I have been working nonstop the past week because I am determined to buy the iPad. Today, it's a 12 hour shift that is completely overtime. (Woohoo!)
7p to 7a is about the easiest 12 hour shift you can do because of a couple things:
Number one, you only have to do vital signs once.
Number two, your people are asleep half the time.
Number three, it starts harder and gets easier.
I have 17 patients at this exact moment in time and no bells have gone off for two full hours.
Ahhh. That beautiful sound that is silence.
