Night’s new roster has been agreed and
implemented tonight, though I note
she has yet to respond to the
Her duties have not changed, so we
anticipate no need for any
upsurge in imposts, overall hours
remaining roughly the same.
P.R. and H.R. should be aware that
scare-stories are circulating of Night being
under-staffed and over-stretched:
firm denial is the line to take.
Point out that, although it is true her
watch correlates with
low patient outcomes,
Night is not a nurse, and that the
demands from the young, ABC1’s and
even poets for Night’s services has
been in steep decline,
year-on-year, for some time.
And can whoever sees her next please
remind her that we in this service see
Night as merely an extension of day
but with less light.
