Highlight of the Day

Nurse Fortune is paired with another nurse who does all of their work.  Fortune still harasses her, of course.  The woman is quiet and has no recourse.

This woman used to highlight papers in different colors, not just the typical yellow.  "Important!" she would explain, but if everything is highlighted in rainbows of brightness, then nothing stands out as important.  Highlighting must have been this woman's outlet for stress.  Now the entire ward is highlighted: the useless notices on the walls, scrap paper, charts, the shift report, and so on.  Fortune yells at her for it, which just makes the coloring worse.

To show her my support, I gave her a little gift of bright highlighter markers in ten different colors.
