I have my mid-year eval this morning. Normally I get "wrapped around the axle" about these things.... must have highest rating at all times... but this year, I am grateful to have a job and will just make it my ultimate goal to find out how I can be most useful. Not necessarily useful to the organization, but to the people in it. Patients and Staff.
On Saturday morning, as my daughter and I left the 6:30 meeting, there was a traffic jam. Traffic lined up for blocks! It took a while to realize that it was people waiting for a large clinic to open so that they could get their seasonal flu shots. Yikes. And I haven't gotten mine yet. I really hate getting flu shots and if I didn't work in a hospital there is no way I would get one. But if I don't get one the infection control nurse at work will make me sign a form that basically says "I realize I am being a menace to patients and may infect them with something that I have the ability to fight but may kill them but I don't care." I signed that damn thing once and I felt like a total jerk, so I won't do it again. I guess I will figure out today how I am going to get my flu shots without tapping into our hospital's limited supply.
OK. I don't have much of any pertinence to say this morning, so I will get on my Mary way. Have a Happy Sober day today if you can. If it can't be happy, at least make it sober.
