I do not float to the critical care units very often, but it happened this past weekend. Maybe it was karma after complaining about being sick of work and needing a change. I'm not ICU trained, but working in the float pool you go where they tell you. It was low census so they probably could have sent me home, but instead gave their nurses an extra set of hands.
No direct patient care, okay so actually I was their gopher, bitch or whatever you want to call it, but I liked it. Just run between the units and letting people take a break or help with whatever they needed.
Really anytime they want to pay me to socialize, transport patients, assist nurses and docs without the responsibility of charting or other BS I'm there.
