and some people think noc shift is a walk in the park. those of us who work it know better.
:roll You best bet your bottom dollar we know better... I hear all the time, "nighters can do it, they have nothing better to do, everyone's sleeping."
I WISH.... The doc decided to dc 1/2 of meds (sleeping aids, anxiety aids, mood behavior aids) on our floor right before Christmas.
Was a place from your worst nightmare.... With 38 residents, 2 aides and 1 lpn, the place was losing staff right and left. Short staffed, and of course, we have no activities, hair appts, outside appts, or extra help on 11-7. Plus the awful awful stomache flu went around also at this time. Both ends.....
Talk about staff tears and holding on to each other. Then we get a $15 gift card
from management. WOW that sure helped make out holdays merrier.
The straw was, management had to help out on Christmas and New Years Eve with the floor.... Pay backs are hell... But Justice was served...LOL
