Wondering what type of workload some of you gals/guys have. My wife feels abused and from the outside looking in, my perspective, it sure seems like she is involved in alot at times.
She is paid well over 73k/yr Mon-Friday......or that's what they say...I'll explain. Her normal duties are normal I'm assuming here:
..Disability, Workmen's Comp, Physicals, bloodwork, flu shots, insulin and random shots people need given etc, case manage, wellness program, emergency response team training, cpr training, monthly tracking of owned systems etc. the plant is about 500 people.
This is where it seems excessive Safety results owner, safety tracking for the site, leadership meetings, safe practices, MCA follow up, root cause analysis for all safety violations, etc etc.
So, what was a 40-45hr week job (medical) is now a 55-60hr week job (Safety) and now she is doing HR work too!! This doesn't factor in the calls at night or weekends where people just want to talk about their problems before she refers them to a company paid EAP program. She just got back from John Hopkins for a class and after talking to some of the OHN's there said "Either I'm way overworked or way underpaid!"
Just wondering what some of you guys experiences are? In the end even though she is stressed out she is learning a ton. When she goes back to the hospital (1 day) month to hang with her old friends it's like a big break. She always says working the floor is so easy compared to work all I have to do is worry about my 6-8 patients and go home.........nothing to it.
Above all of this she is enrolling in NP school come spring.
