I kind of forgot that I had two days of Med/Surg orientation this week. It has been over 10 years now since I have worked on a Med/Surg floor and have only had to float as helping hands two times in those 10+ years. To say the least I’m no longer comfortable with my sick people critical thinking, meds or lab values. Even the swing bed, rehab and waiting for a room at the Elder House patients are a stretch for me. This is a good opportunity for me even though I don’t really want to do it. I’m going to just have to remind myself throughout the shift that it doesn’t hurt me to have this experience. We had a mini, cake only birthday party for Hannah. She doesn’t want her birthday presents until her birthday and well, I can’t blame her for that. Chad had picked out the most amazing colorful cake he could find. The kids were in awe.
We made left over fish fillet sandwiches for lunch from our rock fish. Then the cake for dessert.
