    Health surveyors have no soul to begin with. They are like the Dementors in Harry Potter.

    I can always predict that one floor will basically own me for the night sometimes. Especially when certain nurses are working.

    Don't pass up an opportunity to burp a colostomy bag.
    Wouldn't it be more satisfying to pop it like bubble wrap?

    I work in a psych/long term facility, so all the doors, excluding pt rooms are locked. I frequently find myself trying to use my work keys to get inside my home, or to use them to try to unlock my bathroom door.

    The number of admissions I get today will be inversely proportional to the number of bathroom breaks that I have time for.

    Sometimes I wish candy cigarettes were still around. I'd take "smoke breaks" with the others.

    Do the department of health surveyors sell their soul before they take the job, or does the job slowly eat it away, like acid?

    It's never too late to start over and get that art degree......or become a dog groomer........or a florist........
    When I was a kid, people would ask, "what do you want to be when you grow up")? That was easy - I wanted to be a florist (because I liked cut flowers). Or I wanted to work in a donut factory (I love vanilla crme donuts). They REALLY were my choices as a kid!

    And I remember those really cool candy cigarettes, too. I take 'fresh air breaks' at times when all the others go out for their cig breaks. They all have to go outside and huddle in the rain in the back of the bldg in the rear parking lot. While I can go to the front of the bldg and sit on a bench under a covered pavilion and look at the garden and watch passerbys or traffic.

    And I make it a point to others that I'm taking my equivalent time-out as they do.
