I work 11-7 at my job.
There is state mandated training for all staff..we have to have a certain amt of hours of dementia training by a certain length of employment.
The issue is, my job does not care about night shift!!
I worked 11-7 last night and then there is "mandatory" training from 10am to 4pm.
If i leave at 4 that puts me home at 530 w traffic. I have to work tonight 11-7, I have to leave my house at 10pm to make it to work by 11.
I think it is absolutely ridiculous.
It is unsafe and i scare myself driving half the time, and a schedule like this is pretty torturous..i do not want to put my life, my car's life,
Or even my patients and license at risk when having to attend these "mandatory" trainings. I have not attended these before and ended up getting written up for it, even after explaining to my DON why times like these are not feasible
For the 11-7 shift.
Has anyone ever run into this?
I am frustrated and sleep deprived.
