In the 101 bed-hospital were I work, we have more supervisor than staff nurses. I was wandering if you guys were supervisors of your floor/or DON's etc, what would you do??
I personally will always try to keep an adequate staff for our census. Last friday we had only 4 nurses for 30 patients!! and 2 were Lpn's so I had to cover one. I fought with my supervisor because I said this is not fair. I wanted to see the list of the people that she called during the night but they don't let you see it, they suck.
SO, if I was a supervisor my priority will be to keep enough staff and If I couldn't find it I will tell my staff and let them know how sorry I am, I don't know why some supervisors can be so mean.
anyways, that's me.
