"Code Gray"

Gina got to call her first "Code Gray" last night. Code Gray is when you need extra manpower to help contain an out of control patient or family member. She had a patient in his late 20's that overdosed on cocaine & some other drugs. I guess he started throwing his heart monitor around the room & was quite volatile. I am working on a different floor this week, so when the nurses on my floor heard the code gray called...I jokingly said "It's probably one of Gina's patients."

I decided I had to go the room to lend a hand. Nahhhh, not really...truthfully I went to see the line-up of men that showed up to help out. Hey, I'm single, what can I say? I'm entitled to some entertainment while at work, aren't I? :)
