Sandoval and I on the lice duty that never seemed to end
The sign Shaun and I made for Krystal who had to be on lice duty far too often!
Today we finally admitted over a hundred patients and their escorts. I was on lice checking duty and treatment for over nine hours or so. It was chaotic but we got a system down and made it through the day. Still not a fan of lice or ranks either! I basically checked every patient and escort that came through today for lice (250) and we had to treat a lot of them with shampoo, then comb out all the nits out of their beautiful long black hair. I also got unduly yelled at in front of lots of people who didn't stand up for me at all. I had to defend my ground on the most illogical argument I have ever been in but whatever. This lady chose to be rude but really she just sounded completely ignorant about her supposed position oh leadership. I will be working nights now too, which means il be turned around again oh well. I had two bowls of ice cream today to get me through it. Please send uplifting emails I could use one, thanks.
