Things that also happened yesterday

"I'm supposed to get a guard made for football."

"... This is the pharmacy."

I have to wonder why so many people think a hole in the wall is Dental, versus the clinic with the great big sign down the hall.

A note to all parents:

If you call us on behalf of your child, saying that she is complaining of chest pain, and you want her to get an EKG, but do not want her transported to the local ER, we are going to boggle at you. Especially when you tell us she has a history of chest pain.  Needless to say, after the patient got their EKG (normal according to the machine), they were transported...

Ranty Pants Time!

What is it about surgeons that causes them to have a pole stuck up their butts?  Pretty much every one I've run into is an arrogant bastard.  When I was stationed on a carrier af ew years ago the surgical techs essentially refused to work with the surgeon because of his attitude. (He eventually did relax some- just in time for him to leave the ship and for us to get a new surgeon.)  More recently I was doing clinic inspections in our Orthopedics clinic and popped my head into the room where their medications are stored and that they also do patient procedures in, only to find a patient prepped for a procedure.  I turn around and make to leave and come back later, only to hear this from the doc: "So are you planning to do this procedure?"  WTF dude?  I'm sorry my presence is harshing your mood, but come one now, my appearance isn't going to cause the world to come to an end.

Om...

I must not strangle coworkers, I must not strangle coworkers...

*My* special liberty damnit!  It's been approved by the CO and everything!  So why do you keep trying to guilt me into working on my day off?

30 or so guys dressed in nothing but green and orange body paint and speedoes just ran by.

And now there are catboys.

I never thought work could be so traumatizing...

Temp in the pharmacy when I got in to work at 11am: 61 degrees.
Temp outdoors: 86 degrees.

There is something wrong with this picture.

Note to self: bring jacket liner to work.

A Mystery Wrapped in an Enigma...

What I want to know is, when the CO gets an award for the command's hard work, when do we get the award for actually having done the work?

To my Supervisor:

11pm on a Sunday? Not the time to be telling me you want me to work the PM shift tomorrow.

Dear Doc,

No, really, you aren't special, Department Head or not. You still need to follow the same rules everyone else does. So yes, I am going to hassle you because not only have you used written scripts when you aren't supposed to be they're also written in a way I can't fill. Oh, you're going to put them into the computer system? Why didn't you save us both the trouble and do that in the first place?

Why me?

To whom it may concern: How on earth did you decide it was a good idea to put the comment box in the way of the magnet for the dutch door? There's a reason it was put there. I dislike seeing my patients get hit in the head when it randomly swings shut.

To my coworkers: Thank you so much for trashing the pharmacy and leaving it that way. I was so happy to find I couldn't reach the back because of the bags full of meds. And the packs of meds put randomly back on the shelf? Wonderful! That's not an error waiting to happen at all.

In a move that's been repeated I don't even know how many times over the past couple of years, the pharmacy has gone from 'completely closed because of a command event' to 'open for full business without half your people because they'll be at the command event' within a 24-hour timespan again. And they wonder why morale is so low...

Joking about ecstasy while in earshot of the phone, when the XO is on the other side? Not cool.

Oy

To whom it may concern:

No. This isn't Dental. You've actually come to the Pharmacy. Yes, I know there's a sign that says 'Dental' and an arrow pointing forward, but there's also another sign below that that says 'Pharmacy' and has our hours on it. Please to be reading both signs before asking stupid questions. Thank you!
