For those of you that have blogs, do you ever get the feeling that someone (in his case my work) is reading your blog because you write about something and then you see a direct effect on what you wrote? Okay, so maybe your not following me, let me explain. Yesterday I complained about not getting any hours at work, and I even mentioned that I had gone back to hospital ER #2 after a year and a half, but only to work on med/surg which I didn't like*, but did it anyway just to get some hours. That was Monday. Then Tuesday I got called to go back again to work on med/surge, I turned them down, because it was only for 4 hours and it was snowing like crazy and it's a half hour drive without snowy icy roads, and well, lets just say, I'm not that desperate for work. Then today, I got called again to see if I wanted to work tonight in the same hospital, but this time I get to work ER. (I had to say yes, after all that complaining)
Well, I guess I can't complain about going to work, since I just complained about not getting to work, but you know how when you don't do something for a while, it's hard to get back into the habit of doing it again. That's kind of how I feel about work right now.
Friday my friend D'Arcy from WA is coming to visit for a few days, and then we leave for Florida, and so basically I wont work again until March 3rd, so really I need to go to work today. Why can't I just get a paycheck and stay home??
*The reason I don't like med/surg is because there is way too much paper work, last Monday when I worked there, I spent probably 2 hours providing patient care and the other 6 hours charting about it. Care plans, patient teaching, problem charting, narrative charting, assessment charting, 24 hour chart checks, vital signs, I/O's, % of meals eaten, hygiene care provided, meds given, and probably more, but seriously it's way too much!
There are other reasons I don't like med/surg but the paperwork is a major one.
