Okay, here's the thing...it happened where I worked before, (nothing was done)
it's happening where I work now, (the bosses know and don't do anything) and there's really
NOTHING I can do about it, but I just need to VENT!!
It is SO annoying and infuriating to me that some of my coworkers get away with SLEEPING while sitting
upright in a nurse's station, *OR*, even better, they sneak off somewhere for a little nap.
SOME charge nurses make them clock out and go home, but most do not. Where I used to work,
ONE time caught sleeping was IMMEDIATE termination; but again-----they let it slide many times.
I walk the hallways, I slam down coffee, I go chat with people on other floors, I offer to turn/ change
with the aides, I go listen to a patient who is lonely and wants to talk my ear off in the wee hours of
the night, I clean the breakroom......WHATEVER I can to stay awake!
And NOW, OH. MY. GOSH.....when I didn't think it could get ANY worse, one of our new coworkers
is on her tiny iphone alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll night long, playing online ------and NO ONE DOES
I would LOVE to nap and play online all night, but umm....it's NOT ALLOWED! I would be so EMBARRASSED
to be so unprofessional! I keep telling myself "get OVER it, life aint fair"!! But like I said, just wanted to
VENT and see how many of you have these same coworkers................UGH!!!
