The Wisdom of the NHS

My trust, in its infinite wisdom, have decided to put me on a 2 day study day to provide a "basic knowledge" base for daily practice - measuring and recording vital signs of patients.

I've even been given homework. Label the basic anatomy of the chest and respiratory system, what is pyrexia, hypothermia, how should I take a pulse. (This grade A in A Level biology might finally pay off for me)

This would sound great, if I haven't already been doing it every shift for the last 4 weeks since I started. Make that 9 weeks by the time I start the study day.

Don't even get me started on the fact I have to do a study session for HCG tests, but curiously, not for ECGs...
