New Job Update

Well, the first few days of the new job have been fairly insignificant, but have made me happy, nonetheless. It took most of an 8 hour day on Monday to get my schedule figured out and the many classes I need, scheduled. I am so excited to be back in a learning mode.

The rest of the week was filled with OR time for intubations. I was fortunate and got paired with an anal retentive anesthesiologist who was an incredible teacher. Prior to his current role, he was an emergency medicine physician. We spent a lot of time on basics to include maintaining an airway with an oral adjunct and mask. This skill gets glossed over in many cases and I have a new appreciation for it.

I spent Friday with my preceptor. She is so much like me it is scary. I just hope I gain half the knowledge she has prior to my retirement. I need to come up with an alias for her as I believe she will get lots of print time here. Utterly Amazing would be appropriate, but that is just too damn long. And I haven’t been on scene with her yet.

Just waiting for this damn boot to be officially “d/c’d.”

Back for more with her tomorrow.
