Okay, maybe this is just a little thing, but I just need to vent, and then I'll feel better.
Okay, due to child labor laws, I am not allowed to be at work past 10 PM. The nurses are all on top of that, and no matter what, I have to leave as soon as the clock strikes 10. I have a designated time to do my charting, 9:30. I hate this as it is. My hall partners are supposed to answer my call lights for me. Dude, they are SO strict about this. Anyway, I was so busy answering this one CNA's call lights for her, that I got behind on my charting. I am all for helping people, but what that CNA did to me, I'll be sure not to waist my time doing the extra things for her.
I was doing my charting and one of my lights were going off. It's 5 minutes to 10 and I am kind of ignoring this light because I need to get my charting done. She then snapped at me about that being my call light and I was just "sitting there" looking at it. I felt bad enough not answering it. I was so behind on my charting and charting is MANDATORY where I work. I told her, "I'm sorry, I have to leave in 5 minutes, and I need to get this done." She replied with. "No, you are not leaving! That light is going off, it is yours, and you will answer it!"
I just said, "I guess so, but I know what this light is going to be about, and I will be in there for atleast 15 minutes." She shruged and glared at me.
I did answer that light, and sure enough I was very late, and my charting was left undone.
Oh, anf get this. After I was in there for about 15 minutes, she came into the room and was watching me. Right, like I would pretend to answer the light, and stand there 15 minutes.
I dread tomorrow, because I will come into work, and have to face the music about not having my charting done, and possibly for staying so long after my legal time limit all because of some one who would not answer one stupid little light for me when she was just sitting on her butt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And get this, she's a new CNA, newer than me!
