Morbidly funny, only a geriatric nurse could get away with that! Sad about her mother.

PF, makes perfect sense that a rib might crack but because I've never given/gotten CPR it never occurred to me. Oh, and thanks for posting the video. Didn't even have to watch it and I've got the song firmly planted as an earworm. Uh-oh, hope it doesn't keep me awake tonight.
That's why the AHA suggests that song, most people who are likely to do Hands Only CPR are of an age to remember it.

Now we need to find a song the next generation will remember...

Nurses, especially night shift nurses are horribly morbid. It's that old you have to laugh or cry. My co-worker made sure her Mother was on my unit so I could direct her end-of-life care.

It's not the first time I have been requested as the primary for someone's parent at end-of-life, some doctors have even asked that I care for their patients. Even though I no longer work the floor, I am still the Lead Nurse in charge of our "Hospice" program.

Thankfully, we have nurses like you around, PF. I couldn't do what you do.

The look on my ex-cleaning lady's face when she saw her volcano birthday cake. She was so surprised because she left the design totally to me for a luau party. She told me I am making her cakes for as long as she has birthdays!

Even though it hurts to smile, that is going to be a big one that will stay on my face for hours or even days. I will be posting pictures soon.

I suppose if you aren't competent in CPR though...

Listen to the rhythms, they're actually quite similar. I guess it would depend on how optimistic you are!
