Well, it's 1:30 am at work, the air conditioning is off for 4 hours and we are out of fans. Patients are not happy. Maintenance is not happy. Nurses are not happy.
In addition, one of our nursing assistants was fired this week and is threatening employees, even calling some at home. One of the ICU nurses won't come in this weekend, because he has threatened her specifically. There is now a guard posted outside our unit, though what he will be able to do is beyond me, because they aren't allowed to carry weapons. Maybe harsh language will control the situation. Yep, that should do it.
If that wasn't enough, apparently one of our patients' husband is abusive and is threatening to come up here and shoot her. I heard her earlier on the phone, crying and telling him she will always love him, but she just can't take it anymore. Always love him? Are you kidding me?
I wish it were the dead of winter, since criminals don't like to come out in the cold. Usually.
I wish Hillary Clinton was here to see how I earn "too much money."
I wish everyone would go to sleep.
I wish I were (almost) anywhere but here.
