Well so far:
Monday - Frito Pie and soda pop
Tuesday - Rootbeer Floats
Wednesday - Banana Splits
We'll see what Thursday and Friday bring. Also, the day shift nurse I relieved said she got a cup with some little things in it (pen, candy, whatnot), but I haven't gotton one at this point. At least they seem to be trying.
Monday-Awesome shirt and beautiful corsage+card of thanks
Tuesday-Starbucks and donuts-also retractable ID card clip that says "Nurses Rock"
We shall see what Thurs and Fri will bring.
Monday was plenty, really
It's been pretty nice so far! Our employer has hosted a hosted a barbequue on both day and night shift, and last night the nursing supervisor and some of the day staff administrators came in and served banana splits from 8-10 pm. This morning there was a catered breakfast (our food service really does a lovely job, I enjoy the cafeteria for breakfast when I'm coming off shift) that overlapped the end of noc shift and the beginning of day shift. Very nice!
Ah, forget the cards, it's the neat little gifts we wait for
Not so much from our employers - their gifts are dependent on what cheapo gadgets arrived in the container from China, but we get great stuff from reps, and there's a particular pathology firm that always gives us something worth having!
hahaha we get one 2 hour per 12 hour shift of making your own sundaes. They hold ours from 7p-9p one night during the week. What a joke. From 7-9 we have patient assessments, meds, prns, a few admits carried over from shift change. Night shift never gets to participate and they usually include all hospital personel at the same time.
