Last night I was on the one part of my job that I just do not enjoy. ORDERS....
We put in the dr's after they've seen the patient and I do not enjoy it one bit and to boot we have a new system that I've only had the privelege to be on once or twice because were so busy that it was next to impossible to sit with someone to learn it.
I felt so like a fish out of water. But I plugged away. The kicker is I am in the same spot tonight and tomorrow night! Tomorrow night I'm on my own, as in Fast Track you are the only clerk that is sitting in front of the dr. At least we don't see too much in the way of orders in that section!
Years ago I had an email or read an article about hanging your worries on a tree. I have used that for a long time when the going gets tough. That poor tree next to the drive has a lot of worry hanging from it! The concept is to stew about a situation for 10 minutes or so, I use the if I'm not over it by the time I drive home it goes on the tree.(25 minute drive) So if I have worries or ill will towards a co worker, and we have a couple that are just snobs, then I touch that tree on the way to the front door and walk away from the hurt, stress, anxiety that is caused by the situation.
Sooo....I am praying that the next two nights are as easy as last night was and that we don't have people that need the ER! But if they do, I'll just calm myself down and forge ahead and pray for 12:30 am to come so I can clock out and go home.
Have a great weekend....hope your weather is as springtime warm as mine is
