I’m not supposed to be working this much.
I should have realized that opening the expansion of the hospital would come with some serious hours attached.
I’m not sure why, though.
I was involved in some of the planning.
I went to the opening day party.
On my lunch break. (The falafel pita was wonderful! More foodtrucks!!!)
And I worked my regular shift.
Plus an 8 hour pediatric life support class.
Plus a 2 hour mandatory education class.
Plus a one hour seminar on staff injury that I chose to watch.
Plus a one hour seminar on leadership roles.
Plus 24 hours of week call (we worked 6 hours).
Plus 48 hours of weekend call (we worked 12).
Plus 4 hour professional nurse council meeting.
Plus evenings has been slammed all week.
No, I’m not really sure how I got to over fifty hours.
Not sure at all.
