One day this week while I wasn't there, maintenance came into 10 house and put a cage door in front of the nurses office. Apparently someone's idea was that the nurse could go into the office and lock the cage door and hand out medication to the knuckleheads and they wouldn't be able to actually walk into the office.
Well, there's a couple of things wrong with that plan.
One, they never asked the nurses anything about it and they all say they don't want to do it that way for several reasons. And I've heard that the day shift nurse is going to be really pissed off when she sees that cage door.
I know her. She is a scary woman. They'll be lucky if she doesn't rip it off the hinges and throw it down the hallway.
And two, when they hung the door and welded on the lock mechanism they put it on the outside of the door. So in order to secure it someone would have to do it from the outside. And the same to open it again.
This cage door will only work if you are leaving the room and not entering it. And the door already has a good lock on it so why bother?
We have so many things that are broken that we can't get fixed. Maintenance has no time and no money to fix the things that we really need. But they can spend time and money on things that nobody wants and don't work right anyway.

Have a seat, pal. You'll be waiting awhile.
Monday morning is going to dawn bright and early as National Vanilla Ice Cream Day (really? Again with the ice cream? WTS?), Hot Enough For Ya Day, Gorgeous Grandma Day and Treat A Canadian To Breakfast Day.
Okay, I made one of those up. I'll leave it up to you to decide which one.
