In case you didn't know, this brand-new, big, shiny hospital that we just moved into is not equipped with an auto-clean function.
If you don't clean up after yourself, return items where they belong, and restock your rooms, the magical Cleaning/Stocking Fairy will not show up do it.
Like Fibromyalgia, she does not exist.
If you don't take care of your brand-new, big, shiny hospital, it will soon look just like the other one. Old, dingy, and broken-down. Remember when all of your equipment either didn't work or was held together with duct tape? Including the ELEVATOR!?!? Remember this copier? (Yes, that is indeed a ream of paper holding it up.)
And stop freakin' whining about "how hard you have to work now because everything is so big and so far away."
You have brand new equipment that WORKS in every room. You have a place for most of your supplies and all of your linens in every room. There is a fully stocked med room, supply room, and nutrition room within 30 feet of every room. There is a door, and a curtain, in every room.
If you'd stop bitching for 5 minutes and look around, you'd realize that you are in ER heaven.
Healthcare, and especially the ER, sucks most of the time, and it's getting worse. It definitely doesn't get any better than this. If you can't handle it at its best, get the hell out now.
I'm tired of your whining.
