Who am I?
I am the most sacred event in the hospital.
I will occur regardless of the situation.
The patient is about to arrest?
The floor is understaffed?
I will go on.
You want to find a staff member when I am occurring.
But you can’t.
Family want to ask a question.
You’ll be walking down the hallway as you hear the laughs.
You’ll be approaching the door as you hear the jokes.
You’ll sit down as you hear the gossip.
What am I?
I’m the nursing tea-break.
