    The worst part of hospital nursing for me was always working short due to maternity leaves and sick kid calls. It amazed me that in a profession so dominated by women that no one figured out that there needs to be coverage for these staffing issues. I always worked nights and it seemed that no one cared how short the night staff was. When I finally took a community health job, it was a staggering relief to not do the job of 2-3 people every day.

    Quote from TheCommuter
    my workplace's marketing department is promoting the facility as the "Healthcare Hilton."
    Nowdays, I think of "Healthcare Hilton" as a place where underwear are optional and scrubs are orange.

    Oops, did I say that outloud??!
