    On Xmas we got some cheesecake ordered up. So i guess we all had a slice of cheesecake on our so called "break" for our xmas gifts. It was actually really good because it wasn't made by the hospital. They had it sent from one of our local bakeries and had an asortment of flavors. Of course the chocolate was the best!!! (Duhhhh)
    For those that couldn't have cheesecake got a 5$ gift card to the hospital bakery to pick something else out.

    It hit the spot that day.

    I came to work on the 26th and had an Xmas card signed by our management staff and a mini candy cane. The techs got full sized candy canes, we got mini candy canes. lol

    A $10 gift card to Target- which on closer inspection was deducted from our paycheck. Well heck, if that's how they're going to do it, lets be realistic then, I hardly ever spend less that $40.00 of my own hard earned money at Target Boutique!
    WOW. Just WOW.

    What? Employers give gifts?

    Nothing is what I got. Oh wait, there was a day when you could get coffee and a cookie handed to you by the CEO... But one day and a 2 hour time frame. Missed it

    Quote from JBudd
    an email saying if you miss any of your shifts, even the ones you picked up extra during holiday week, you won't get paid your holiday pay.
    That's just awesome.

    I work private duty, and my gift was left at a client's house. I got a bowl of candy, with a spoon. I also got gift bag (candy, candles, and a few other things) from a client's family.

    I work private duty too, also my gift was left at a client's house. However I never got mine and when I called to tell them I didn't receive mine, turned out they took it to a client that I've seen twice in the last three months, and I don't have this client on my calendar again until 1/31. Oh, well!

    We got some storebought cupcakes, and a threat...

    "If the weather gets bad, you are required to stay overnight at the hospital. You will not be compensated for time spent sleeping at the hospital, if staying greater than 16 hours."

    I called our board of labor. Apparently that's legit. Whatever- if weather gets bad, my SO has a little bronco that he built for rock climbing, so it should be just FINE on the ice.

    We got to plant our own desktop terrariums, with everything we need included. Mine is about to bloom. I like it a lot. It's something that will last and it's a living thing that won't refuse meds, treatment, or ambulation.

    We got a 25$ Walmart gift card and a t-shirt with the company logo. Also a free Christmas dinner but I work nights so I didn't come in for that. We also got lots of cards and homemade goodies from residents' families and a scarf from family. Last year all we got was the dinner so I was pleasantly surprised since I work LTC and I know money is always an issue. I am appreciative. I need a new watch!
