All I can say is WOW. I work in vet med. Essentually I'm the dental hygenist, rad tech, lab tech, anesthetist, surgical assistant, pack wrapper, "nurse" janitor, receptionist, cage/kennel/stall cleaner, etc. Basically I do everything except diagnose, prescribe treatments/medications or surgery. Yes I has a BS in veterinary technology as well as advanced training and I still clean. We don't have housekeeping staff. The staff and the doctors do all the housekeeping at our hospital. This means everything from cleaning and sanatitizing cages; cleaning the surgery; putting packs back together and sterilizing; maintaining and cleaning equipment; laundry; dump trash; clean trash cans; grounds keep; etc. We take bags and buckets of trash out to the dumpster. Since our patients don't use the toliet, these bags and buckets are full of more then just paper waste. A five gallon bucket of horse manure can easily weigh 50#. I'm just shaking my head.
Sorry my spelling is off, I guess I just lifted one too many buckets of horse manure today.
