DALLAS, TX – Nurses on Mercy Hospital’s floor 4, med-surg unit, are perplexed.  “The Alaris pumps seem to always run out 20 minutes after change of shift,” charge nurse Nancy Lungrum told reporters.  Nobody can figure out why these pumps will alarm 20 minutes after a new crew takes over and the previous shift is sitting at home comfortably on their couches.

“I have NO idea,” Nurse Shannon said while sipping on a slightly chilled glass of Chardonnay.  “All I know is I didn’t have to change out the bag and tubing during my shift.”
