Getting good night sleep during hospital stay is impossible. The CNA visits during midnight and early morning to take vital signs keeps awake, very disturbing but necessary.

Vital Signs 

Subba Rao 

Here comes again the nagging noise of the wheeling cart 

Time for vital signs says the CNA* putting gloves 

The cart went high tech now 

Flat screen monitor with a scanner 

Scanning bar codes from patient's wrist band to anything dispensed 

Disposable forehead temperature reader 

Push button blood pressure monitor 

Finger touch pulse reader 

Quick Wi-Fi data transfer 

Just a poke, then draw blood old fashioned way 

Blood work with non-invasive sample, not yet arrived 

Good morning sorry to wake you up that early, then good afternoon, good
evening, I know it is midnight 

Feel like not waking up 

Time for vital signs again 

Here comes the CNA 

*Certified Nursing Assistant
