Whats Your Name?

Today was craaaaazy at work. We were super busy and it didnt seem to let up at all. When we left there were still about 30 or more charts to do. I have never seen it that bad.

We had a patient call this morning that had a few issues and Screech Owl told her she should have someone take her to the ER. Let me just tell ya 99% of the time people that call in won't go to the ER. They would rather come to the office and just see the doctor. Most of those times those folks get a rid to the ER from our office thanks to the squad. Today was no different. The woman was told to go to the ER and then her name shows up on the appointment list for this afternoon. She comes in and the doctor comes out of the room and asks me to call the squad and after I do go in the room and sit with the patient till they come. Not a problem. I go in and the patient asked me to get her phone out of her jacket pocket so she can call her work. Yeah she went to work after she was told to go to the ER. Anyway she called work but wanted me to tell them what was going on. Not a big deal but all the sudden I got a brain fart and totally forgot her name! I thought ooooh shit what do I do now?? She actually talked to her work first then handed me the phone which saved me. After that call she wanted to call her sister and Screen Owl came in and had her chart so I was saved. How bad would it have looked had I been like uum yeah whats your name again?

2 In a Row!

Today was a bit on the shittastic side. I think the main reason is because I am in a major funk. I haven't really been in a good mood all week.

The "patients" that were calling in their own prescriptions was caught at a pharmacy that didn't even contact our office. As of right now we don't know if it is an actual patient or not. Hopefully the office manager calls and finds out some info. There was a note posted in the break room that we are having a lunch meeting next Thursday. They never ever have meetings. Who knows what its going to be about but it could get ugly so it should be interesting if anything.

I stopped by the library after work and as soon as I got out of my car I knew something was wrong. I checked all my pockets and my purse then walked around to the other side of the car to see my keys still in the ignition and my doors locked. Fuel for the fire of my craptastic mood. It would not have been that bad except I was still in the town where I work. About 30 miles from my house. I went into the library got what I wanted and walked around the building to the police station. Thank god they are in the same building. A very nice lady at the window took my info and said she would send someone out to help me. A nice cop showed up and in less than five minutes I was in my car and on the way home. If only the rest of the day had gone that smoothly.

Monday Monday

Monday wasn't too bad. We were busy but we or should I say I was able to keep up. The Screech Owl was moaning and groaning about some new pain and doing what should could to actually get out of doing any real work. You know the usual Monday for her. Patients were super bitchy. It kills me that some of them call in and leave a message for one of the docs and then call back every hour on the hour to see if their message has been answered. I would like to bring it to their attention that the docs see patients while in the office and don't just sit around and wait for calls to come in. After they docs answer the messages we have to call the patient in between taking patients back and doing procedures for patients that are in the office. Damn people.

We had some craziness happen too. We call in a lot of prescriptions throughout the day to a lot different pharmacies. One of the pharmacies called us saying that someone tried to call in some prescriptions saying they were from our office. The pharmacy said something was off so they called us. Someone, maybe a patient, called in 3 different prescriptions that were pretty heavy duty. They were just going to let the "patient" come in for the drugs then the cops were going to arrest them. Not long after that call we got another with the same thing at another pharmacy. It was toward the end of the day and I don't work Tuesdays so I hope someone knows something when I go in tomorrow.

Thats all for now.

Busy day

I have a lot of things on my to do list or should I say a lot of things on my do anything but this list list. Today I got a couple things done. One being laundry. I washed all my bed stuff and put my new duvet cover on. It looks really good.

I also made some cheesy cheddar biscuits and they are delicious! I am still finishing up laundry and watching the Oscars. I hope to get more stuff done around the house on Tuesday. I decided to tackle just one room at a time.

Sorry this couldn't be a little more exciting but that was my day.
