The Return of Red

So. I am not yet done my orientation to the hospital - and I had a student all weekend! How ridiculous. We had a good time though - me and my little student. I taught him how to do trach care. I remember how awkward and awful I was at that when I first started my practicum, and how I learned eventually that it is actually no big deal.

Today I orientated to a long term care facility and was pleasantly surprised. It's more like a family environment there, with long term vented patients hanging out and watching tv - or playing on their computer - or whatever the eff they want to do.

I've completed my wards orientation. All that remains is my ICU orientation! Almost done. Working is actually unbelievably exhausting, which is what is keeping me from writing. I don't know why, but at the end of every shift I can barely function. Also, I have the infamous registry exam hanging over my head. I really need to start studying for that! Oh to be a REAL RT.
