    No work for me tonite! thank goodness, my part of Michigan is getting pounded with snow! And I have got a Red Wings alumni hockey game to go to. Have a great weekend, whether you work or not!

    Those Inuit had the right idea, with all those different names for types of snow. Bet there isn't one for the kind of snow that stops you getting to work, but lets you get to a hockey game ;o)

    Rick,

    I agree with Susy, you need a new job! We still need RN's at ACMC.

    I'll take you toooo!!

    Really that job seems to jerk you around like whiplash. Ever think about ICU or being a staff nurse again so you don't have responsibility for everyone, and no resources to take care of them. There's something to be said for only having to worry about your own behind.

    acmc?????? you mean that unionized hospital out east? lol! :chuckle sorry......i am soooooooo anti-union! bottom line.......i worked in a union with ford once. unions allow the slackers to keep their jobs, with no way of getting rid on them. that is something i cannot handle. jimo :d

    by the way kelly.........you still owe me a beer? any chance on collecting on that soon?

    In any case, Rick, you are very marketable; with your clinical and managerial skills, you really could get your foot in the door at some other institution. Have you looked at what's available? Have you updated your resume? You could find a new job, perhaps go back to school.....anything is possible.....it's up to you. There ARE some nicer jobs out there; sometimes with a pay cut, but the hours are much better.

    One nurse I work with used to be an ICU nurse, and now works at my clinic managing coumadin patients. All the INR results get sent to her, and she adjusts the coumadin dose based on the result. She also still has patient contact by doing coumadin teaching, lovenox injections, fragmin injections, etc. And it's Monday through Friday, 9-5.

    Just something to think about. Life is too short; don't spend it at work or recovering from work.



    Take care of you. :kiss

    Now I'll disagree. I worked at a non union hospital before and I'd rather work for a union! I worked short staffed all the time and the managers didn't give a $hit! Very dangerous and extremely unsafe! 7 or 8 patients all high acuity to myself with no assitance from a nursing assistant. I wouldn't work for the Cleveland Clinic if you paid me a million bucks!
