He is on the mend but continued prayers appreciated.
What was interesting while sitting in the waiting room? I can't help but look at and examine my environment and develop story ideas.
Many of you are probably aware that most medical units use machines to dispense drugs. These go by a few names. Pyxis machines or Omni cells.
When I first started nursing, these machines were mostly used for drug dispensing so nurses on units didn't have to wait for the pharmacy to fill a med order and then deliver it. It's very helpful in situations where the patient is in a lot of pain or say . . . seizing.
These machines have evolved to dispense quite a few things. In our unit, they dispense not only drugs but about 90% of the supplies we use for patient care. Things like suture kits, nasal cannulas, wound packing, etc.
I discovered a Pyxis machine that dispensed scrubs. How awesome is that!
Now, you may ask yourself . . . "Just why did Jordyn find that soooo fascinating?"
Simple-- how could a bad guy use it to get where he wanted to be in the hospital setting. Or, how could someone use it to disguise themselves to get out.
Awww--- now you see how my devious mind works.
What the machine required was an ID and password because they probably know what devious minds think. Yes, I did punch a few buttons to see exactly how it worked. Research, people.
What ideas have you come up with in waiting rooms?
