To sleep through the night during hospital stay is impossible. The CNA visits during midnight and again early morning to take vital signs. This experience is more debilitating than the treatment.

Vital Signs

Subba Rao

Here comes again the nagging noise of the wheeling cart

Time for vital signs says the CNA* putting gloves

The cart went high tech now

Flat screen monitor with a scanner

Scanning bar codes from patient's wrist band to anything dispensed

Disposable forehead temperature reader

Push button blood pressure monitor

Finger touch pulse reader

Quick Wi-Fi data transfer

Just a poke, then draw blood old fashioned way

Blood work with non-invasive sample, not yet arrived

Good morning sorry to wake you up that early, then good afternoon, good evening, I know it is midnight

Feel like not waking up

Time for vital signs again

Here comes the CNA
