As my days when I'm not at work usually involve copious amounts of coffee and knitting, I didn't think that would make for interesting photographs. My working day is much more interesting, however as I am a nurse, I can't take photo's of patients, or of certain things we do, due to confidentiality etc.
As a nurse, I spend A LOT of time washing my hands, so I see these sinks very frequently throughout the day.
We sometimes take bloods, and spend a lot of time making referrals, admitting and discharging patients, and checking blood results on our ancient old computer (which likes to break down a lot).
This is just a small selection of things we do. Other things that couldn't be photographed are: bed bathing/assisting with personal hygiene, bed making, lots and lots of cleaning, feeding, making time to talk to my patients, formulating care plans, organising students, hanging fluids, making up IV antibiotics, utilising fluid pumps, ordering stock and special mattresses.... the list goes on and on and on!
At the end of the day, we hand over to the next shift then head home, for a bit of this:
A nurses work is never done.
