Hi everyone. I need advice on those people working on acute dialysis. I have been working on chronic dialysis for 4 years now. I have rare medical condition where I am needing surgery every other year and had hx of craniotomies in the past. Lately, I ve been really getting sick and tired of working in the dialysis clinic. The turnover of staff is unbelievable. We always work short staffed, pt being put on late and on top of that you have to be updated with your monthly paperworks and more stuff added to RN responsibilities. Sometimes I am the only nurse on the floor and still have my own patient assignment to put on , plus do patients assessment and meds. I work in Fresenius. We just recently hired 3 new nurses but seems like they will not gonna stay with the kind of workplace we have. The last 2 RN staff we hired only stayed for 6 months and left for better job. The nurse manager seems not to care with the staffing issues, some coworkers just do whatever they want and can get away with it. I am considering transferring to acute dialysis. My question is how is acute dialysis compare to chronic dialysis. Which is more physically demanding and less stressful? Im thinking that acute at least you dont have to deal with monthly paperworks, burntout coworkers, unsupportive manager. Please enlighten me with the pros and cons of acute dialysis. I really need to find another job that is less stressful and less physically demanding. Thank you.
