- I arrived at work to find that we are short three nurses, leaving me two nurses to cover an 18-bed ED.
- We are out of patient chart templates and nobody knows how to order them, so I have to take notes on blank paper.
- Despite being short-staffed, a steady stream of ambulance traffic arrives. (Didn't they get the memo?)
- The computers are on the fritz.
- I got chewed out by an irascible consultant.
