Another day, Another 50 Cents
I am tired. I have found more projects than I know what to do with. So many things need to be better. We should be doing so many things better.
We need more nursing protocols (to add to the gazillion we already have), we need more medicine protocols (we don’t have the ones that really matter), we need standardized discharge sheets (we have none), we need to fix….blah…..blah….blah.
These things will all dramatically improve patient care in areas that have been neglected for years. The time is right and so are the people involved.
I am finding myself at the forefront of this driving force. Finally in the right position at the right time with the right amount of education to really FIX SHIT. No one is saying, “PFC Medic Emily, this isn’t your responsibility. You need to stay in your lane.”
Although I am just too damn tired to write more about it now, I am realizing what an impact I have had, and am going to have in Orthopaedic Trauma at my institution.
This also goes with my Army job as well. Things are changing for the dramatic better. Maybe not in large part to me, but I have taken on my fair share. I hope to be a fairly significant part of that solution as well. I need to write more on this too.
(Sup! Fort Sam!!! I see you reading this!)— I read the IP addresses for the site statistics today and there were some from the home of AMEDD.
So, Army and Ortho/Trauma NP job are going well.
I am going to bed. Yes, it is indeed only 2030 (that’s 8:30 p.m. for some of you.)
p.s. Wish me luck. I’m going to ask for a raise next week. (no, not from the Army…duh!)
