How to Sit

I just reviewed several videos that came with my nursing textbooks. They show the ideal way to position a patient in a hospital bed. I now want to go check myself into a hospital! For instance, it took the nurse in the video five full minutes and six fluffy pillows to move someone from lying down in bed to sitting up in bed. Seriously! The patient ended up sitting up, tv remote in hand, snacks on the bedside table, and six freaking pillows: one behind her head, one under each forearm, one under each knee, and a little one at the small of her back. She looked like a queen.
