Murphy's Law re: Extra Shift

  1. They called and begged for help this morning. So I went in. My new addendum to Murphy's Law:

    "If you pick up an extra shift, you will get the patient that codes all day."

    Poor Zee! Further proof that no good deed goes unpunished!

    Exactly why I don't do extra shifts is written in stone. Fulltime is enough of insanity.

    At the risk of sounding like sweetness personified:

    I ALWAYS give the lightest patient care assignment to the nurse who VOLUNTEERED to come in and help us.

    Isn't that just basic courtesy and common sense?
