homecare in mn

  1. I am a homecare nurse who does extended visits with pediatric clients. My primary client is a wonderful child...great to work with...good environment overall, etc. The problem is our serious lack of staffing. The agency insists they are unable to fill our staffing needs, which is a complete 180 turn from when we signed on with them. Are all agencies in MN like this? She's 24/7 care, very complex, but fun.

    My body finally gave out on me a few days ago. I worked 54 hours in 3.5 days, at hour 54 I got dizzy and shaky and weak...and have continued to be so for the past 2 days. I've been sleeping as much as possible these past few days, but now the family is on burn out mode...I can't help them in my current state, but I don't know where to go from here.

    I'm guessing we can't offer referrals or anything on here, but some advice would be nice. You can PM if you'd like...Thanks!
