    I'm organizing a covered dish lunch for Friday so we can celebrate ourselves. The hospital has gifts and little things going on, including the annual Nurse of the Year and other excellence awards.

    Our facility combines nurses week with nursing home week - celebrated the week of Mother's Day. We have special events each day, special "dress up" days. On Wednesday of that week we celebrate employee recognition day - we receive a pin for years of service, employees who were employee of the month over the past year are recognized, employees with perfect attendance are recognized and we have employee of the year presentation. Afterwards we have a buffet with cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, cake, then play a game of take away. All during work hours. And for the nurses, last year I think we got a $10.00 gift card for gasoline. On Friday we have an ice cream social. HMMMM!

    A couple of us are taking our CNAs out to lunch for some time out and fellowship. I really think they have the most difficult job with our hospice patients.

    I'm not sure if they have anything planned for us...I'm too new to ask and complain!
