And they do, I was reminded of this when a colleague recently stated his wife was working extra bemoaning the fact that "too many travelers who don't know what they are doing', are at her job. 'Really, I replied, and your wife would have it nailed after a few hours orientation?'Have worked as a traveler 2008-2016, much do my dismay having experienced a bit of NETY; not bad. Now, as a Traveler I truly discovered the meaning of being 'eaten for lunch', so to speak, as has every traveler whom I have made acquaintance. To elucidate: the nasty habit of 'staffing by traveler' rather than staffing by acuities. 4 patients, all highest acuity, if all regular staff oncoming shift they would be divided by acuity. If a traveler is among oncoming shift she gets all 4 of my all highest acuity. I am fine with the issues of more minor degree which bear a close resemblance to Jr. High in clique-ish-ness, e.g. unbeknownst to many travelers actually do have names (mom did not slap 'traveler' on our birth certificate. My personal favorite? Oh, that's just the traveler.) But, the acuity issue is so inherently unsafe I no longer do travel in acute care hospitals. It is just not safe. If I wish to delve back into traveling I'll do corrections, I'll do occupational et al. Not acute care solely for the safe practice aspect. Do tell, is this just an opportunity 'regular' staff advantages itself of as they feel over-worked and under-appreciated thus seize upon opportunity to dump on 'the Traveler'? As the young ones say, not cool.
