Dr. Griffins’ Hell

One Doctors’ Hell

Well, I finally did it. Nearly 2 years at this job, and I went to work too early. We have a very user friendly system, with a new doc starting about every 2 hours or so, and today I showed up 2 hours early (transcription error on my part).

So, I started the workup on one patient, and went home, had dinner with the family, and will go back to work soon. (And, yes, I have my radio on, and it works here, so I’m still taking care of my patient).

I guess it could be worse, I could have mis-transcribed the other way, and showed up 2 hours late.
