I assumed wrongly that the day started at the same time as the previous day. 0700 today instead of 0730. Thank goodness that I got to work early so even after stopping in the ER to talk to someone it was only 0715. The problem is I get very nervous about time and try never ever to be late, so now for the first time in my travel career I was late….also I was 5 min. late yesterday do to school busses and school traffic. We left the house an hour before work…..they were very laid back about it, but I still feel terrible. How could I not see the time was different.
Meditech training this morning was great. Again the staff were very friendly. I am not really a sit in front of a computer girl though. It took a lot of focus to keep my mind from wondering.
Finally after lunch I got to be on the L&D unit. Our induction that I was looking forward to practicing the admission, orders, and charting on did not show up until shortly before it was time for me to leave. I stayed as long as I dared and got to help with all the hands on stuff. I am having trouble finding the balance between being proactive and too high strung.
Chad and the kids drove around and found some cool new parks and coconuts by the road. They were an hour away at some cool beach park when they looked in GPS at how long it would take to get to the hospital and discovered just how far they had wondered. Now we just can’t wait to get home and get into the coconuts….we have no idea what we are doing.
