I am literally pissing from the back passage. I am wondering whether i caught a virus from any of the patients. The past few days, the emergency department has been filled with retching/vomitting patients. I was usually spared the sights but not the sounds. They almost became white noise. And then i did a venepuncture on a patient dying of cancer. As i was leaving in the night, i heard two nurses exclaim that she was a VRE patient to a doctor. So much for infection control. You know, placing a sign that cautions everyone the patient has VRE will work, if the curtains are drawn. If they are wide open, inviting everyone into the patient’s cubicle, then who the hell is going to read the sign? Aha.
