First, the nurses on the floor weren’t even aware that Beth was to get a “central line” put in today. The nurse yesterday knew she was getting one today. She explained the procedure to us yesterday.
Then, the “central line” doctor wasn’t aware that we were going home tonight with the particular type of line Beth was getting. This is the new thing. Dr Rossetti ordered this line, knowing we still had a few more outpatient days.
Finally, the vending machine took my money and failed to give me my chips. Yeah, I could have walked all the way down to the gift shop, but I would have lost valuable time to come back to the room and explain all of this.
