Does your supervisor call & text you at all hours? - Page 6Register Today!
- May 8, '12 by PediLove2147If my work is calling me it is because they are cancelling me. I have seen times where we need a nurse but usually I am already working or they grab someone from the float pool. I do have my work set to a different ring tone just in case though.
- May 8, '12 by KelRN215When I worked in the hospital I got called EVERY DAY. Sometimes multiple times in one day. My floor even invested in this stupid robot technology to call people (too poor to give anyone a raise but somehow can afford to buy this program) and leave them annoying automated messages. The robot calls came from a separate number and I very quickly blocked that number after I got called at 12:00 noon on a Thursday when I had worked Wednesday night and was already scheduled to work Thursday night with an automated message looking for someone to work Thursday night. Are you f*ing kidding me? You just woke me up 2 hrs after I finally fell asleep to ask me if I could work a shift that I'm already working? And not only did you wake me up, but now I know I'm in for another awful night since you just informed me that there were 2 sick calls. I wouldn't be surprised if people were calling out after getting these calls because they didn't want to face the horrible shift they knew they'd have.
I am VERY glad that I no longer work in the hospital.

- May 9, '12 by SkyeHawk3I used to when I was younger and thought I had this insane urge to please everybody and that patients would suffer if I didn't go to work. I also didn't want the supervisor to dislike me. Was I stupid! They used me as long as I allowed it and when I left that hospital never missed a beat and did just fine without me.
I am over that 26 year later and I refuse to answer the phone unless I am on call and agreed to that ahead of time. The answer would be a very sharp H*^ no, and I mean no. I have a life and I missed so much of my children's lives when they were growing up because I had the delusion the hospital could not do without me.
