One of my coworkers said that it was like a scene out of the Wizard of Oz. The twister was coming and everyone was running for their lives. I’m really sorry that I missed JCAHO’s grand entrance into the Greatest Hospital in the World. Our unit was chaotic. It was filled with wild patients, and as always, we were understaffed. I heard that my boss called my other coworkers, begging them to come into work. They all declined her invitation. I guess my boss misplaced my home phone number. I never got a call. Maybe she was afraid that I might tell one of the inspectors about the JCAHO Readiness Swat Team, and what really happens on the unit.

Sometimes it pays to be a smarty-pants.
