Can't Sleep

On nights, I regularly get bleeped by nurses to see patients. Mostly it's for menial tasks that the day team forgot to do. Sometimes, patients can't sleep or are feeling a bit nauseous. I keep a list and if it's not urgent, I prioritise more sick patients and then see them afterwards.

It's amazing how many times I go to see a patient because they're complaining of not being able to sleep but by the time I get there... they're fast asleep.

Times like that, I give a silent thanks and quietly leave the ward. At least that's one person ticked off the list.
