Dum, Dum de Dum. Dum de Dum. Dum de Dum. (’Emperor’s March’ ala Star Wars)


Yes, the speculation for the next “unannounced” JCAHO visit has swirled madly for the past few months. This has picked up intensity with the floor manager and charge nurses raising anxiety levels over coffee cups balanced on hallway chart racks, and laptop carts in hallways.

I have been in healthcare for 12 years.

This will be the first time I have not wiggled out of JCAHO.

My peer (aka: “the other nurse practitioner”) is on vacation. Scuba diving in Mexico no less.

Damn I am losing my skills.
