6:00am — Another early start. There isn't much excitement during this shift, which is a good problem in a nursing home! Nursing home work is very easy for a division one nurse (or registered nurse) — we do all the medications and oversee everything, but the carers do all the hygiene and cleaning. I don’t know how they do it all, but they are machines!
