Overheard while performing the babysitting duty:
Nurse 1: "They went and ordered for [some test] on your patient".
Nurse 2: "Well, I told them that they needed to get that test...3 DAYS AGO!"
Nurse 1: "I guess they didn't feel it was needed at the time?"
Nurse 2: "Who knows what these docs are thinking? But, whateva...I'm just a lowly nurse anyway...don't know shit."
Nurse 3: "Who ever said you knew anything to begin with?"
Nurse 2: "Shut up, bitch!"
They then all proceeded to start laughing hysterically. I didn't get the joke, but the innuendo from the critical care nurses that they know more about how to take care of patients than the doctors (surgical, medical, attending, resident, or otherwise) is more than covertly spoken. But only when the docs aren't around - I apparently don't count.
