I’ve been doing this blog, on this platform for 18 months.
I have struggled with finding the time to write, with cementing the days I publish blog posts.
I have exposed new coworkers to the idea of a blog about the evening shift OR.
I have gone back to graduate school and struggled there as well.
I got my first C ever. EVER.
A dispatch is a communication to the front lines.
I have decided to make a dispatch from the front lines instead.
I am not Kate DeVine.
I write under a pseudonym.
I work in a suburban hospital but don’t identify my location or state.
I work evening shift.
I am the evening shift charge nurse.
I may write about patients but I do not write about specific details.
I may change the ages of patients, the diagnoses of patients, even the sex of patients.
I write about my coworkers, again no names although some have been recognized by people in the department.
I do not watch my tone, or my words, and am frequently very sweary.
I just wanted to reiterate that nothing in my posts can be identifiable regarding patients or the hospital. This is not just to protect them but to protect myself.
