Ok, here's the story. I work in a small rural hospitals ER. Tonight an MVA came in.... by two ambulances... 6 patients total at change of shift. My ex takes care of the kids (12 and 8) while I work most of the time. I called the ex and told him I was going to be late. He blows up. To make a long story short... he does not understand why I have an obligation to stay. (Only one RN after I leave) I have tried to explain to him the morals, and legality involved as well as the risk to license and job were I to leave. Has anyone had similiar experiences? I would be most interested in those with a close relationship with their (not too bright) ex. He thinks that as soon as 11 rolls around I should leave, regardless of what is left in the ER. We can get very busy at times, and I don't like to leave people hanging. We have had this discussion (argument) a million times. Help!
