The nurses at my LTC got tired of "getting in trouble" for staying overtime. So they are leaving on time now. However, there is one big problem now. The patient's charts are practically empty !!!!! The nurses aren't doing their "required charting". They are going home without doing their charting!!!!!

I would keep charting and if you have to rack up the overtime to do so, then so be it. Call their bluff. At my last job, I had to get an hour of overtime every night to finish charting. Each time I got some stupid little yellow "write up" paper. This went on for over a year. I literally "wallpapered" a large chunk of my basement den with those stupid pieces of paper. Cause that's all they were.... pieces of paper. But not charting the care you give can come back to haunt you, legally....
Thanks BrandonLPN for advising us to call their bluff. So they wrote you up for over a year but still did not fire you. That's a relief. I am glad to hear that you found a good project where you could actually use all of those yellow write up sheets.
