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

*Certified Nursing Assistant
