I’ve been giving Flu Shots.
LOTS of them. I think I gave about 50 today. It seems no one else really wants to do it. The Employee health Nurse who irritates me pretty much decided she was going to draw up vaccines and hand them to me to plunge into people. Plus, she does not appear until the very last minute, and then has not obtained the supplies…I am just there to support, but to have things run smoothly, I need to arrive early, get supplies, get the vaccine from the Pharmacy, make sure we have proper consents, etc. I am not perfect, but this woman is kind of a joke.
It is a new Joint Commission standard that we report the percentage of employees vaccinated to the National Health Safety Network, and of course it will be public knowledge soon. SO, for the first time ever, our Senior Leadership is very interested in the Flu Vaccine.
We start at 0630 in the hall way. This morning the Employee Health Nurse managed to knock over my coffee. My Extra special All Organic Sumatran Reserve. I was enjoying that until then. At least she did not bust my nice mug.
Our goal this year is to have 70% vaccinated. So far, after day one, and some early bird vaccinations…we have about 35-40% completed. I kind of hope the other 30% show up tomorrow.
Wow these two weeks are JAM packed with Flu vaccines and educational activities. She better not spill that coffee again, or I am sending her to Western Indonesian to pick me more beans.
Flu Shot anyone? (Frankly, I am amazed at how riled up people choose to get over this.)
