    These things are agonizingly painful to all involved. Make a news letter and sent it e-mail. All finished
    Been there, done that, received the e-mails and it didn't work so well. While we were free to e-mail our comments or concerns, most of us felt like our concerns weren't being addressed as well. Now, we are back to the monthly "live" meetings.

    Staff meetings are part of your job, but they should be held during your regular working hours. If the hospital wants you to attend then it should add necessary staff to allow everyone to attend.

    Where I work we have monthly staff meetings too, that we are expected to attend. With us working 10:45 p.m. to 7:15 a.m., I am in no mood to show up at 2:00 p.m. for a meeting. Why can't they understand that is like the middle of the night to us. We do the e-mails too but still have the meetings. That is my biggest gripe about working nights!

    I've never seen a meeting for day shifters held at 8pm after a 12 hour shift. An 8am meeting is just as rude to night shifters as that would be.
    This is when the third shifters decided on for themselves....

    Well spoke to some of my co-workers today and I didn't miss much. Same crap, different day. Restraints (we are suppose to let the person fall and break a hip), documentation (the same stuff in 5 different places), chasing doctors for orders...(yeah, right. These people went to school for at LEAST 12 years, they should know what orders to write..)..glad I didn't waste my time. I will just read the minutes.....
