Our residents have been call-light happy for the entire week, apparently. I didn't work Monday or Tuesday but when I got back to work on Wednesday, it was like I walked into a war zone. From 4 to 6, it was nothing but call lights and trying to get fellow aides to help you get people up. From 6 to end of shift at 10, it has been nothing but call lights and cranky residents.
To make it all the more fun, the rehab department published a list of residents who are supposed to be ambulated to the dining room and activities. One is constantly up and down all day long and is incredibly frustrated that they took her wheelchair away.
And this morning, this jack-in-the-box resident fell and possibly broke something. I got a phone call from the administrator about it because I was in charge of caring for said resident last night. She was in bed when I left work at 10; she fell on night shift but whoever put her to bed last night didn't put her tab alert on her.
I didn't put her to bed last night because we all worked together to get things done last night and our last resident wasn't in bed until 10. I don't know who put her to bed. That could potentially save my butt at this point.
The excrement is going to roll down hill now as this is the 4th fall that has resulted in a fracture in as many months.
