So. I started traveling. I hated it. Now I’m doing it again because I need money, but in my home state so I can go home on my off days. Seems to be working better thus far! Once I collect my thoughts I’ll post some stories from the last few assignments. :)
So here’s a chief complaint to kick off the new era!
Patient who had been taking a medication to quit smoking, wanted to know why they hadn’t actually stopped smoking yet. Had not attempted to wean in a month. I guess this person didn’t understand the concept of weaning. And also free will. Oops.
Hello there kids,
I am currently in the Throes of Week Long Hospital Orientation, hence the continued silence.
Start in the ED on Saturday!
Guess who’s going to be traveling?
Hint: it’s me.
Hopefully this will kindle some excellent new stories, as I’ve been a bit fuzzy in the brain lately and obviously this has impaired my wits a bit. Stress from deliberate understaffing plus real life ridiculousness can do that, I guess.
Stay tuned to this space for The Adventures of Rescue Ninja: Traveler’s Edition!
