Praise from Caesar

The Unit Supervisor just came to me in the ED and took me aside. She is a somewhat crusty lady, thoroughly professional but no-nonsense, the sort who takes shit from nobody and is not above, when required, telling an ER doctor exactly what he can go do to themself.

"I don't get a chance to say things like this very often so pay attention. I had three of my very best nurses ask me this morning, if they could be assigned to this area because they heard you would be staffing it." She paused. "So I guess you must be doing something right."

Praise from Caesar . . . is praise indeed.


  1. that's awesome. congratulations.

  2. WOW!

    Nursing supervisors are not known for their generosity of praise.

    Well done

  3. You said somewhere else that you were a "fast doctor." That's a bajillion points in your favor. If you're both fast and not a total dick, you'll have nurses bribing each other to work on the side you're working.
