I'm outta here!


It's been quite a week. You may remember this post I wrote about a month ago about having the state inspectors come to the nursing facility I work at. Well - this week we had another inspection. This time it was the Federal Inspectors. I have worked at this facility for 18 years and only remember them coming one other time. Apparently a certain percentage of facilities are chosen randomly and are inspected, following the state survey. They are checking to see if the state survey and their survey are in agreement.
I must say that these inspectors were much more human than the ones we had from the state. They were not as intrusive or as demeaning so that was a nice change. They were very particular, but I think that goes with the territory. They left Thursday evening. Now we wait for the official results to be mailed to us and then we begin a plan of correction.
So - it's been a busy, stress filled week, but now I'm off. I have next week off and I'm going camping with my crazy sisters, Terri and Cheri. Our husbands are coming for the weekend and then leaving us to fend for ourselves. I won't have a computer so I'll be suffering from blogging withdrawal. I'll catch up with you all in a week!

When you say camping, I hope you mean staying in an air conditioned cabin on a pretty lake. You don't mean camping like in a tent do you? LOL

Have a wonderful time. Don't forget your camera.

Hugs!

Hi Mari~
I share a state with you now!

And how funny that you have sisters with names that rhyme. I worked with a man at my first job almost 20 years ago who had around seven siblings and they all had names that rhymed with each other (and you and your sisters even, because he was Larry and there was a Terry, but I can't remember if it was a brother or sister).

Hope you're having a great time! I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes is gone for a week from my blog.

My idea of a getaway with the girls is NOT camping! I enjoy it for a weekend, but then I want my own bathroom with running water again. I know you crazy ladies will have a blast though. Can't wait to read all about it!
