Problem solving at 2:00 am in medicinal hell

Problem solving at 2:00 a.m. in medicinal hell
The alarm's on the bed so I won't fall.
Really I'm able to get to the bathroom. 
The Dr. told me it's okay.
Says the nurse "it's not in your chart."
I think: "God, please get me out of here", but if I get
up, the bells with sound and an RN herd
will race down the hall scolding me all the way
like I was a little girl.
Had their ways, I'd be straight-jacketed,
(safe from harm, other than psychological),
and the nurses could take off their clogs
and stay at their station and chat.
I think I'll wet the bed and buzz someone
Problem solved.

How narrow can you make a bed?

    Yes, and one shift of nurses tell you one thing, another shift another. Have you heard - people die needlessly in hospitals. Love, Old daver

    I've been there, dear Kathy. One time they just left me out in the hall on a gurny - guess that's the spelling. Ah, but just try to go to the john by yourself. Love, Dave

    Love the cynical write Kathryn - wet the bed and give those nurses something to do! Mum is in hospital at the moment - have to admit the beds are narrow:-( Hugs Jan xx
