Good morning to you too ๐Ÿ˜’

Hi management, how are you? It’s nice to see you all bright eyed and bushy tailed. You’re coming off of a full nights sleep. You have quite a bit of energy huh? Sure you do. 

I don’t.

I just finished 12 hours of getting my ass handed to me. I’ve done two CT trips tonight. I got a sh*t show from the OR. I got yelled at by a doc for labs not sent from the previous shift. I finally ate this morning at 5 am and that was at the desk. 

You would know this if you came in and asked me how the night was instead of complaining about the cup at the desk without a lid. No, I haven’t read the email you sent because I haven’t had the time. Yes, the EKG machine is sitting outside a room. You know what else is outside that room? The code cart. It’s been that kind of night… But you wouldn’t know that because instead of inquiring about your staff you came in with complaints.

Maybe, just maybe you could say “good morning” first. Maybe you could take 10 extra seconds to get a feel for the unit and how the night was. Maybe you can look at what we accomplished instead of what we missed. Maybe you could manage to come in with a little positivity… Maybe….

  1. Too bad your managers will never read this post…What kind of managers are they? Hope not nursing! I always said, “Good Morning” and asked how everything was going when I was a nurse manager. Geez…sorry you had, and probably have on a regular basis that kind of experience with your management. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Christine

    1. This post was based off of two previous nurse managers that I’ve had. It really just changed how I felt about them as a leader. I can say the nurse manager I am under now makes it a point to seek out everyone and say good morning. It really gives a lot of respect for her.
