So this week contained a Friday the 13th.
Apparently that is why every strange thing occurred this week at work.
I, like most Emergency Nurses, am superstitious.
If you say the name of a patient who comes to the emergency department- they will show up.
If you mention that it’s Quiet, it will soon turn into a 3 ring circus with a Lion in charge.
(note- you can say it is peaceful, etc, but the Q word, of the busy word… whew)
Full moon means a difficult shift.
just when things seem as strange as can be, they usually get stranger.
In my home life, I don’t note the dates as often so…I think it’s just hospitals and other joints that operate around the clock.
Anyway. My Week.
On Tuesday or Wednesday, I had a meeting on the calendar for our entire office. We occasional have these…usually totally a waste of my time. But something felt a wee bit different about this.
A new Head of our department was announced. It is a physician. I probably should have seen it coming- the physician has been asking many questions over the past few weeks.
I like her and I was pretty excited about it. Of course after the big announcement and all of us going back to work- questions started to swirl in my head. It would seem our department is now rather heavy on management. As in- we have 2 managers under the physician, each of these managers handles respectively 2 or 3 people. Hmmm.
Soooo….basically I went on with reporting to my manager and business as usual.
Then Friday, I get an email from the Chief Nursing Officer. Seems she wanted some information on a variety of things, which I tried to give her. Then we discussed some other things, and it seems that eventually the plan would be to move me under HER. But no one wants to say that outright.
In addition, I Love Job Security. Right now with the restructuring…things feel pretty insecure.
So…Lets hope for the best shall we?
