kitchen sink

Yes, the kitchen sick is leaking again, months after it has been fixed not once but two to three times, not only by the Other Half and one plumber, but others too.

Now set at a rate of 100 cc/hour. If anyone knows a good plumber...drop a note!

don't like to say this, but....

Al rightly then....

I really do not like working with some of our doctors.......

a). Dr. Know -It-All...seriously, he does...he writes all the medical and surgical stuff on what our Unit does....pretty crazy---he has the sickest sense of humor---very dry, not sure on how to read him...but over all I would want him to take care of me.

b). Dr. Mc Lovely-very smart-very good looking, the patients love him...hard to not like him.....sometimes, he can be a smart-ass(okay pretty much all the time)...but who cares...he hardly gets along with his co-horts in crime, but it is a love hate relationship, kind of has the same relationships with the nurses too.

c). Dr. Overly-Cautious...Love her, but almost too caring...thinks every patient is going to... abrupt, is in preterm labor, is pre eclampic etc....-Love her...teases a good way and is a great teacher!

Then the others.......

d.) Dr. Who? never work with her...maybe once in the past 3 months....

e.) Dr. Nip-Tuck- get surgeon, great at managing the patients, does not get enough/or take enough credit.

f.) Dr. Don't -bother me---takes the cake.....he has his own issues...fifty going on three, completely lazy and immature, bordering on sexual misconduct.....he is going to either get killed by a nurse soon or he is going to kill a patient soon...not sure which will happen first, but I'm betting on one of us to take him out!

Don't look!

Oh Lord! That is all I have to was so strange! You know, when you shouldn't look, but you can't help yourself, mostly for curiosity sakes...well now I wish I had not.........

thank you

There are so many days that I question myself, if I should continue on with my new job....because it has been the most emotionally challenging job I have ever held.

As soon as I decide, tonight is going to be the end of it...I will officially request a transfer, something big happens at work and I change my mind.

Saturday night- shift was one of those days...I decided that I will call Human Resources on Monday and beg for a transfer.

Then I was told by another RN to check my my mailbox I found a lovely card from a patient and her family...thanking me for all of the time and emotional support I gave them, during the lose of their infant, along with gifts.

It is something we as Rn's do got see often enough, or if ever, and then it reminds me why I choose nursing as a career in the first place.

Looks like I'll be staying a little while longer.

After all, "Hope Lives Here"!
