Thank you so much for your input. I appreciate it.
We are trying to come up with some rules for time off. Something that is fair. We have about 100 employees so obviously not everyone can be off during the summer. Right now we do first come first serve and let people have 2 weeks. I am curious what other hospitals or individual units do.
We use the type of rotation the last 2 talked about. Divide staff into ABC rotation. All the minor holidays divided equally. Thanksgiving, Christmas, NewYear's....you are off the full holiday for one of those and then you work either the eve or the day of the others. So staff knows in January what you are going to be doing for the rest of the year. If anybody wants specifically how we divide it up I would be glad to email you or post it. It's the most fair of any place I have ever worked. It's great for the people doing the staffing.....no whining.
What would you do...I am a fairly new charge nurse. One of my CNA's has been working extra on another floor. When I came on shift she was working with us (her home floor). I said Hi..you are working with us today ...implying good to see you. She came to me later and told me she didn't appreciate my sarcastic remark and that's was why she was picking up OT on other floors. I was stunned and told her I was sorry that I meant nothing other than to say Hi..... What am I missing here?
