Nurse's day presents were kinda lame but these are kinda cool!

  1. I'm just so surprised...

    I work for a large healthcare organization (the largest in the city). Apparently something budget related happened this last fiscal year and they had a surplus of $$$. I won't ask what... I'll just enjoy.

    They gave us all $100 gift cards good at any of 6 different shopping malls in the city. And not just the nurses at one hospital. EVERY employee hired as of 9-28-02 in ALL the facilities gets the gift card.

    Folks, we're talking thousands of employees here.

    Well, Merry Christmas to you!! That is great. I can't imagine that the hospital passed on the opportunity to present you with another 'I LOVE NURSING' T-shirt.

    When I was working at Toledo Hospital many moons ago, we used to get a frozen 10 lbs. turkey for Christmas. We would go out to the back parking lot, and they would throw one to you off the back of the truck. I thought that was most cool back then.

    UPS did that, when my husband worked there, and my employer in college did that, so we always ended with TWO turkeys. We always donated one away.

    I do wonder what the higher ups got if we all got $100 though...
