hospital

Sometimes, I have been asked what it is like to be in a mental hospital and what are they like – that’s why I decided to write about the subject. I tried to shorten the text but it’s still quite long.

Ending up in a mental hospital doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. It seems that for most people, when they hear the term “mental hospital”, “psychiatric hospital”, “psych ward”, or “asylum”, they automatically think it is a scary, isolated building with insane, violent people and cruel doctors who use harmful medication, restraints and does torturous experiments to their patients. Mental hospitals are not like that. Well, maybe in horror movies, but not in real life…

Mental hospitals can often feel like institutions, but in the end, that’s exactly what they are… Some people feel like it’s a safe place but some can feel like it is a prison, even it’s not. It is understandable that someone is scared, when someone needs to go to a mental hospital, especially if it is her/his first time being in one… But in the end, it is a place where you can get help and proper treatment, whatever it is you are dealing with!

If you are a minor, you are most likely being sent to an adolescent psych ward, which can be a little different place than a psych ward for adults but still, basically the same. Everything you bring with you or whatever anyone brings to you will be inspected for forbidden items and the staff will confiscate them from you during your stay at the psych ward. Forbidden items includes: wires of any sort (including chargers for electronic devices), medication (the staff will give you the medication you need), anything sharp, like glass, knives, shavers and even tweezers among other things. You can bring your own clothes, but with some restrictions – too revealing clothing or clothing with references to violence or drugs are forbidden. You’re usually allowed to have visitors, and they can bring you things like books, clothes and food (something else than hospital food).

There is at least one isolation room where a person can be taken to if she/he is behaving aggressively. The isolation room is quite small and there are nothing more than a mattress on the floor with a pillow, a blanket and a camera on the upper corner of the room. In the place where I was, the toilet was in another room, for our own safety (I suppose). The restraints are only used in serious cases if the patients are at immediate harm to themselves or others.

When you get your own room, you usually will be roomed with at least one other person of your gender. All sorts of people are sent in a mental hospital with all sorts of mental problems, which can be scary sometimes. But people usually starts to adjust to the environment they are put in so it’s good to know it does get easier!

The wake-up is around 8 a.m. and a nurse comes to wake you up. There will be medication times and meal times regularly. The dining room reminded me of a school cafeteria but much smaller. There were three meals throughout the day at specific times and a snack break/coffee break. The medication times were usually after breakfast, snack break/coffee break and supper. What can I say about the food? Well, it’s the same processed food they serve in institutions – not too bad but not too good…

During a stay at the hospital, there are typically strict rules and a tight schedule. This is to ensure that people receive the help and routine they need. I remember the rules being stricter and a tighter schedule in the adolescent psych ward, but this probably is because we were all minors. In the adult psych ward, there are more free time between meal times, doctor appointments, family therapy sessions and activities, when you can watch TV, read magazines and books, socialize with the other people, play cards, etc. In the adolescent ward we needed to go to bed around 8 p.m. but in the adult psych ward we could stay up later.

At least where I have been, you couldn’t have your cigarettes in the adolescent psych ward and they were confiscated by thew staff, it was forbidden to smoke and there were no smoking room. In the adult psych ward you could have your cigarettes and there’s a room just for smoking…

Being in the mental hospital is being in a place where you are under a constant supervision, by a psychiatric nurse, a psychiatrist, etc. The nurses are there to help you 24/7, even at nights. Most of them were nice, but they were all people so there were also some not so nice nurses. I sometimes had a nurse to come and get me to sit down and talk with me, asking me how I had been or take me outside for a walk in case I was not allowed to go outside on my own. There are checks every now and then. There were more checks in the adolescent psych ward than adult psych ward.

You will see a doctor at times who will ask you how you have been and you can discuss your situation with him/her. The doctor can make changes to your medication if she/he thinks it’s best for you. At times, there will be family meetings where the patient, the doctor, a nurse and the patient’s family/relatives would all meet in the same room and talk about what was going on, why they were there, goals, etc. Getting privileges, like getting a chance to go outside for a walk alone or getting a weekend vacation, requires good behavior. The doctor makes the decision about giving you privileges along with the other staff members who are assigned to treat you during your stay in the mental hospital. The doctor also makes the decision to let you out.

Being in a mental hospital can be not as intimidating as one might think. There always seems to be a reason when a person goes/are sent in a mental hospital – voluntarily or involuntarily. In the end, a mental hospital is not a prison even it may feel like one for some people. But it is always good to remember that you will not be treated like a criminal, because you’re not criminally insane – the whole point is to help the person with a mental illness to get better. You are not being sent there for the rest of your life, but only as long so you’re well again! As harsh it may sound, but mental hospitals try to get people out as soon as possible, which means they won’t keep you there forever! Most people needs to stay there at least 72 hours period which is three days.

Mental hospitals can vary about what they are like and what kind of staff they have. Also, depending are you sent there with a voluntary or an involuntary referral, can have a huge influence on how the whole experience will make you feel. The first impression can be negative if someone is forced into a mental hospital against their will. But it can feel bad at first even if you have not forced to go there because it’s a whole new surroundings – but you can leave there with a whole new attitude than what you first go there with, which can be a positive one!

If you still have something to ask about mental hospitals or what it is like to be in one, if I didn’t noticed to write about something, you can ask me about the subject by sending me a message. :)

Whew. Iggy with that knife. Just reminds me one weapon is called assassin daggers(10% chance to poison). Like studying to be Nocts advisor and cooking aside, he's an assassin incase anyone wants to harm Noct(How did he know Noct snuck out often if not watching). He KNOWS how to kill a person yet we'd never guess. Cooking comes in handy to kill by poison/allergies, knowing what knife is best for what/cutting techniques, and proper cleaning to hide it all. It's a good coverup for Iggy too.

I feel like I’m on a roll. Iggy’s family is a family of assassins. Iggys uncle didn’t want to be apart of the family business so he found respectable work at the Citidal. Iggy’s father died due to work and his mother, concerned about people coming after him, sent Iggy to his uncle while young. Iggy questions what happened when older and finds out his familys backgroud. So he tries to live a better life but still learns assassin skills(for Nocts sake and in memory) while not getting too deep.

Okay, so…

Anon, you got me hella hyped rn for an AU that doesn’t even exist.

You know what that means, right?

YOU GOTTA WRITE IT NAO!!

So this actually happened
  • A dog came in for a pregnancy x ray today. The breeder is a pain in the butt and really reluctant to spend money, always implements cost cutting measures wherever possible.
  • I see one of the girls walk out of x ray with her hand over her mouth, clearly trying to contain laughter.
  • Me: What's going on?
  • Nurse: So the bitch isn't pregnant.
  • Me: Really?? Maybe she's just not at 8 weeks yet?
  • Nurse: No, really. He gets his mate to do the AI so he doesn't have to spend money here. And apparently... he put it up the butt.
  • Me: He put the tube...
  • Nurse: Yes. The dogs definitely not pregnant!
  • Ahh, breeders.

A/N: For my medical people-I’m sorry if things are not 100% accurate as far as the ER and whatnot. I have no experience in the medical field, but this is also a work of fiction. I tried to be as general as possible. Believe it or not, this will be winding down sooner rather than later. I’d say about 2 more parts to go-maybe 3. Feedback is always appreciated (asks, replies, reblogs), they are super motivating and let me know if this is sinking or swimming and I’m a total feedback whore-tell me you love me  😜 xoxo
