My boyfriend is an engineer which means he knows about as much about the medical profession as I do convolutional codes.

When the conversation is then turned to the nurse, an unfiltered play by play is given of the previous shift or memory. It is a raw recollection that is sometimes neither welcomed nor stomached entirely. Sometimes it borders on too much information, but it is all in a day’s work for a nurse…..
