So I’ve learned a bunch of stuff about hospitals in my time in…. now three of them, three departments of one.
This is going to be a lighter touch on some things.
* you can really tell how understaffed a department is even before you get to the call button answer time.
* losing your call button when you can’t stand up is terrifying
* brushing your teeth becomes an act of personal autonomy and suddenly very very important
* washing hair? Amazing. But the ‘dry shampoo- caps that really do almost nothing still feel awesome. And your standards go from ‘I need my personalized shampoo’ to ‘just pour some water on me please. ‘
*doctors have no sense of urgency
