I Pulled That Code Cart Right Outside The Door

May 14, 2011

i had a patient once who was in CHF who kept saying “travis! travis get outta my room! travis what do you want! why do you keep comin in here?” she had one daughter with her…so after about an hour of these travis calls, i pulled the daughter aside and said “do you know who travis is?” and she was like “oh yes.. travis was momma’s older brother. he died a few years ago”

i pulled that code cart right outside the door. never a good sign when your patients speak to dead family members.

30 minutes later, she coded, and died.
