    Some patients are A&Ox3, some are A&Ox4.

    I am super alert and oriented (which is not necessarily a good thing)

    When pigs fly.
    I think it's the mental image more than anything.
    But as all my [emoji298]️HP[emoji298]️ fans know, pigs do in fact fly. Pig is the owl, right?

    We have corners here? Are they mitered?
    Far, of course our corners are mitered, which is why we get stuck in them.

    When you have a Union you loose flexibility. I'll give you an example; Most of us Nurses want to adjust our work schedule so that we get more days off in a row. We can't because that would require the LPN's, which are Unionized, to adjust their contract. If you know anything about Unions, once you join a Union, you now work for the Union and NOT the hospital. The biggest thing is you loose flexibility.
    I am not against unions per se, but I know that at my institution the union does get in the way at times. First of all, because the union is not nursing specific, concerns regarding staffing and ratios are not a priority. Instead of ensuring that I never have to be the only RN on a psych floor (which is very scary considering it's psych and I'm still really green) they talk about the skill mix and ensuring that the PCPs and other staff don't lose their jobs. I love that we have a diverse staff, but giving me a PCP who is not licensed, cannot do any documentation or assessment, cannot give Meds, cannot run groups, has no psych training, and is not allowed to run a code gray/blue or apply restraints, is unhelpful.

    Also, the union is very strict about our weekend requirements. The nurses on my shift and floor can really work it out between ourselves to allow for our own preferences (some of us would rather Sunday, others rather Saturday and others rather Friday). However management is so scared of breaking union rules.
