Nurse Jackie Peyton is a hard working and dedicated ER nurse. She has a bad back, is married with two kids, but fools around and puts altogether too many hours in at work. She also has good judgment and knows more than some of the residents. When she tells Dr. Cooper that she suspects a bicycle messenger brought in following an accident of having a brain bleed, he blows her off. She decides that something good will come out of the situation regardless. Similarly, when she learns that a diplomat who attacked a hooker will not be charged because of his diplomatic immunity, she has a solution for that as well. Written by
Did You Know?
To the person above who listed the "goof." Though what you said is true, opiate's can cause dry mouth, it is not that in general that causes bad breath, it's the behaviors of the person like personal hygiene for example or their physical health. Also, even if it did cause bad breath; I doesn't necessarily mean that another person would be able to "taste" her bad breath. What happens is long term use of opiate's can cause the whole gastrointestinal tract to dry out; which also include the mouth & this can cause xerostomia. Which is a medical term that refers to the lack in production of saliva.Which is what CAN cause problems like bad breath, tooth decay, difficulty chewing or problems with speaking & swallowing. So whoever wrote that "they should've tasted her bad breath," well that is just not true; unless the above situation applies. See more
Let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky, like a patient etherized upon a table. T.S. Eliot, tenth grade English. Sister Jane Deshuntel. What a champ. She's the one who told me that the people with the greatest capacity for good are the ones with the greatest capacity for evil. Smart fucking nun.
