As I mentioned to Geena on another thread of this site, I have enjoyed reading the NV posts. I plan to return as often as possible to benefit from and to offer in kind the encouragement, humor, and support that is so evident here.

Thanks again.

Hi Joy!!! Welcome to NV and I bet they'll welcome you with open arms no matter where you apply!!

Kudos on doing supervisory work - takes a special personality to handle the staff AND the management!

Thank you, Kim, for the greeting and the affirmation. Being a house sup does take a special person alright. Along with being older than dirt, it helps if a house sup has:
- short term memory deficits
- a very thick skin
- the ability to sing and dance when no one else can hear the music
- a near-pathological stubbornness
- a true appreciation for the fluid and unpredictable world of medicine
- a love for the warp and woof of humankind

A good stiff drink helps, as does hitting one's head repeatedly against a brick wall to convince one's self that THIS time the staffing, patient census and acuity, the myriad of personalities, and the budget are all going to get along and not one thing or person in the house is going to break, squeal to a halt, or fall on the floor.

Sigh.

Onward! The best is yet to come!

Joy
