    Sleeping, or giving the appearance of sleeping , is grounds for immediate dismissal.
    There is a reason for this. The sleeper is incapable of performing their duties.
    Your relationship with the sleeper is a moot point. Sleeper is sticking you with THEIR nursing responsibility.

    Why would you accept taking over their duties.. while they sleep?

    Your husband cannot be expected to understand your stress level as a nurse.
    Vent your nursing frustrations to those that can get it.
    However, he is your husband.. your chosen life partner. He is drained and exhausted also.
    To Hades with the housework. Spend your time off together having fun and remembering what brought you together.
    Prioritize.

    Best wishes.

    You will either get the easiest patients, or the most difficult patients. Your assignments as a float nurse will completely depend on the personalities of the unit charge nurse.

    As they get to know you , that could change. As with any new position, you will need to prove yourself.

    You do not have the "right" to refuse to carry out the physician's order. If the prescribed RX does not handle her pain, you have the right to notify the physician and the pain management team, and institute other therapies, such as heat or cold applications and repositioning.

    You do not have the right to judge her based on her psychiatric history.

    You CAN get her comfortable... perhaps, if you spent less time judging and more time thinking of alternative and adjunct therapies.

    My manager's age is not an issue, as long as they respect ME and take into consideration my depth of knowledge and my years of experience.

    Report the issue anonymously. You still have a duty to report, now the powers that be can investigate.
