Every once in a while

Every once in a while - every Thursday, to be exact - I pull a double at work. That's where I'm at now, as a matter of fact. And it's not just a 16 hour's an 18 hour double. Yay. I am Super Woman, that's all there is to it.

I just went through last month's paperwork, since nobody else has seen fit to do it yet. We have a zillion documentation errors. I swear, a zillion. See, each client has a file, and every day in each file we mark who gave which meds at which time (each client has between 1-18 meds), what the results were of any non-prescription meds, what the client's hygiene habits were for each day (both morning and evening), whether they met their goals, who they had contact with outside the facility, how many narcs they have left (if applicable), their elimination habits (if required), what services staff provided, behavior data, and what sort of things the client did in their off time. So yeah, there are a billion places in each file each day that can be screwed up.

When I finished flagging all of the spots for people to go back and fix before we officially turn it in to our supervisor, I swear there were more flags than pages. Ugh.

The good news is, I only caught one error that was mine. And I'd just forgotten to sign something. Not too shabby. LOL

Anyway, time for me to go mop the kitchen. (Since nobody else has deemed fit to do that, either, lately.) And when I'm done with that, I'll mop the bathrooms. Yippee.

I bet you're jealous.
