Every since I started this job a year ago, I daily pray for wisdom.
Recently I received some very specific wisdom as to a way to do my job better.
I'd been thinking about how I spend too much time in my office and not enough time out on the unit. Although I walk through the building a few times each day, I feel like I'm not integrated enough with what's really going on. I have a lot of paper/computer work that needs to be completed.
Yesterday morning as I was waking up the thought came to me that I need to take my lap top and sit out at the nursing station and complete paperwork. I can't easily get internet connectivity at the nursing stations, but I can work on documents on the computer. Yesterday I spent about an hour and a half at station 3 and today I spent about an hour at station 2. It's a good idea. I'm just sitting there doing my work, but the line staff are seeing me. I'm overhearing things that are going on. I find myself questioning why I didn't think of this before, but it just never occurred to me.
I'm grateful for the idea.
