And what better way to start this off than talking about the latest outbreak of D&V (the shits and puking to all the lay people out there). It's not easy trying to contain D&V in one bay, when you have 6 demented, confused and wandering men spreading their germs and shit (literally) amongst each other. So now naturally most of the ward has got it. It has been like a farmyard, with all the wanderers wandering everywhere BUT the toilet and thinking the middle of the bay is an appropriate place to offload their stomach ache. It is a picture when you have several nurses chasing after them dragging them to the toilet! Naturally, this latest outbreak has meant that the ward has been closed. HUURAAAAAHHHH!!!!! No admissions!!!! We were all extremely pleased with this. We could still send patients home, but couldn't take any new admissions! Of course, relatives are extremely displeased about this latest outbreak, with several of us yelling in our heads "it's probably you that brought it in" They never wash their hands then sit on patients beds but trying to blame us for it. Oh well, SHIT happens!!
