Excerpt from the issue...
You’ve just come in for the early morning shift. You finish taking sign-outs. As you walk toward the coffee machine, the triage nurse runs by you carrying a toddler in her arms who is coughing, crying, and gasping for air. You follow her to the room, squeeze past 2 frightened parents, a crying grandparent, 2 other nurses, and an EMT student trying to get to the child. They are all trying to keep him on the gurney, place monitor leads, place a nasal cannula for oxygen, and start looking for IV sites. In the meantime, the child’s distress continues to worsen, and everyone in the room starts looking at you.
