Gosh, I can't tell you all how helpful you have been.....my emotions right now are really in the crapper......I do have several interviews coming up next week and I'm really looking forward to it. I won't totally quit where I am now, I'll be going PRN if I find another job.
I've talked to several people and they all say the same thing........the schedule is set and there is nothing we can do about it. Well, I'm very much a 'team-player', but I'm almost to the point that if these other nurses who have the 'wonderful' schedules (no weekends, 3day weekends) I won't go out of my way to help them.
We have lost alot of people becuase of this and that is sad. We are left to work short all the time and we get the same response..........'do the best you can'.........I'm so sick and tired of hearing that stupid remark!! Wish I had a nickel........
Again, thanks for your support and kind words........emotions are really on a all time high now and everybody is snappy at work.....something that is not like any of us, but how much can you take before you just give up?? One of the girls walked out friday evening after being told that she had 9+ patients.
Again, the 'mother' hospital made sure they were adequately staffed by pulling one of ours to fill their needs, which left us short..........go figure.
Oh.....we also have to put up with a Intake Coord. who assesses patients for admission into our rehab unit who is NOT a nurse, nor has a nursing degree or background........how's that?? sad, sad, sad................... :angryfire
