|In the following clip, the nurse gives specific and detailed directions to the new porter.|
The nurse recommends that the porter walk down the stairs rather than taking the lift, as the lift can take a long time to arrive.
The expression 'quite a bit' means a long period of time. "You sometimes have to wait quite a bit for the lift, if it's busy."
"No worries" is an informal expression meaning 'don't worry'.
"Be back in a tick" is an informal expression meaning to return in a short period of time - quickly.
