The one where I get called into work...only to be sent home
Not right home, but I got called off this morning due to low unit census, (lc for those of you who don't have to do this), and then called back in at 1145 to take one patient.
One that was supposed to go to a floor that was "full".
I had her for 3 hours, when I was told to transfer her to the floor she was supposed to go to, which left me with zero, 0, no patients.
Then I was told I might as well go home.
People, I drive an hour and a half to work. An hour and a half back. I was called in because no one in the ICU wants to work my unit. Seriously.
On the up side, I'm home before 9 at night. Downside...I have 2 more days of work left!
Remember, it's just a ride.
