Wow, not having an identity at work is usually a bad thing, but where you are employed, that might work out, assuming you want to commit some crimes and blame others. They would never know who you are. But seriously, to not know your name, at all? Besides, don't you wear name tags or id? Isn't it rather obvious who you are?
Are you a visual clone of Coleen? For these people to not have a clue about you, that is inexcusable. And, this type of thing would make most people feel hurt, as if they did not have value. There are people who I have known who just do not get noticed in life, but you do not seem that type at all. Are people there that oblivious? This didn't happen at your last place did it?
You did a nice thing with Kim. I really do not see her being angry with you. Dr b is not a commitment phobe, he's just really jerky in this area. He has that sometimes male attitude that he is above needing to inform his "women" that he has not made a choice yet. I do not think he actually likes her all that much, but I think he also fears confrontation where he has to say he does not want to be with someone. Now watch this...he'll go on the date and absolutely love her. We'll see though. He is a hard one to read on this issue. But as far as Kim, you did a really nice thing for her. And you are so right. Kim: Let him sweat. He should have to wait, a long while too.
Wendy and Peter: Wow, your place has a lot of action, that is for certain. I feel badly for Wendy, but also for you. How on earth do you get in the middle of all of this stuff? Okay you do get information out of people, but that information is like spy level stuff and it puts you in a bad position, one where you could get blamed for things that don't work out. I am thinking that holding your ears and saying la la la loudly when they tell you things might not be such a bad idea here. Really, it is terrible how often you seem to be in the middle of this nonsense. You might not be noticed for your name by doctors or other nurses, but your loon magnet works well enough.
Happy Anniversary! Doing anything special? And did you make that parole thing up or repeat it from somewhere. Pretty funny.
As far as shifts: Wow, that was a managerial way to say we need you to stay where you are and not move. That is obvious. Getting night shift staff on is not easy for them, and as you are easy to deal with on nights, you stay. That sucks.
I do not think it has anything to do with Peter and you; it is about his need to have night staff and the fact that you have some tenure and he wants to keep it that way. Not good for you, and he sounds like he inquired about your due date simply as a way for him to judge your leave, and his impending night staffing issue. For him: This issue is closed I think. Time to look for another job after this baby is born. Really.
You know if you did the medication error that you would be in prison orange already. Wow, nothing happened to the other nurse? That is incredible.
I hope you have an easier time of it at work. You are tired, and deserve a break. It does sound like you made an in-road into the triage advocacy world. And, that would be good for you, as you have been in that other role far too long. Dr a: Well, I kind of hope that he is not on, but again, look at your other choices bedsides dr a. Yuk.
Michele needs to have you on the brain. Anytime you can bring the topic of working triage to her, do it, Even email is good. Steven
