I hate my job

My job is terrible. I got punched in the face a few weeks ago and got in trouble because I didn’t do the restraint documentation, I was deciding if my jaw was broken and if I needed to go to the ER. The hospital I work at is dirty, like they never clean it, there is gunk on the walls, we call house keeping because a patient peed on the floor and they never come. There is no house keeping closet so we can mop the floor ourselves. They got rid of all the CNA’s with a 5:1 ratio. I work nights, and it’s horrible. We will not get our raises, etc this year. I feel patients are not safe. I choose not to work Saturday because I seriously can’t do it. Everyone is on a hiring freeze because of COVID. I guess I need to be thankful I have a job. But one that interferes with everything.  In a hospital that doesn’t clean. Eww.

Even though restraint documentation will be a big deal no matter where you are, it sounds like you need a new job fast. Unfortunately because of COVID most places are on hiring freezes which may limit you. However if you truly feel your license is in jeopardy, I wouldn't hesitate.

The restraint documentation was done just not by me.

I hope you notified law enforcement of your assault... if not I would.  Hugs
