The clinic staff is still loading and packing out all sorts of items. One of the managers came by my office and announced "Why don't you put your pictures back up...they bring such color to your office." I collect Mitchell Tolle prints and had a series displayed on each wall. I took them down, all of my family pics, any trinkets patients had given me, and only left my degrees and honors displayed with a calendar from the mother ship. And a clock. One of the bosses was in the hallway going through the list of things to remove and a nurse asked in a droll voice..."will our conversations have to be sterilized?" the manager didn't even look up and replied, "you'll have to contact environmental controls about that". I've heard the hall nurses warning each other to only use sterile words ever since. Goes to show how well she's listening to her staff. Several staffers are hiding things in their cars. Pulleese!!!!
This inspection is from the inspector general and then the next is Joint Commission. Let it be done!!!! We were just notified that about 6 people from the mother ship were coming up tomorrow to do a walk through again. I feel a sickness coming on...not really...but I wish I had the nerve. I promised myself a stress free year...did I speak too soon????
GS is still ill with respiratory. Honey turns 72 this Sunday....I'm taking him to Red Lobster for his meal. Sister had a melanoma taken off her temple yesterday. I started an afghan today. That's life...just bits and pieces of activities and events that make the time fly by...
