At work, the weekend staff get the brunt of the abuse, accusations, etc... We are not there during the week to defend ourselves so it is open season on us mon-fri as far as management and just about every other department is concerned. I was nearing the end of my shift today when a staff member from another dept decided to interrupt the shift change report to be abusive and nasty toward the nurses. She backed down once I stood my ground.
They don't staff correctly during the weekend and they want the world... Those of us who do show up for shifts that noone else wants anyway are unduly punished. They keep adding extra tasks for us to do while decreasing staffing. It's getting ridiculous. It's been many months since I have had time for a lunch break. I am always charting or passing medication or preventing residents with behavioral issues from falling. Sure, I could take a lunch break...then I get to fill out an incident report when our low staffing causes someone to fall...
Maybe mgmt should show up during the weekend and experience the love. It will be fun for everyone! LOL
