Ok I couldn't come up with a title that described what I'm feeling.
I left a large (over 7200 deliveries a year) to take a job in a small hospital and I'm finding myself shaking my head inside as I'm being oriented.
I'm on day 3. I went into my first csection yesterday and was shocked at some of the practices...like looking at the clock on the wall for birth time to not keeping a white board with the count listed to taking the newborn Out of the OR to the.."nursery?" before moms section was done. Oh yeah they only keep the newborn with mom for a bit..then take them away to the nursery. And they don't have the RN's doing vaginal checks as they assess their pts in labor..the residents do ALL the checks.
I could go on and on..but I wondered if anyone else ever felt this way after changing facilities..and will it go away? I am constantly holding back from saying.."well we did it This way at ..." because thats so annoying lol.
But I feel like things are done so strangely..and I am not feeling a bond with the job yet.
Anyone else ever feel like this when they shifted jobs??
See when you apply for a job you have no idea how things are done..you just get the nice little tour and thats that. Unless you have a friend working somewhere you really don't know how things are done. And most of the nurses Im working with, have been there for 25-35 yrs..so maybe they don't even Know its messed up lol.
