We're allowed 30 minutes but I don't always get that...sometimes my "break" is whatever food I can scarf down in 5-10 minutes, even if it means eating it cold.
There have been times where I tell everyone, including our monitor tech, that I will be in the break room eating my lunch. A few minutes later the tech calls me, "1 needs to go to the bathroom....oh, you're eating?" I just told you where I was going!!!
Then I start to get angry and I think I have a reason to. What makes me even more angry is when I come out and there are nurses/CNAs sitting at the desk. I know it's "not their patient" but surely they could help out when the patient's primary RN is on break and the primary CNA is nowhere to be found. >_<
