Tonight when I got there @ 1900, we were holding 9 admitted patients in the ED; as we have only 18 beds, you can see the problem. Two left AMA after several hours, and the house supervisor worked some miracle and got everybody out within 3 hours. However, by then the damage was done, and we ran until about 0400 to catch up.
I only have 3 more shifts to go at this location, then I move to a new place. I’m already starting to wonder if I’m doing the right thing in changing jobs. (I truly believe the answer is yes, but it’s still hard).
