    1. You don’t have to look at your badge when a code gets called anymore because you’ve already memorized what they all mean…
    But if you got dropped in a new hospital, you’d probably be lost because there isn’t a standardized system for code labeling in the U.S.

    2. You’re either BFF’s with the kitchen staff, maintenance staff, switchboard operators or all of the above, because you know they are the reason the hospital keeps running.

    3. At any given moment, any location in the hospital, you know where the nearest coffee pot is.


    4. You know which shoes in your closet are 1) too clicky 2) too scuffy or 3) too squeaky to be worn throughout the hospital corridors.

    5. You also know what items of clothing you can clip your badge too, and what pieces will require you to wear a lanyard.


    6. You have a minimum of three lanyards, at least one of which is silly and/or sparkly.

    7. You have hidden in the hospital Chapel at least once; and if you haven’t yet, trust me, you will.


    8. You know which bathrooms are the least used and you try to make a beeline for them on your break.

    9. You weren’t sure what I meant by the word “break” just then.

    10. You know which departments regularly have food (ER, Medical Records, Medical/Surgical Nursing Station) and you’ve memorized birthdays of people you’ve never actually met so you know when/where to find free cake.

    11. You have replaced at least one meal with cake during a really long shift.


    12. You have “a person” in each office, whether it’s the office manager or a really nice secretary, and when they go on vacation you’re totally lost without them.


    13. You don’t even notice certain aromas anymore; it’s all just “hospital smell”.


    14. You know how to nonchalantly hip-bump the snack machine in the lounge so that you get two bags of Doritos for the price of one.
