Tonight I work my last shift at my current job. I'm having mixed feelings. I am seriously in need of something new but I am also going to miss my work colleagues so much.
As much as the job has been stressful I have enjoyed every second and I have learnt so much. I'm excited to take what I have learnt and put it into something new. Sadly, I am leaving at a low time. I can't say too much but my place of work received a complaint from a patient of which I am apart of and the last few weeks have been rough. I have never been so upset at work in my life. I keep thinking worst case scenario (i.e I could lose my job over this if it isn't handled well) and most of all I feel like I have completely failed at my job because of this. I'd never dream of upsetting anyone intentionally!
I'm trying to stay strong and see this new job as a new turning page but I can't help thinking that for me to receive a complaint from a patient that I must be doing something wrong? That I'm not in the right job or something. I just feel my confidence has taken a serious knock which is such a shame to leave this job with :(.
On the whole I look back at my time at my hospital with fond memories. I have been there 5 years and it's flown by!!! I did my 3 year training there and my first job post qualifying will always remain there too. I will always be so thankful to them!
Thank you guys. The last 2 years have been a huge learning curve but a real blessing too. I will miss the whole of the team so much!
