I just got hired into a LTC/REHAB/SNF and I HATE IT. I want a hospital job but no one wants new grads. SO I took this job, got basically no orientation at it, and get thrown out on a floor with 33 patients all by myself. No other nurses on to help (afternoon, evening) and have to pass at least 3 upwards of 15 meds to each one. How can anyone do this? It was a 4 hour shift but they wanted me to do 8 so I said no. I had less than 8 minutes per patient. That includes all charting, all med passing, crushing, feeding the slow ones, waking people up, taking vitals, doing blood sugars, drawing up insulin, EVERYTHING. How can anyone do this? It's so not safe! I was prepared to get like 10 patients leaving school but 33!? I don't know what to do. I have an interview at a hospital and orient for a PRN position soon at another SNF. I want to just quit this place. Their turnover is ridiculous and they're never properly staffed. I got no orientation and there's always meds that don't come from the pharmacy, not enough supplies, patients getting admitted without rx's or continuity. I wanna cry every day at work. I have nightmares about getting new admissions. What can I do? What should I do? I am worried my license is in danger working here because it's too much work for any one person to do and especially me, greener than grass! How do I quit? What do I say to the DON? I feel like the worst nurse in the world.
