This vid was created as an adjunct to clinical nursing education at a local university. The newbies need to hear it like it is.
Take a break and let it load completely before viewing. If you begin before it's completely loaded and starts on its own the vid may get jerky and/or stop. Press play to continue. It will take as long as it takes your connection to download 50 Mb. But it's worth it.
The story is true. The names have been changed (or omitted) simply to avoid litigation. As yet there is no lo-res slow connection speed version.

That was a deep video I just viewed. I liked it very much. I will probably watch it again. I would not be surprised if Mary made it out of the hospital. ((but, of course she didn't))
You brought the riding experience to a whole new level. One we all share and is probably the most common thing that happens while riding, but it's glossed over by the sounds, smells and sights. It's a chance, while all that is going on around you, to sink into yourself and and try and define, "just who the Hell you THINK you are..." Well done. -- Dave
My Brother Lon, man... That was excellent. The flow of the video, back ground music, and overall timing was nothing short of spectacular creativity and a wonderful ethical dilemma clinical vignette. I thank you very much for creating this masterful masterpiece for everyone to enjoy and ponder as we beginner nurses launch our green careers in the forefront of taking care of someone's life. This will make a huge impact as well as winning the most creative and wonderful clinical experience. I felt really bad about Mary and George because technologically advanced and capable that our medical system has become, we are still miles away from perfecting the art of life as God (or other higher spiritual being as one might describe it) created it. We just need to sometimes go with the flow and play, if ya know what I mean. -- Chris (Student Nurse)
