to call state on your own facility? I feel like management needs a wake up call.
I work every other weekend as full-time is suppose to.... and weekend staff is terrifying.
I almost always work with a CMT. This mean I have all my own work, plus their injections, charting, head-to-toe assessments, and skin assessments. The CMT does all treatments, except extensive time-consuming treatments (the ones you really need them to be able to do).
We have no receptionist! I literally have played recpetionist for 30 minutes one night, before I had to just step away from the phone and let it ring endlessly. I had to go back to being a nurse! We get tons of complaints, I've called the facility once and the phone rang for 7 minutes straight. I ended up having the call the Supervisors personal cell phone
to get a hold of someone.
The aides are always working short. They almost never have less than 15 patients, and when they are that short, they don't have to give showers (I don't know whos rule this is) so basically no one ever get a shower on the weekend.
It's just stressful and insanity Saturday and Sunday. And Monday when management comes in and audits charting, assessments, treatments, if you forgot one (which how could you not dealing with what you did all weekend) you are written up!
Everyone is over-worked, and punished for it when it's not their fault. It's demoralizing and no one respects their job it seems, which means care isn't as great as it once was....
Would calling state DO anything? Is it wrong to do?
