One very uneventful call

Wow, I had call with not a single delivery. That's unusual. Hardly any pages either....even more unusual. Maybe no one knew the baby magnet was on call!

One triage call...

"Hi I have the patient who was sent over from the office for a pre-eclampsia work-up and serial blood pressures. I sent her out to walk and when she came back her blood pressure was 175/85."

Me: Wait...what??? You sent her to walk?

Anyone see a problem here? Scary. And this nurse is also a CNM. Go figure.

Code brown - it's a little crass but it's basically saying that something scared the crap out of you...literally! LOL!
