Monday

Monday again. Seems like this happens every week. Possibly, it does. I am working only 8 hours today, which, after 4 days of 12's (not in a row, silly. But the last 4 days I worked were 12 hour shifts), feels very short. And, I am up on the 6th floor for a change. I have been mostly down on 5, haven't been here for like 3 weeks. Or maybe 1. But it feels like a long time, nonetheless.
We arrived this morning to see a huge white plastic tent taped in part of the hallway. Curiosity abounded, so we unzipped it (seriously, there was a zipper keeping it closed. Very ingenious), and peeked inside. Nothing interesting. They just removed a big cupboard/shelving unit and are plastering it up. I suppose the plastic is to keep the plaster smell from overtaking the rest of the unit.
This weekend, I am on a team of people who are going to brainstorm how to reorganize our supply room. They came around with video cameras to do the before look, then will tape the brainstorm process and the after look. I am a little concerned, because I took it upon myself last year to organize our supply room, used my own free time, skipped lunches and breaks and stayed late to get it worked out, since the supply people brought up a bunch of organizing stuff and just dumped it on our unit for a few weeks. I got fed up and did it for them. So basically, the supply room is my baby. I know where EVERYTHING is in there, and the system I set up is a good one ( according to ME), but the supply people never restock us and everyone is a slob, so it is a mess in there again. But the idea is GOOD. Things that go together are stored together (all urinary things together, pt care items together, IV stuff together, etc). I am just worried that the whole fancy reorganizing process is going to be all about how much it sucks now and how much better it will be once it is done. My feelings may get hurt..... The hospital is paying tons of money to have these professional organizer people come in to do this, so we will see. It is a remote possibility that they have a better idea for how to do things........
