A month of Mondays
It's Sunday night. Tomorrow I will be on call and I anticipate getting called out early. Call me cynical, but I've worked many a weekend on the unit and through the fault of understaffing or weekend apathy, many a braindead patient has gone unnoticed(Sorry 'bout the run on sentence). Monday morning and the head nurses will burst onto the scene, take a census report and demand to know what's going to happen with the grim, head-injured patient in 20 or the stroke in 14. Then I'll be called in to evaluate them. Last month was a little slow, so I guess I shouldn't complain, but I hate Mondays.
