The day I was assigned to clean all the jugs, and fill all the machines, I had an entire side of the unit to myself, alone. No techs no help.
And remember- I've only been doing this work for 3 and a half months.
Granted, I had only from 2-7 pts in the chairs at a time. but, I was trapped on the floor. I ran out of gloves and had no way to get more. Same w/ bicarb. I can't leave the pts to do it. I was reduced to begging the reuse tech and unit sec'y to get supplies for me as they passed by on their way to lunch.
I work three days a week, and usually get a break only one day out of three, and only if I loudly insist that I get it.
I have been totally stressed out and depressed because of the situation.
