I have to agree with what others have said, Belinda. I wouldn't want you to jump from the frying pan into the fire ~OR~ into another frying pan. Where I work on a Med/Surg unit, I can count the nurses I like to follow (from 7-3 shift) on one hand because the others I follow routinely leave stuff and are NOT detail-oriented. Yes, it's a 24 hour job, but I would feel my nerve leaving some of the unfinished business for 11-7 shift that is left for me from 7-3. If there are extenuating circumstances-- the shift from hell, understaffing, etc-- we all are understanding. But last time I worked, a patient who'd had his foley D/C'd the day before had voided one time (time unknown) on 11-7 shift-- had not voided entire 7-3. After report, I asked the 7-3 nurse if patient had been bladder scanned. Got a blank look from her and she became a little defensive, but scanned him before she left. (This is someone who ALWAYS leaves on time.)
All that is to say, we all need to speak up more or we get what we get: Anger, burned out, frustrated, and overworked. I would want to know if someone was upset with my care or that I was leaving things undone, rather than griping behind my back. Conflict and confrontation can be awkward and uncomfortable, but in the long run, it's better than the anger and having to look for a new job-- AND, as others have said, you will eventually have to deal with this in another job, unfortunately.
Another thought, have you tried talking to your nurse manager or DON about your feelings and about possibly leaving? It sounds like things are pretty lax at your facility, and I would definitely go that route before bailing out. If you really can't take it anymore, I would make sure that whatever hospital you apply to has a good and long orientation time for you. If you have a refresher course you can attend, that would be helpful, too. Sometimes, knowing you have options can make difficult circumstances more bearable.
