Ok, I know that you just got here. I understand you may not be fully awake yet. I wouldn't be perky that time of the day either. I get that you want to get your day started. I feel the same way when I show up at night. And I am sure that your morning is busier, I honestly would never want to take your place. And I know that we have over half the pharmacy in our narc box. But really, how long does it take to count. Five minutes, (ok ten if someone forgot to sign something out). And that is on the outside. Most times 3 minutes and we are done. If you have an emergent issue that you are dealing with where someone is crashing I understand. But refusing just because you don't like to count? Come on. It is part of your job, I promise. It has to be done, it is important. And until we get a Pyxus (or similar) system we will continue to have to do it. End of story, so suck it up and spend 3-5 minutes in the med room with me and we will be done.
just a small town girl in nowhere illinois I work the night shift at a small town hospital. And yes I do like it. With any luck I will never have to work days either! Family and friends are important to me as they have had a large part in making me who I am!
Ok here lies the usual notice that no, I am not writing about you. Yes, I change details of the episode in question. In fact most posts are probably a composite of more than 6 years in the business and/or more than 25 years of life. So no HIPPA rules are violated. Not even close.
