So we all live with the same CMS 5 star rating system. Part of the rating is the # of RNs on staff. I've put an ad in the paper and on craiglist for RNs. The LPNs I have working for me on a per diem basis give me the evil eye every time I walk down the hall because I won't hire them for the open slots.
Ladies, I don't make the rules. I have to live with them. We are getting more and more clinically complex residents and I need RNs to care for them.
It is not my fault you chose the path you did.
Quit glaring at me.
PS. These are all fine nurses. But, in this business those initials after your name make all the difference.
I'm done venting.
Oh wait....one more thing....where are all the RNs??
