nursing home exp

  1. I am a LVN (working for a month at this facility)

    I work at a nursing home noc shift i handle two station 40+ residents (its busy if i have an emergency i have to send someone out) .....as a new grad i feel frustrated and stress out. I really care for all of the residents but i have big problem the new assistant nursing director is crazy....she keeps bugging me during the day calling at my house (while i am sleeping) becuase i dint chart right or assessment not right ....like she doesnt care if i have my sleep or not. i talk to the DON she said she is like that. i found out too why is this shift is open because of her ...two nurses resign because of her. she likes putting people down. i heard she always write people up and thats crazy!!!i
    i think she doesnt know how hard it is to work at night shift with 2 stations. i am by myself with no supervisor to help out.

    i just feel stress out not enjoying nursing at this facility.

    Maybe you should think about looking for another job. It doesn't seem like a safe place to work and yeah...your boss sounds absolutely insane. All the best to you.

    This is sad, do not risk your license like that, this is too hard for a new grad, you need a supervisor there especially it is 2 floors, that's crazy

    This sounds like the last job i worked at... The night nurses handled 2 stations and the units were completely seperated by double doors ,so the nurse could not see both units at once. It was run by a crazy DON as well....anyway If I were you I would turn off my phone off.

    Very simply, get an answering machine and stop taking her calls. Or, tell the DON that you are going to tell her to stop calling you at home and are going to hang up on her so she knows what you are going to do--and then do it. Tell her that she is to leave you notes on your time card or somewhere else, but telephone calls to your home about your charting are to stop.
