    I WAS FLOATED FROM MY BUSY MED/SURG UNIT TO THE ICU AND THE NSG THERE ASK ME IF I COULD PASS MEDS. WELL I WAS FLOORED . WHAT DID SHE THINK I DID ON MY UNIT CROSS STITCH?????????? I ENDED UP BATHING PATIENTS. AND WE ARE ALWAYS OVER BUDGET AND THEY WONDER WHY. EVEN OUR CO-WORKERS ARE UNAWARE OF OUR EDU.

    I WORK A 8 HOUR DAYSHIFT. WE USUALLY DONT GET OUR 15 MIN. BREAKS. BUT WE TRY TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE GETS TO EAT LUNCH. RECENTLY WE HAVE BEEN BRINGING OUR LUNCH BECAUSE OUR CAFETERIA RAISED THE PRICES AND DECREASED OUR EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT WITHOUT A HEADS UP.

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
