At first i was wondering why they didn't have a tree, because that would seem to be the norm for even a medical facility but i guess that's not that important in the overall scheme of things. It was a fun story and nicely done.

This was a fun story to read. I could visualize the "Christmas tree" and the smiles it put on the patients' faces.

What a unique take on the topic. Creative.
Very creative. Truly illustrates "Necessity is the mother of invention." I must live in a monochromatic world - all the catheter tubing I've ever used has been clear so nurses could note the output. :)

Questioning the green catheter tubing myself. Could it be clear tubing filled with the green jello no one ever eats? :) Anyway it was a good story and unexpected.
Congatulations on your placement. These nurses were quite creative, as you were in the writing.

Very creative and a well-deserved win. Takes me back to several Christams eves on duty in hospital wards. Maybe to clear up the colour question: everywhere I've worked catheters are clear plastic and oxygen tubing is green. But personally I didn't think that detracted from your story.
