Advantages/ Disadvantages of day shift

Now that I've been working days for nearly six months I've had a chance to completely adjust. The following is what I find to be the advantages and disadvantages of working days.

1. Advantage: Doctors, they're always available to help the patients if you need them.

1. Disadvantage: Doctors, they're always available and sometimes irritatingly so.

2. Advantage: Doctor's orders. They keep patients ticking.

2. Disadvantage: Doctor's orders. Most are stupid.

3. Advantage: Bosses, they're always available

3. Disadvantage: Bosses, they're always available

4. Advantage: The Cafeteria is open.

4. Disadvantage: The cafeteria is open and the food is all fast food.

5. Advantage: Days off; you don't have to waste one to recuperate

5. Disadvantage: Waking up early.

6. Advantage: The RT bosses are always available.

6. Disadvantage: The RT bosses are always available.

7. Advantage: You're forced to use the stairs more often, which is good exercise.

7. Disadvantage: The elevators aren't where you left them, as what occurs on nights.

8. Advantage: With more RTs there's a greater likelihood you might get called off if it's slow.

8. Disadvantage: If its slow you get called off and have to use up vacation hours.

9. Advantage: More people available to help out.

9. Disadvantage: Too many people.

10. Advantage: You don't have to be up all night

10. Disadvantage: Fewer parking spots, and you have to park way out in BFE.
