What a difficult week.
SO much happened.
On Tuesday we had “executive quality rounds” So essentially, all of the suits from the 7 hospitals in our system showed up…and walked about our facilities, engaging the staff and discussing quality initiatives.
As you might imagine, we were pretty nervous.
It actually went extremely well. The staff were engaging and great. The quality measures were good and we were rewarded with the news that our hospital, once not doing too well, was the second highest scoring hospital in the system for LeapFrog data. As an aside, I am not really a fan of leapfrog. I feel that most of these quality reporting entities are in it for their own profit, and a score on a piece of paper doesn’t always accurately reflect what’s happening at a facility. That being said, it feels good to have a good score reflected out to the public.
During that time, I was treated with the joy of having ALL of my bosses literally in a room together. Can we say awkward.
The next morning, my manager was all a twitter about our success. I dumped cold water on her immediately letting me know that I was leaving.
She promptly turned into …
Seriously. I was suddenly the Spawn of the Devil. She got on the phone and trashed me to several people. It actually upset me more than I thought it would. In addition she started to discuss that I was “Saying bad things about the hospital” It’s true I’m ready to leave, but what is there bad to say about the hospital? Like…”Leapfrog scores are great…”
Luckily reason prevailed, and my big boss called me in and said, “Watch your back, do not talk to those ladies, work your notice and do not engage.”
It’s pretty uncomfortable, but also a little bit amusing.
So that all threw me for a loop. Add in issues with Ebola, and my own slight anxiety about transitioning to a new role where indeed success is never a given…
WOW. On top of that. I started a taper week with running, so less running. more emotions.
I have about 20 work days left. more like 19 because of some MD appointments.
May I live through them without completely blowing up.
