Tightening the belt

I thought I was done with this since I left California.

But no!

My hospital is tightening the proverbial belt around budgets.

I have no quarrel with this.

I have no objection.

What I do object to is cutting the staffing so deep that we only have enough people to do the cases.

That means nothing gets stocked.

That means nothing is checked for expiration date.

That means we are running cases until the wee hours of the morning because they told anesthesia that of course they could run five rooms that day, not six and the add-ons backed up.

This leaves evening shift to not only clean up after days, but to run the rooms until way past dark.

I am tired.
