how often are you put down or assign to work the hardest hall at your work place? how often you been told you're too slow? how often have you had the heaviest hall where you are behind and your co-workers who got the easiest halls their done with the work and doesn't come and help you to finish? do the charge nurse or supervisior send anyone to help you? have any of you been writing up because you're to slow?
Yes, I have. It helps if you can quickly identify, who are the most, demanding or needy residents. I've been screamed at, cursed at, and complained upon. So I try to make a quick visit to my most needy residents first. Doesn't always work, due to emergencies, family member visits, Physician orders and calls etc. Also, you don't want to your quiet, kind residents, to be neglected or put off. It's like walking a tightrope, sometime. Take your breaks, get some fresh air, definitely eat your lunch. You need all those things! You'll be tempted not to, but in the end, you'll be glad you did! Nursing can be tough, but very REWARDING!:spin: :spin:
