    My bff has hers on blur all the time because her whole family is always there. My camera quit working last week, oh well.

    This week's resident is a bit much. She just ordered a social work consult for one of my moms because she's stressed. Well YEAH. She's a first time mom who hasn't slept in 3 days because her baby had troubles latching and chewed her nipples to shreds. She just wants to go home. Social work is going to call me screaming about their workload in the next hour.

    Send help chocolate.

    Just had to do employee talent reviews via video call with the CFO, CIO and other IT leadership. I wasn't nervous until I had to talk about my poorly rated employee because I knew I would be asked questions. The CFO asked me several and I think I rambled a little. :oops:

    Aww that's okay @Imabug1002 . It probably wasn't as noticeable as you felt.

    My petty victory for the day.

    There's this male employee that has been coming up to our OB-ED waiting area and spending way longer than any sanctioned break time sitting on the computer there. He is always wearing gloves, which apparently means he never has to wash his hands. People have seen him go into the restroom then come out with the same gloves on. GROSS. He puts his feet up on the desk with the computer. GROSS. He's been seen there when there are multiple women waiting. So wrong.

    Today I finally see him and notice he's on the computer. When he left, I went and turned off the computer and took the power cord away. Guess who came back barely an hour later? Security was finally able to catch him in the act. A report will be made.

    We budgeted for a project without knowing a lot about it (shocking) but I got an additional headcount out of it. I don't really need that head count based on what I know now but filled it anyway with an employee I had to cut for budget purposes earlier this year that. OMJG. I'm so happy to have him back and he has just been burning through stuff that got behind when we didn't have bandwidth and it's so nice. He just sent me an IM asking for more to do. I wish I had 10 more of him. Also, let the record show that I fought to try to keep all of my people in the last budget cycle because I needed them and wasn't allowed and now they are ALL BACK because we needed them. Like I told you so budget ahole. :jedi:

    I’m glad things are running smoothly for a change! It’s a rarity these days.

    My unit has been out of the most commonly used pads for 2 weeks now. We have 3 options: literal adult diaper in all its bulky glory; glorified panty liner; and the orange pads about the length of an overnight maxi. Every. Single. Patient. Needs these pads. We've been working off the now-disappeared supplies in each room's nurse closet plus "stealing" them from the other OB subunits. Today we got desperate enough to raid the covid rooms (supplies that have not been in rooms with the patients). No idea how long the hospital is planning on playing this game of chicken.

    Sent all my patients home, so I got sent home early. Thank Jeff Goldblum, too, because this sugar high was not going to last me another 4 hours.

    Weird side benefit to the current pandemic, one of my employees is on a H1-B visa and since the US did not use it normally allotted amount of people for family green cards, they are opening up the quota to be filled by people on employment visas. This employee was expecting to wait 7-10 more years to apply for his green card and he can apply now! Claws crossed it all works out and he gets his green card! It will be a huge weight lifted for him and his family and way less work for us every few years to renew his visa.

    How’s that work? I know a couple of my colleagues would love to stay.

    So, I know the employer files to change the visa type, if needed, then the employee does some filing on their side and we have immigration attorneys that do that so I don't know everything that needs done but this is the visa bulletin: https://travel.state.gov/content/tr...etin/2021/visa-bulletin-for-october-2020.html

    And this is the email we got in late September, we're switching his filing from an EB-2 to an EB-3 to be able to apply.

    Holy. Shit.

    The last 3 hours of my shift had 3 days worth of crazy including having THE MOM tell me her baby is being transferred to NICU instead of the pediatrician or NICU telling me; a patient who had been in CVICU after almost dying in an emergency csection FINALLY being transferred back to us literally hours after she was expected; and a hypertensive crisis happening right at shift change.

    All of this on 4hrs sleep total in the last 2 nights. Laissez les bons temps roulez.

    It's one of my old employee's 41st work anniversary. o_O Thanks a long fucking time.

    Wow, I’ve moved around jobs so much that I can’t imagine being with the same company for 41 years. That’s pretty cool though.

    One of my patients bought me breakfast, and I can't even articulate how good that feels :sobbing:
