Open Mic Night (Shift)


Humor comes in all shapes, sizes, diagnoses, tests, people, and so forth; we only need to find it - and when we do, we can improve our mood and the mood of everyone around us. I've learned that very early in my career, and it helped me deal with miserable and sometimes infuriating situations during my shifts. 


In this episode, I'll share some funny and some not so amusing situations during my first year as a nurse in a small community hospital. I'll take you through some of the weirdest, unpleasant, and awkward interactions I experienced with some patients, from surprising love birds in the morning to being beaten up by an 80-year-old lady. 


Tune in to Episode 3 of Overnight Observations and join me as I look back into some of the most uncanny exchanges with patients in my first year as a nurse.

  • The definition of humor and what it means to me (2:55)
