I am an RN in a LTC. I am the only one where I work so I carry alot of responsibility and have no back up. My boss continues to add to my schedule things to do and I am already overloaded. This is starting to affect my ability to get things done in a timely manner and I am cutting corners in a lot of ways. I am lucky to have this job as I am middle-aged and had been on disability. I am afraid I may end up there again. My doctor thinks I need to find a new job as this one is too stressful and I work extrememly long hours already. Haha. It took me two years to get this one. Basically, I love what I do, but I hate that it is becoming too much for me and having me to cut corners in care. Nothing against the law, but what I feel is not good care. Any advice? Thank you in advance.
