    Advice please I’m torn.

    Does someone want to think of the child here? You can’t leave them like this, knowing there meds are being altered and are affected him. He needs help. And it’s your profession responsibility to help him Plus it something that will def fall back on yourself and most probably land you in a lot of trouble. Reporting this shouldn’t be the issue.

    I’m burnt out

    My leave coming up is quite long, 10 weeks. So would be impossible to get a job anywhere and be able to keep my leave. I also I don’t have a particular floor I want to stay on permanently. There are definitely some I prefer, but none where I feel like yes! This is my speciality. I want to explore a few more floors while I’m still on float pool. As for not feeling appreciated, that comes from staff. Normally I actually like my pts. I feel like I just get taken advantage of. Ie get the worst load, last to get any sort of breaks ect. Yet its staff I feel bad for. I’m at a small hospital, where sometimes you really are all they have. Last week I did a shift with 3 other RNs, normally there’s 8 on. The next shift had even less staff on. They literally had no one left to call. When they say they are desperate, they really do mean it. i know they need to hire more staff, everyone does, but doesn’t matter how many times they are this short staff nothing seems to change.

    Code Blue

    We don’t use braclets or anything like that. First I’ve heard of it. But any unstable pt, every nurse is aware of and if they DNR or not. We just have emergency bells. Press it and in a matter of seconds you will have 20 staff members. So for me, that’s all I would do if I was unsure.

    How do you cope?

    There pain, grief, loss, poor outcome is there’s. Not mine. I’m there to support them and help where possible. I might not be able to change things, but sometimes just talking is enough to help them. Which is very rewarding, seeing how you’ve made a difference.

    I’m burnt out

    So I’ve been an RN for nearly a year and a half and Im burnt out. I work on the float pool, working on different floors every day. Sometimes multiple floors a day. I do ten 8 hour shifts a fortnight. I’m sick of being an ‘outsider’ every where I go. I’m sick of not being appreciated. im sick of being so busy that I never get a lunch break im sick of doing short changes (ie finishing at 2330 and being back at 0700) I’m sick of being called in everyday, making me feel so bad that I can’t say no im sick of having to work 7-8-9 days in a row and only having one day off before starting back I feel like all my life is going to work, coming home and sleeping and then back to work. On my day off (rarely have more than 1 off in a row) I either do house work and meal prep, or sleep for 15 hours. I moved here for my job, and haven’t really made any friends. I’m single as well. So spend most my time on my own and have no one I can talk to about my frustration or when I’ve had a sh*ty day. I have a leave in a couple of months, but don’t think I can make it till then. I’m exhausted.
