Everyone is complaining about staffing....
Staffing has been incredibly poor until recently on our Tele unit. You can't give good care if you don't have time to see them until 2 or three hrs into the shift.The staff constantly called the supervisors and director and nothing happened. We finally got fed up and started writhing incident reports every time we were dangerously short and threatened to quit in mass. What do you know staffing improved dramatically =)
Does anyone have any suggestions or stories about solving staffing problems? Safe and effective staffing shouldn't be a sometimes thing. Correct me if I am rong but you alwas have the option of not accepting new admissions, you as an RN are responsable for evaluating your ability to give good care.
