Is this from Magnum PI?
No need to thank me
It's not like the movies. they mainly keep all the beepy machines quiet in hospitals.
@TheMightyImp, As a nurse, the beepy things in the hospital are not even worth my attention 99% of the time.
"Alarm fatigue" is a real problem in medicine. Every machine hooked the patient beeps and chimes and alarms CONSTANTLY and it hardly ever is a real issue.
Then if something actually bad is happening, staff hesitate to react cause who knows...
Also, I know this is a meme but I have patients and visitors f*ck with the machinery all the time and I just wanna scream "STOP, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, JACKASS! YOU AREN'T HELPING."
@LookOutASni, Yup. I had a relative on 8 machines, all of the sounds were off pretty much all of the time.
“Did you try unplugging and plugging back in?”
Several will sleep forever.
At least we still have the machine that goes PING!
