OK...I was scheduled to work on the floor as a CNA last Thursday-Monday. I went to work Thursday and called in sick the rest of the days because I had strep throat. I cultured positive for strep, staph, and yeast. I got two antibiotics, an antifungal, and an antiviral. I was sick...not just calling in because I didn't want to work, not just calling in for the fun of it, not calling in because I am independently wealthy and am only working because I am bored.
So...tonight I was on my way to work (scheduled as a CNA again)...30 miles into my 35 mile drive, when my DON called my cell phone and told me they got an AGENCY CNA to work tonight, so I needed to stay home. The other nurse has more senority than I do, so she got to work.
I am not a very happy camper right now. Tomorrow, I am intensifying my job search. There is an LTC 35 miles in the other direction...and they pay mileage...and they have benefits...and they never have less than 3 nursing personel in the building.
Ooops...STAY home! Why can't we edit subject lines too?
