    Hi thirdshiftguy:

    I agree with an earlier post: delegate....don't ask for help(since with certain nurses, you are certain to be refused if they think assistance is OPTIONAL)...and make it clear what you expect them to do and why the assignment has been altered. If they have a better idea on how to manage your crises....hear them out and then make your decision. If yours is the best solution...then it's your way or the highway. YOU are the charge nurse for a reason.

    Well if you go postal you will just have to dress the wounds inwhich you inflict on your co workers and then they will get time off not you and you will most likely have to cover their shifts anyway so I do think thats what you want to do.
    If you become a screaming meme : well you will get a nice visit from the house supervisor and when they arrive they will be accompanied by the lady from the screw loose ward with a nice vile of vitamin V. TAKE IT its manditory time off and the sheets are changed daily, and well you have tasted the food its the same food you eat when you get a chance to shove something down your gullet in 10 seconds or less.
    Its a shame you have co workers like you do, next time you see one of them slipping out for a smoke, running away when something is needed, or not heplocking something so they can have a pole thats needed, well Stand up for yourself.
    Your the Charge Nurse, be the heffer we all hate for one to be, maybe when they see you so out of character of yourself someone will get off thier lazy butt and help, and possibly help each other.
    Just a thought

    Well, I guess I can sling my heffer weight around just as good as anyone (and have a time or two too).

    Mattsmom, it's not the place lately, but the people! LOL Yes, it is time for a loooong vacation. But it looks like I'm gong to have to wait until April, if I and my coworkers live that long.

    But the last four days off have been nice. I'll be ready to go back tomorrow I guess. It's Xmas. I'll spare their lives for their kids sake......for now.
