Finally, this year is over...

Monday, December 31, 2012

Got a call from moms facility to give me a progress report. Somebody must have shaken the basket after I told them I knew it was food poisoning. They called to etll me she is feeling better. I figured that since they discharged her from teh hospital and was already eating a regular diet there..
Captain Obvious..

I know this sounds petty and snotty, but if you ever read a slim little paperback called "The Peter Principle" you would be sitting there nodding your head. I read it in the ninth grade and it stuck to me like tightwads to their wallets.

I cannot even imagine hiring people for that kind of responsibility and not even being embarrassed when they miss the mark so much. I am embarrassed FOR them! These people make a minimum of $25-50/ hour!!! Plus full benefits!!
I did more as a co-op student at age seventeen IN TRAINING than any of them!! So sad..

I would not even consider any nursing position in this city unless it was hospice or a doctor office. The policies and procedures at these big places are like a machine,,
vent over,, time to go bite my shoe, look in the mirror and smile at that weird chick I see there.. She understands..

    It seems like it's getting worse.
    Have a little taco sauce for that shoe. Maybe it'll taste better.

    It's really sad how these big facilities are. I don't even trust the local hospital as they totally violate HIPPA

    I absolutely love that. Next time I feel like my head is going to explode, I"m going to do just that!

    Hope your year gets off to a great start!

    Hope 2013 someone will knock some sense into the facility.

    roberts 85 year old mothers facility has the management and Robert get together quarterly. they discuss issues of the facility or what his mom is up to. she hates their food I love their food she brags it's not mcdonalds I brag it's healthy and a repat at the enxt meeting. the staff is friendly but the nurse there is an idiot who thinks she needs to go to ER when she ahs a runny nose.
