The hospital workers Christmas Sounds

The hospital bed alarms have taken over for Christmas Caroles.

The respirators keeping these patients alive have taken over for sounds of the hard pellet snow landing on top of layers already down on the ground.

The sounds of endless phones ringing with not enough staff to answer them have taken over for any Church Bells.

The robotic voice that yells overhead when yet another code gets called echoes throughout the halls of every hospital around has taken over for the loud sounds of family get togethers.

The telemetry monitors alarm takes over for the laughter that normally comes from the rooms that the younger kids occupy every year.

The oxygen sensors and C-Pap bells have taken over for all of the annoying questions about when they are going to find a partner, have a baby or get married to that partner they have been with so long.

The beeps of the Pixis as we type in our patients names or medications have taken over the joyful sounds of food being placed around the table as the family sits down together.

The tears seeping down our faces as we call family members on IPADs for them to tell their family member one last time that they love them has taken over for everyone asking for the platters full of amazing smells.

The call of Time of Death has taken over for the sound of saying grace before we are able to eat the food that we just piled high on our plates.

The time ticking by on our clocks as we wait for the morgue to come and collect the deceased patient takes over for the kids watching the clock waiting on the adults to finish clearing the table so they can finally sit and open their presents they have been patiently waiting for.

The sound of our charge nurse telling us about our next admit takes over for the loud voice stating that the time to open the presents has come.

The sounds of the impatient ER Nurse trying to report off on their current patient so they can take one of the masses out of the waiting room to replace them takes over for the uncle that is yelling for everyone to make sure to contain and throw away any wrapping paper and boxes so he doesn’t have to do it all himself.

The sounds of the bed wheels being pushed onto the unit from the ER to fill the room with machines again to keep them breathing has now taken over for the family running off to the other rooms to play with the presents that they just got.

And then with no end in site, the cycles restarts back to those bed alarm Christmas Carols.
