Work kicked my ass

On Wednesdays I work with N. We work well together and she actually works unlike a lot of people in that office. We kick ass and we take names. Except for today. No matter what we did we couldn't keep up. There were stacks of charts and messages and prescriptions but we never got a chance to sit down and do them until after 5.

We gave flu shots like crazy, had a few blood draws but then this afternoon we had 3 well baby checks. The mother of the one baby never shows up for the appointments. I would say she shows up maybe one time out of five. The baby had an appointment at 2. 2 came and went with no sign of the baby. We weren't shocked. It's 3 and the moms at the window. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat??!! She's an hour late and we had another well baby check at that time. So we took the baby back but she didn't get seen till after the people who were on time were seen. She was there about 2 hours. The office manager asked her if she realized she was an hour late and the mom said well I couldn't remember what time the appointment was so I just came in. Um she made the appointment today!!! Blah shes a dumbass.

So mind you the office was nuts today and it was very obvious. So whats the office manager do? She runs out around 11 because she has a hair appointment. She was gone for a good 2 hours. Then she was gone way before 5. Mind you she's an RN and she knows how to work front and back office. Did she offer to help? Hell no! But its ok for us to be there till after 7. It kills me how the doctor who owns the practice is all about saving money but he has quite a few people who get paid for doing nothing.
