Woot !!! Daylight orientation is over !!!

  1. I am so glad today is over, my last dayshift orientation, now I can go back to my normal night shift

    I am amazed at how many administrators, department managers, educators, etc... for a small hospital with only 85 patients there must be 65 administrators of some kind or another !!! AHHHHHHHHH back to normal now.

    Badbird, just where are you orienting now? 85-bed hospital? Canonsburg? Washington? Thought you were at the big-bad place on the hill in the city.

    I will be so happy when I can get back to nights, this early morning stuff is killing me!

    Our shifts are 3-3 . . . so you are awake early no matter what. Either at the end of your shift or the beginning. I'm a night person but work 3 a.m - 3 p.m. so I can be home when my kids are home . . and only work part-time because I also have a toddler. My ideal shift . .7 a.m. to 3 p.m. , two days a week and get paid for 24 hours. Either that or just win the lottery and NOT WORK AT ALL.

    My advice . . . don't marry a farmer. Marry a rich guy. (Just kidding honey).

    To answer Zee's question (we used to work together) I picked up a weekend job at LifeCare. I still work 2 days a week at Mercy too, if they cancel then I use UPMC as my back up. Yup, this is one busybird!!!

    What is Lifecare? A clinic? Home health?
  10. by   BadBird
    Lifecare is a long term acute care hospital, vent dependent patients that leave the hospitals but are too sick for a nursing home or skilled care unit go there. I work in the ICU. They have a great respiratory therapy department, aggressive weaning protocols. Some are successful and others move on to nursing homes.

    We have those hospitals down south and out west that care or ventilator dependent patients...
    Most are the Vencor chain .
