My Visit to China: Could This Be A Reason Why Coronavirus Started There?

Cycling Energy - And It's Not About Bicycles

How Do You Effectively Manage YOUR Time and Energy? When some earth-shattering NEW content comes along about how to be a better manager of my time, be more productive, less stressed, have more time for family and fun, work more efficiently and be a better person, then of course I need to share. I am absolutely amazed and surprised about the content of a new program by colleague Kate Northrup called Make Time for Business. It is actually so new that it just launched February 4th with the opportunity to review the content for 24 hours before it goes up for sale, and of course I jumped on it to learn more and take advantage of this free offer.

Would this be considered abandonment?

So I work in a poorly managed post acute/LTC we don’t even have DON at this moment (within the past 3 months it’s the third one that quit). I work 7-3pm only RN for 120+ pt’s and very often it happens that the next shift is either 2 hr late or no show. Last Sunday I worked by myself and of course nobody showed up for 3-11 pm shift, administrator made me stay even though I didn’t want to and ended up doing 16hr shift. The most frustrating part of this is that nobody informs me about who is coming to the next shift. I’m so frustrated, my question is: If I clock out at 3 pm and go would that be considered an abandonment?
