    So, if you are unionized, you always have plenty of help on board every shift. You don't ever have to work short handed. If that is so then it must be nice.

    You know what you need to do for yourself. (((((hug)))))
    I think most of us at one time or another have felt this. It is a mistake to stay were you are unhappy no matter what the reason or circumstance.

    I agree with agnus. I think that if a person stays in a job where they are unhappy, they just start to feel un-appreciated and bogged down. Healthcare is a very tough atmosphere, but it CAN be-and very often is-quite rewarding. You need to be in a place where you and your talents as an Aide are appreciated.

    Caregiver,

    I am curious how does this save time? Is it just because everyone is rushing to and fro (more than usual) to complete tasks in a specific time frame? Or are there really helpful tips that save time without jeopardizing quality of care?

    As to you leaving as so many LPN/RN's on this board point out "A good aide is worth his/her weight in gold."

    Keeping positive thoughts for you and hoping you find a place that appreciates you and your talents.

    Tres
