A little randomness for you on this fine Sunday afternoon...
We saw this cute vintage MG in a New England museum
and considering those are my initials,
they should just let me have it, no!?
I got cancelled from work today. Me, along with several others.
Our unit has 47 NICU beds and schedule 18-20 RN's per shift.
The census ebbs and flows - there are times when we are busting at the seams with multiples and critically ill babies - then there are the lean times.
This lean spell has been hanging around for some time now and folks are getting anxious. With the economy the way it is, job layoffs and single mothers - many of my co-workers are supporting their families on one income and this hits home, hard. The pressure is on for many and with Christmas right around the corner, the timing is just bad.
It isn't that there aren't sick babies, they are just not in our facility. The NICU is a cash cow and every hospital administrator wants one...and without having to prove a need or any sort of regulation, there are units popping up all over.
Maybe this is a post all its own...lets move on!
It 'tis the season to start collecting pretty paper & tags & ribbon!
If you are anything like me,
you can't wait one more minute to start wrapping.
It's not natural to resist wrapping urges!
And speaking of pretty packages...
