The book Intensive Care: The Story of a Nurse is written by Echo Heron. THE GREAT INSTITUTIONAL CLOCK marked 2:50 p.m. m., and somewhere in the middle of the eight flights of stairs, I wondered what I would have to do for the next nine hours of my life.
What would they need? Would it be simply a matter of managing the pain with a little morphine and oxygen, or would he be constantly on the go, checking vital signs every five minutes, suctioning secretions to keep airways clear, calculating medication doses, calibrating machines, and listening? to my sixth sense, all while staying one step ahead. And, of course, a part of my attention was reserved for the fear that loomed larger than the rest, the one that was always present: Would I make a fatal mistake?
I reached the bottom step and had to juggle my brown paper lunch bag, oversized purse, and umbrella to open the door to the green waiting room. As I walked under the ACUTE CORONARY CARE sign, I noticed a white-haired woman sitting on the couch, crying. A younger woman with red hair leaned over her, touching the woman’s shoulder, saying nothing. It could mean something critical; it could be an overreaction. But there wasn’t the usual hysteria that comes with overreaction. This was the kind of grief and fear that came from something tragic.
