I'm up early - why do you ask? Because I agreed to work 2 extra shifts this week. So I'll be working Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon & Tues nights. I must be insane! I'm praying for some great patients that don't take a lot of meds at night. :) My patients earlier this week - none of them had any midnight or 6 am meds ordered. It was nice! I'll keep you updated on how my 60 hr week goes.
I forgot to add, this past week was "Nurses Week." My hospital gave us a dinner - which I didn't go to. I slept instead. And at that dinner they handed out some Burt's Bees Wax products for foot care - which is important. I'm finding that my feet are really sore after the end of the week. I need to find someone to massage them. Any takers??? <g> On Sunday evening, they gave us ice cream & a thermos. And on Tuesday evening they gave us pizza & a drink. I also got a shirt that says my hospital name on it & the department I work in...that wasn't for nurses week though, everyone in the hospital is getting those.
We still have JCAHO coming to our hospital - for those of you in nursing, you know those are the big guns. I am praying they don't ask me stuff I don't know. I think they are supposed to be here this week or next week. Rumor has it they've already been there, but I would think we would have noticed - I would hope anyways! We shall see.
Ok, enough chit chat, time to go take a shower & then get back to sleep before my 5-day marathon begins. Ciao!
