Linda has been part of a Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) group this summer at Iowa Methodist/Blank Children’s Hospital. It’s a 40 hour a week formal gig (educational components in the AM and visiting patients in the PM). Along with everyone’s favorite, on-call in the evenings, overnight, and weekends.
Here’s her group on bow-tie Wednesday. Last week was rather typical 40 regular hours plus 4-8pm Thurs, 4-9pm Friday, and 8 am-8pm on Sunday. Wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t something you had to pay to do!
Outside on a windy day. On call duties include meeting every life-flight and ER ambulance admittance, along with every code blue, death, and patient/family request for a visit. Linda’s advice to all of you – she’d be a lot less busy if you stayed off motorcycles and ladders.
