Nursing a Grudge

by Richard Martinus
Originally published by on 28/11/2015

Ghastly day. Ward understaffed, no vacant beds, zombified junior doctors wafting past prescribing ever more drugs for patients they barely speak to, nurses getting blamed for everything that goes wrong – all par for the course. But spending an hour with a patient trying to explain to him that it wasn’t the NHS’s job to patch up his relationship with his ex-girlfriend? That was a new one.

Feeling sleepy now. Think I'll just have a little lie down on the sofa...

“Do you want to get run over by my truck, mummy?'

Not really, Alex darling. But thanks for the thought.
