email@example.com All is quiet in the intensive care unit on the second floor of Washington County Hospital. On duty nurses flutter around the triangular wing tending to patients, recording information into computers or grabbing a moment's respite in the bread box that passes for a kitchen/lounge. In green surgical scrubs, stethoscope hanging around her neck, registered nurse May Hoffman changes an IV for one gentleman on a ventilator. She is three and a half hours into a 12-hour shift and will care for several more patients in ICU before punching out around 7 p.m. Hoffman, a 24-year veteran, loves her job. L-O-V-E-S, loves it. But she's 47, likely closer to the end of her career than the beginning.
