I said to my reflection let's get out of this place

Spent the afternoon learning the new software for charting patient vital signs. Looks easy enough. Therefore, when we go live it will invariably be a big fuckup, a scene filled with screaming, spitting, the gnashing of teeth, and shit flyin' through the air. Should be amusing.

The plan is to have doctors entering their own orders into the computer by 2005.


Sure, honey. *pets hospital administrator gently* That'll happen.

Been thinking a lot lately about the choices that have led me here. Perhaps oncology wasn't a great idea. I don't know. On the one hand, I do deal with dying patients and their families, as I want to so that I can go into hospice eventually. On the other, however, the sheer crazy pace of hospital work makes it difficult to really spend quality time talking with these people. Also, I find myself hardening my heart a little to them, deliberately turning away from the connection I feel between us and know I can nurture to help them, soley because I have to... can't take the time, have to do 29579865 other things and then chart. And on the third hand? I hate hospital work. It sucks. So.

On the flip-side, I actually wrote five words today! Woo-hoo! Maybe I'll get that up to ten or twelve before bed, who knows? I have high hopes.

So, mickeym's the only one with any nasty slinky stories about JC? For shame, y'all. I know you can do better than that.

It's because I only use one icon, isn't it?
