One of the other nurses called out of work today, apparently she and her whole family have a nasty stomach virus. So at 7:30 I got a call to go to the other office and be there half an hour earlier. I come flying in almost late and go to check the fridge...vaccines have be stored at 45 or less and the frozen ones at 5 degrees or freezer is 6 degrees and the fridge is 50! *cue panic calls* 

Eventually we figured out that a nurse (actually the one who called out) for some reason we can't fathom had turned the fridge to "minimum" as in "minimum cooling" and basically wasted several thousand dollars in vaccines. The nurse manager frantically coerced her husband into driving over all new vaccines so I had things for my extremely full patient load (solidly booked till 11:30). But the same nurse of the multiple mess ups here had unpacked vaccines for me on Friday when she was the phone nurse...we get vaccines from the state as part of a program for kids who don't have insurance that covers vaccines, are on medicaid or a few other specific things (like being a native Alaskan...weird I dunno)...well she put the box full of VFC vaccines away with the private vaccines. So the newly rushed to me doses were VFC instead of private...which meant massive shuffling of lot numbers, ANOTHER trip by the husband to give me the correct things...all while I have an increasingly backed up schedule and angry patients. 

MLK day is always a zoo because the kids are off from school, add to that this mess up and my having to drive to the other office at lunch to work the night shift and my legs hurt. ><
