Should I quit?

  1. New grad LPNand just started at a LTC Facility. I think there are many red flags here.


    I asked my supervisor to show me how to do an enema and she said to ask an aid or to falsely document that I did OR that the patient refused. That seemed like a huge red flag to me. Also during my training the person training me left hours before the shift leaving me alone on the unit as nurse in charge. She then lied to the supervisor saying she gave night insulin to some patients. But never documented or told me she did so that was a huge confusion. The nurses here said it was a good place to work since they don't scrutinize here but I feel like that leaves room for mistakes. I'm not comfortable with not giving a patient medication and saying I did. In addition I was told I would be offered a full time schedule but they put me down as per Diem. Idk if I'm exaggerating here but I feel like my license is at jeopardy at this place. Do you agree?

    I'm sorry about your situation. Of course you should quit. But I am waaaay more worried about the patients at that facility.

    Their lives are at stake.

    It might take some extra effort and work on your part but please contact the New York State, Department of Health, complaints about nursing home care. You can Google it.

    Do I give a two week notice or do I just quit and no longer show up?
    Yes I'll look into that.

    Do not just NOT show up for work.

    Write a letter saying you are resigning as of a specific date. Even if it's for 24 hours from when you give it to her. Keep a copy for yourself.

    Or give two weeks notice and hopefully nothing horrible happens in the facility before you leave.
