I always wondered how the nurses at the dialysis clinic decided who sits in which chair and how the rotation works. There are 8 machines/chairs. I couldn’t detect any pattern and finally asked about it. The answer surprised me at first. The reason why they shift us around is to avoid the possibility of people feeling like a specific chair is their chair. And the issue is really not within a dialysis shift but to avoid the afternoon people coming in and standing over someone from the morning shift who is just completing their run and glaring and demanding that people hurry up and get out of “their chair”. After a few ugly moments way back when the satellite clinic opened, the nurses decided to institute a few rules to head off any further conflicts of the humanish kind. Interesting stuff.
