I lead such the interesting life at times. I've been working, well not everyday, but it feels like it at times. Lots of minutia coming down the pipes. I figure the shit storm known as JCAHO will make it's ugly appearance any day now. That's why all the "powers-that-be" set into motion lame ass protocols. It has nothing really to do with patient safety, but more like how can we irritate our nurses today?
Head (Ignoramous) - "Lets see, should we tell them many licks it takes before we bite into a Tootsie Pop?"
Head (Full of Shit) - "No, I know, that is waayyy too easy and too much fun. How bout if we tell them how many minutes to use the disinfectant wipes, ya know, just in case they need to clean something after coming out of a patient's room?"
Head (Giant Butt)- "Yeah, that's a really cool idea. How long does it take by the way?"
Head (FoS) "Oh, like maybe 3-5min per research, but hey, that could change in the next 48hrs or so."
Head (Up my Ass) - "So like what else can we do to them?" "Can we make them use piggybacks on main IV lines, just cuz it makes no sense at all?"
Head (Ignoramous) - "Now you're thinking UmA, way to go!"
Head (Giant Butt) - "Hey here is a better idea, how bout if we infringe on their rights as citizens, find out what they are posting on FB and their blogs, and if it is even close to patient related, suspend them and report them to the BRN."
Head (FoS) - "Holy crap GB! That is the best idea of the day, but of course, we will implement the rest of these ideas and surely think of more to make them wince and be Whoaz scared for a bit.
