Still trying to figure out if this gig is for me on month 6. I thank you for all the help in advance for answering my questions.I do home health and hospice. More home health than hospice. Supposed to be mon8:30- 4;30, but it rarely is and I frequently work late without a lunch, or a pee break. And after that I still have a lot of work home.
Besides the paperwork, problems to solve are left for me on my weekends off. Saw one patient late in Friday, saddled with a dilemma, and now I am spending my Saturday trying to fix it. When does it end?
I have a baby shower to go to! Plus, my job is out of c trol stressful and I feel like I'm going to break and really need those 2 days not to think about work. I was told its just the nature of the job by my director in my department. She told me about how she works late and solves problems all Friday night. Difference is she is the director and gets paid six figures and I took a huge pay cut for this job at $32 stinking dollars and hour!
I got out of management because I couldn't bring this home with me anymore, it takes a huge toll on me. My daughter comes first in my life, she's 5 years old, I'm divorced single mom and she needs me to.
Is this normal?
Is this the way it should be? Because if it is, then I simply can't do it. Not for being lazy, but because my responsibilities are tremendous at home. My psyche can't take it!
Partial vent , partial true question. Thanks!
