I was Lead today & we were short two licensed staff for dayshift. I was angry to say the least.
This kind of thing is getting very old. It seems to happen a lot on the weekends. Of course, my immediate supervisor gave the same song & dance about how "the whole house is short." Maybe it was, but that doesn't help me. But meanwhile, I was down one RN and one LVN. I filled out my 1st AUP (assignment under protest). I hear there have been quite a few filed at work lately. I may be filling out one tomorrow, too...we'll see.
How's the short staffing going for everyone else?
I'm wondering if the time will come that we have to strike!
