This is IT. By hook or by crook, I am getting out of hospital work. I am SICKER than a dog right now. I didn't start feeling bad until about an hour and a half or so before my shift. At that time, I thought it was something I might get over, and really it was too late to call in anyway. We are OVERSTAFFED tonight, but my *&%#@$! supervisor will not let me go home! And WHY, you ask? Because we have people in OVERTIME that HAVE to go home first.So she sent home a person on my floor that was in overtime. Okay, fine and dandy. She said that she might be sending yet another person home; we are still "one nurse over". Okay.My charge nurse talked to her a little while ago. She offered to let me go to the ER. Uh, no, I don't need to go to the *ER*, I just need to go home and let this pass! What are they going to do for me in the ER, other than MAYBE give me some IV fluids???She THEN says... that if she does let someone go home, it will be another person on another floor... and then she'll FLOAT one of us TO THAT FLOOR!What kind of a PERSON does it take to be a house supervisor, anyway???Screw this, I'm outta here! I'm bound and determined to find something a lot better.
