Another Day at the office By Ensign Sara Crusher Sara waited impatiently for Anthony to get to sick bay. She hoped that he would get there before Josh did. She had already disobeyed orders once in the past 10 minutes she didn’t want to push her luck. She breathed a great sigh of relief when he walked in the door. "Josh is on his way. He has a third degree burn on his arm with a plasma infection already starting to set in. I began treatment and then he was called to the bridge and now he’s on his way back and you HAVE to finish the treatment." It was all one breathlessly long sentence. She didn’t give him time to do anything but nod his head. She smiled at him, threw her arms around him in a grateful hug and the dashed into the AMO officer, or as she had started calling it, home. Sara sat behind the desk her head in her hands. "You were the only one here." She said out loud. "It was a bad injury..... Your a doctor you can’t just sit there and not do something." She stood up and started pacing the room, trying to get a grip on all the emotions she was feeling. "She can’t honestly get after me for this. It was a tough call and I made it and I‘ll stand by it. Second guessing myself is not going to help anyone." Sara stopped in her tracks as she realized she was talking to herself very loudly. She had reported it to Andros. He said it was fine, but does he know about the Captain's orders. "You WILL NOT treat Asper in a private setting AGAIN. If he has a medical problem, he can obtain the proper clearances to report to medical and ANY of our fine staff can treat him there." The words rang in Sara’s mind as clearly as if the Captain had just spoken them. "It was an emergency and I WAS the ONLY doctor here." She told herself as she sat back down in her chair. Sara finally took a deep breath. "Computer open duty log." She called out as she leaned back in the chair. "Log ready record when ready." Assistant Medical Officer Doctor Sara Crusher’s Duty Log: Supplemental. I reported on duty at 09:30 hours. Sick bay was empty except for the night doctor and a few nurses. After reliving the night shift I preceded to check on Lt. Dnalls. The locations of the rest of this shift staff is; Dr. Anthony D’Vorak is currently over seeing the wounded and infected caravan refugees in cargo bay 1. The location of the Chief Medical Officer is at this time unknown. Med Updates: Lt. Jg. Jvan Dnalls is recovering at a steady pace. He awoke from the virus/cure induced sleep at 0953 hours. He is feeling weak and will require a few days rest but he will make a full recovery from both his injuries and the virus. I will monitor him here in sick bay for the rest of the day and then release him to his quarters for a minimum of three days off duty. At 1012 hours Lt. Joshua Asper came into sick bay with a medical emergency. I directed my nurse to treat his injuries since I am under orders not to treat this officer myself. However, the severity of his wounds called for a doctor’s evaluation. Under the circumstances I made the judgment call to assess the Lt’s injuries. The Lt. suffered third degree burns to his left fore arm. Tri-corder scans also read signs of plasma induced infection that had started to settle into the wound. I gave the Lt. a hyperspray for the infection and began to treat the burn with a dermal regenerator. I was unable to complete the treatment because the Lt. was called to the Bridge by Commander Andros. Asper was told to return to sick bay as soon as he could so the treatment could be completed. I would like to add that Nurse Betty was not only in the room, but never left my side during my treatment of Lt. Asper. Sara started to relax a bit as she listened to what she was saying and realized she had to stop being so damn jumpy. "Computer end log and file it. Also send a copy to the Captain." Sara stood from the desk and walked back into sick bay. It was empty again except for Anthony and Josh. She smiled at them as she walked over Dnalls once again to check his vital signs. Over it her day was looking pretty normal. She woke up in Scooby’s bed, was a half hour late for work, and disobeyed an order. She sighed and smiled. "And it’s not even lunch time yet."
