"... his wing.” Laughing, they crossed the parking lot to the staff entrance, swiped their badges at the time clock, then walked by the North Station and through the connecting corridor of administrative offices to South Station, where they entered the Critical Care Unit. Penny breathed ..."
"...Maureen moved from bed to bed straightening the covers and asking the patients if they needed anything. She leaned over Penny and ran the second print-outs from each of the telemetry monitors. “It’s time for visitors and it’s my turn to post these strips at South Station, unless you need to escape.” ..."
"... to transfer Dodson to a cardiologist in Jacksonville. Dr. Lawrence returned to his patient’s bed as Rebecca Daniels, one of South Station’s nurses entered the Unit. “What’s going on in here? Do you-all need some help?” We’re going to need a chart copied to send with a ..."

Chapter 5: Chapter Five
"... her chin, Maureen looked down her nose at Penny. “Aretha Franklin,” she said. They laughed until the supervisor opened the door to inquire why visiting time was late and dispatched Maureen to South Station. Penny propped open the hall door and apologized to their patient’s husband who ..."
"...Maureen was working on the stack of telemetry rhythm strips, interpreting them in preparation for taping them onto sheets in the charts at South Station, when Penny slumped into the chair beside her and began to sort through Mrs. Spoonhouse’s dismantled chart, looking for the nurses’ notes. “What do you suppose Dr. Scales told that family?” ..."

Chapter 11: Chapter Eleven
"...“Flossie Mae,” Mrs. Gwen added, “telemetry patients are cared for by South Station nurses, but Unit nurses are responsible for their monitors: replacing batteries, electrodes, and lead wires as needed to maintain a readable pattern on their screens. Call me if you need anything, Penny—I’m supervising today.” ..."
"...dysrhythmia or just patient movement. Of course, the bells rang a lot during morning care, but this strip was for real: a slow rhythm from monitor number four. The label above it bore the designation: Jerry Tribble, Room 306, Dr. Scales. Penny called the desk at South Station and asked someone to check the patient and get vital signs. ..."
"... for the cardiologist to interpret. Mrs. Gwen brought the man’s chart into CCU from South Station so Penny could write the phone order and took the chart and Flossie Mae out to South to demonstrate the way a transfer should be accomplished. After a while, Dr. Scales arrived to check ..."
"... the morning.” A South Station nurse brought the telemetry she had removed from Mr. Tribble, who was now connected to a portable monitor for transfer, and laid the box on the desk because Penny was phoning Dr. Scales’s order to the Pharmacist: “Vitamin K, 2.5 mgs IV.” Penny replaced ..."
"...Panic-stricken Penny phoned South Station and requested that a nurse go to room 301 and replace the battery in the monitor. She stood staring at screen number four, watching an irregular pattern with pauses, a disturbance that needed to be addressed. A minute later, the screen displayed a straight line and the ..."
"... ready for a transfer. We need to get her on up there by ambulance.” Penny called Respiratory to do the EKG, then asked South Station’s unit secretary to bring the charts of the patients in rooms 301 and 306 to CCU. It was not all Penny’s fault because it would not have happened if ..."
"... visitors because one came in with me.” A little while later as Penny collected intakes and outputs, Dr. Lawrence opened the outside door. He waved as he hustled through the Unit, and Penny hoped everything was in order for him at South Station. CCU’s single visitor had left, so Penny ..."

Chapter 16: Chapter Sixteen
"... Penny and grabbed the gown as she tried to snap it over his arms. The ER nurse nodded and Penny fetched a catheter kit from the supply closet, then called South Station and asked for someone to come help them for a few minutes. Penny’s helpers held Mr. Head’s arms and legs, and he yelled ..."

Chapter 17: Chapter Seventeen
"... face was withered and pale as she whispered, “My head’s a roarin’.” “Maybe she just stood up too fast,” said Rebecca Daniels, a South Station nurse, who rushed to help. They lifted Jane into a wheelchair and as Rebecca bent to release the brake, Jane grabbed ..."
"... me back to the TV now,” Jane said. “I’m finished breakfast.” Penny phoned South Station. “Please have somebody come roll Miss Head out to the waiting room. I’m the only nurse in here, and I can’t leave.” In a few minutes, Rebecca Daniels popped through the door. “I’ll ..."
"... again.” By the time Mr. Head’s lunch arrived, his breathing was irregular, and Penny could not hear his blood pressure. She called South Station. “Can someone take this tray to the waiting room and tell Miss Head her brother’s worse? She’d better come now.” Minutes passed ..."
"... to the left. Penny located Mrs. Baucom’s chart at South Station’s desk. She straightened her back, sucked in her abdominals with determination, and moved into a space where trouble resided. Goose bumps blossomed on her arms as she reached for the phone and dialed Dr. Scales. “I ..."
"...The supervisor left to write Scales’s orders on the chart at South Station. Penny turned down the bed closest to the hall door and warmed up the over-bed monitor. Unable to sit down, she straightened the desk and the nurses’ lounge, then began to scribble an account of the progression of events leading up to Mrs. Baucom’s admission to the ..."
"... and barked, “Get that stuff out of the way! We’re going to intubate.” The nursing tech pushed South Station’s bed out to the hall while Rebecca helped Penny pull the Unit bed away from the wall. Mr. Hockney squeezed between the wall and the head of the bed, ripped off the ..."

"... care. Penny began her rounds on North Station in case additional drugs or supplies were needed for Loretta. After knocking on each door and asking if everything was satisfactory, she crossed over to do the same on South Station, but the overhead speaker paged her to call ER. “We have ..."
