Yesterday at work I discovered they have restricted all internet access. You now must have a login password (which I have not been privileged enough to have) to get online.
I actually think it's a good idea for them to give staff login id's because that way they can monitor what your looking at, and then if a website is visited that shouldn't be, they know who did it and can deal with one person rather than punishing everyone. I have nothing to hide, I look at baby stuff and blogs, email, read news, check weather, etc, etc, all harmless stuff.
I know it sounds like I spend a lot of time on the internet at work, but when I don't have any patients to take care of, what else is there to do? I work night shift and its a small ER, many nights I have 4 or more hours of no patients with nothing to do and I am by myself. The doctor is sleeping, and the secretary is usually reading a book or on the web herself. There is only so much stocking and cleaning up you can do, and it doesn't take 4 hours.
Oh, I am so annoyed by this! Luckily I just bought a new book; Dear John, by Nicholas Sparks. Hopefully that will occupy me until I can sweet talk the manager into giving me a password.
