Do you'll feel like janitors sometimes? Don't get me wrong, cleaning rooms, transporting patients isn't beyond me.
But sometimes it just feels like you have to hurry and get them on the table, get them off, clean the room and then do it all over again.
We typically do about 40some cases/day. we just went down to 1 assistant. there duties now mainly include ordering supplies, stocking rooms, assisting techs. don't really assist us nurses.
we do have housekeeping emptying trash.
every year it seems to get worse and worse, with our caseload etc
and I'm sick of management -
and sick of the press ganey scores.
but I love my coworkers-all except for 1!!! and I love my patients
Does anyone else feel like they are being worked to death?
