Hoping I didn't ruin my shotRegister Today!
- by beeker Sep 16I'm being trained in a new area, and I really want to work there in hopes of tranferring permananly. I don't want to do anything to ruin my chances. Unfortunately, I've got the stomach bug BAD. I had to call out. And it is not looking good for tomorrow, either. I can't help but think I blew it. But no one wants what I've got! The manager was nice about it, but I can't help but think I blew it! I hope I can overcome a callout dring orientation.

- Sep 18 by Always_LearningHonestly, it happens more than you think...particularly if you are working in a hospital for the first time or working in a new area. There are all sorts of bugs floating around that you're not used to. When I started working in the ED many years ago, I and a co-worker who started with me both got really sick during orientation. The manager said, "We kind of expect that until your immune system catches up!" Now I think I have a cast-iron immune system. Hope you feel better soon.
