I no longer work in a hospital, I "retired" and work two long days a week in long term care. I find that some of the nurses and CNTs are often careless about the masks - not putting them on before they enter the building, they leave them off until they officially get their assignment and start down the hall to make rounds or pass trays, sit close to me or someone else at the tiny desk at the nurse's station, all eat together (which I do not) in the break room only a couple of feet apart, or, as one RN working in medical records does, wears her mask consistently around her throat literally every time she comes on our unit. I work day shift but recently a couple of night shift techs came on the unit and sat at the desk while I charted after my shift, not wearing masks at all. When I asked them to please put them on, (and I assure you, I do it in a kind manner, being careful not to sound impervious or holier than thou or angry, ) one put hers on, the other said,, rather sarcastically....without looking at me, continuing to look at her I-phone,"uh huh....uh-huh.." she finally put her mask on about 20 minutes later...this makes me angry and worried and I honestly don't know how to handle it other than to constantly keep reminding them to please put their masks on. It would only take one positive person to get it started. I am open to suggestions and would appreciate them very much. I am thinking of asking our DON to talk to everyone but management doesn't come in to speak in person to night shift and rarely communicates with us at all unless you find a half crumpled piece of paper taped to the desk at the nurse's station (seriously) with new instructions for something or other on it. I work day shift but one of the night nurses and I are frequently amazed at how we are not made aware of new policies or changes in policies. There is no computer system where I work that can be accessed by staff, just by management; we still chart entirely by hand, too ( I know that is hard to believe in 2020, but it is true). I sometimes think that leaving altogether is my only option but I am quite fond of some of my residents and co-workers, too, and if I go somewhere else in longterm care, I hear it will be much the same in many ways, though I tend to think that surely there are places that take Covid-19 seriously and expect their employees to do the same. Thanks for reading. Would appreciate any and all advice you might have.
