Video: “Vanc Me Maybe?”

A group of awesome nursing students taking a class called “Information Technology in Nursing” recently made a parody video of the pop hit “Call Me Maybe,” culled from their experience learning about the antibiotic Vancomycin. It’s quite catchy! Check it out below:

Here are the lyrics, just in case you’d like to sing along:

(PATIENT)
I got infected today
Don’t know what the docs will say
Could be gram positive
Turns out that it’s MRSA

At least I don’t have C. Diff
Still said I’ll need something big
A drug that will inhibit
The cell wall’s synthesis

IV infusin’
Patent line, drug is runnin’
On time, for 60 min
Hope you make me better, baby

Hey, I just got you
MRSA is crazy
And I’m so sick now
So vanc me, maybe?

(NURSE)
It’s hard to dose right
To treat you baby
We’ll peak and trough now
So vanc you, maybe?

(PATIENT)
Hey, I just got you
MRSA is crazy
And I’m so sick now
So vanc me, maybe?

And the adverse effects
Really scare me
There are three big ones
So, educate me?

(NURSE)
Hey, can you hear me at all?
I promise you’ll never fall
We will monitor for signs of
Ototoxicity

Watch dose and the duration
Monitor your hydration
We’ll also check for signs of
Nephrotoxicity

Took time infusin’
Histamine not releasin’
A-feb, BP not droppin’
There’s no signs of Red Man’s, baby

(PATIENT)
Face, isn’t flushing
Heart, isn’t tachy
I don’t have Red Man’s
So, vanc me maybe?

It’s hard to dose right
For the kidneys
But they’re good function
So, vanc me maybe?

Hey, I’m not pregnant
And not elderly
But in acute care
So, vanc me maybe?
And all the other drugs
Could not touch me
Since I have MRSA
So, vanc me maybe?

Before you came into my life
I just felt so bad
I just felt so bad
I just felt so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I just felt so bad
I just felt so bad
I just felt so, so bad

(NURSE)
It’s hard to dose right
To treat you baby
Levels in range now
So vanc you, maybe?

(PATIENT)
Hey, I’m over you
MRSA was crazy
Finished my dosing
I’m all cured, maybe?

(NURSE)
And all the other days
I had to wear these
No MRSA here now
You’re all cured, baby

(PATIENT)
Before you came into my life
I just felt so bad
I just felt so bad
I just felt so, so bad

(ALL)
Before you came into our lives
MRSA was so bad
And you should know that

So vanc me, maybe?
