And, I'm back at the bedside.
First day back, with a patient who suffered from an OD on a variety of his medications. Not much to say about this poor gentleman, except that the MD team was drawing straws as to why his AMS persisted (isn't OD enough of a reason?)...vascillating from neuroleptic syndrome to plain encephalopathy, there wasn't much of a consensus made, and he, young and strong, lay mildly sedated and writhing in bed. I couldn't help thinking of how much of a hell he'd brought himself to, and how long it might persist.
Pretty long, uneventful day, but I won't complain. Slow and steady, right?
