Falling Back... aka the Night from Forever

Anyone else find that the longest night of the year is always one of the slowest?

Just makes that extra hour draaaaaaaaaaaaaaag

A little more.

We did get a good chuckle (ok, that's a blatant lie... we laughed our butts off!) at the three day nurses who all showed up promptly an hour early for their shift. Not feeling a whole lot of sympathy at that point.

Shouldn't we institute a policy of fairness? If the day shift would agree to show up half an hour early, we could split the difference.

Yeah, I know. It'll never happen.

Ugh. My bed calls.

I always thought that night nurse got the shaft when it came to daylight savings time.

Yep, the night nurses had a good laugh this morning when the unit secretary pulled in an hour early. BUT, the laugh was even more gut wrenching when one of the aforementioned night shift nurses showed up tonight an hour early!! It's bad enough that she had to work 13 hours last night...but two nights in a row?

We do split the extra hour with the oncoming day shift - just assumed that everyone did.. Guess we are lucky, although there is always one nurse who forgets despite the reminder calls put in the night before...
