    This is a first for me. A patient managed to steal a crib mattress out of her room. Her support person took multiple trips to the car, and it's not like we check their bags.

    Today, man.

    Not endorsing the stealing, but hopefully she has a safe space for the baby to sleep at home and isn’t desperate enough for one that she’s stealing the crib mattress from the hospital.

    @ClamJam this family is not outwardly hurting at all financially. The grandmother told me they got a huge haul from the shower including "the big stuff," which to me means crib and such. I could be wrong.

    Crib mattress? Damn my hospital room just had those clear bassinet things. I’m thinking the mattress wouldn’t be useable to someone at home - it’s not like it’s a standard size. Now I’m picturing your hospital as the height of luxury with full size cribs lol.

    Oh that's totally what we have! They took the pillow sized firm foam rectangle covered in plastic. Mostly I'm grossed out because longtime hospital bed. Yeah for babies, but still.

    Haha I stole a bunch of diapers and some wipes but no actual furnishings. Nothing there I ever wanted to see again!

    I was specifically told/encouraged to take a bunch of stuff, but yeah the bassinet mattress is a bit much.

    I had a first today. A patient responding to his internal stimuli by rapping. His flow was incredible.

    How many months have we been living with covid now?!? And our protocol for care seems to be "ohhh whatever works right now" like huh? So frustrating.

    I went to push out the start of an optional web training session about 5 minutes before it started and it showed meeting already in progress so someone was called in. I IMed my workwife because she’s usually the early bird and she said she was on with 20 people already! Why are they so early? Overachievers.

    Still on a work call at 8:11 pm because we had a major conflict in migrating between systems. One of my employees is arguing with my that I'm wrong and don't know what I'm looking at because he claims this was done in April. It wasn't, no one can find proof it was and it's still wrong in production so there is no way it was done but he's trying to tell me it's right in production? The issue stems around unit conversion, like 16oz = 1 lb but we have it as 16lb = 1oz but for work related units of measure. The example he sent me to prove it's right and I’m wrong is a 1:1 conversion for the units he's referencing. No shit it works! It’s 1 to 1, the number is the same at both units!!! He’s telling me the examples I’m sending don’t have data and it’s because the conversions have the numbers so small they round to 0 and he’s refusing to look at it converted until he finds data in the base unit! :bird::bird::bird: I just sent him a bunch of screenshots proving my point and he hasn’t replied in 15 minutes.
