This month is flying by already. Crazy. I can’t even remember when I was on vacation…it feels like a distant dream.
Anyways, I got up this morning, all ready to fully enjoy my one morning where I could have my English muffin and cup of coffee (have not had any days where I was working…just right to bed), and of course I get a call from my nursing supervisor, wondering if I can come in to speak to her about that med error in the ED. Of course I’m like, umm…can I meet you after work tomorrow since I’m coming in to work tonight at 7pm? Sure she says. Of course, as soon as I get off the phone I’m in tears. I’m so upset. I decide to write up something regarding the incident since I KNOW I’ll cry when I meet with her. I write it up, have Kimm read it, and then I decide to call my supervisor back to see if I can meet with her today, knowing that I will otherwise be thinking of this all day. She says sure, so off I go.
As expected, I DO cry. But I am able to give her my paper explaining the situation and even though it is my fault and I take full responsibility, she realizes that there are several contributing factors and is glad that I’ve brought it to her attention. Of course she still needs to follow-up with the head supervisor of the ED and the overall nursing supervisor, but at this time she feels like it is a process error and I should stop be so hard on myself. Sure…easy for her to say!
Anyways…after that I’m already out so I do the grocery shopping that I had planned to do today.
Some GREAT DEALS at the discounted fruit and vegetable stand at Stop and Shop (if you shop there, make sure to always check it out…usually it’s in an “out-of-the-way” area because they don’t want you to save too much money!). I was able to get 2 large containers of blueberries for 99 cents each (normally these have been running 2.99 or more). I also picked up 3 packages of strawberries for 99 cents each (these have been running close to 2.99 or higher). So I felt very happy about that. Love me some berries. Just don’t love the normally high price (even at Price Rite, they run high).
Home for lunch, then balancing the checkbook and paying bills.
Now finally relaxing for oh about 15 minutes before I have to start getting ready for work (shower, make meal, eat meal, dishes).
It’s been a whirl-wind of a day.
On tonight and then I have to consider if I want to sign up for the overtime that was available for Friday night. I’ll see how I feel after this shift.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
