    Hi Rick
    I feel for you, I'm getting ready to head off for a 5 night stretch...
    Get some sleep ASAP!!

    Are they trying to kill you or what? I feel bad as I have had the last three days off! Get some sleep and soon! Take care Rick and remember that we all love you--figuratively speaking of course-- !

    Rick, that isn't very healthy (just in case you don't know it). The idea of being a nurse is to help others, but not to kill yourself off at an early age because of it. Please take better care of yourself; your friends here (and I'm sure elsewhere) want to see you have a long and happy life. Is this because you are still in management and trying to fill out the shifts you're short? It isn't worth it!

    I feel for you Rick. That is ridiculous,they are trying to kill you. Are you using any agency? Are you the one staying because you're management? My manager hasn't touched a pt in years.( she is a figure head nurse manager for the ER). I'd rather work with you, but maybe you need to start delegating or learning to just say NO. Anyway I hope you are ok and get some much needed rest soon. Take Care.
