So….the long and short of it is, that I only have two weeks remaining at work. I am currently trying to make sure I tie up any loose ends relating to patients and admin so that if someone else comes along they are not left wondering what on earth to do.
I realized this past week that I do some very random tasks at work, and trying to type up some helpful notes for whoever takes over those random tasks is actually proving trickier than I expected.
In particular, I have found it hard in areas where I have had to use a lot of initiative. How can I type in my notes….”when so and so says this to you, it is best to reply…” without that appearing rather cheeky. I have ended up with so many time consuming, annoying tasks, that were far from straight forward and required tenacity and resolve. One example of my favourite little turn arounds – when someone refuses a request I have made, I reply “I understand, but I will need you to explain that in writing to satisfy our inspectors”. You would not believe how cooperative that makes people.
I have been typing up notes on all the random tasks I have been shouldering for months, and my notes seem really crumby. They don’t really equip the next person to get the results I have been able to get by being a little bold at times. I am hoping that the next person will have or develop that gusto to make sure they do push to get the results they need.
In the meantime, I need to get back to work on these crumby notes, and make them as helpful as possible.
