I"m 3 weeks into my new job at LTC. already been written up on my second week for forgetting to inital treatment book for 2 days that i was on orientation. I have been unemployed for over 8 months before getting this job that I HATE!!!!!! i work 7-3, with every weekends off, the only good thing about this job, but i can not stand the drama, the attitudes from everyone from the CNA's down to activities ppl to kitchen to housekeeping, family members not to mention falls, and new admissions or return resdients from hospital stays!! i have to deal with so much BS during my shift that it is unbelievable!! i am so under paid for one, and then the phone is another issue, have to carry a cordless phone with me on my cart that never stops ringing!! my DON interrupts me during 9am med pass for 29 residents to ask ridiculous questions like why a residents bed was moved, have i called to arrange transportation for certain resident...the list goes on and on!! i cant quit because i am a single mother with a mortgage! i just am in tears all day long...i hate that ppl dont talk to me, i am still trying to learn what is expected of me during the shift..i just feel lost most of the time..sometimes i dont leave until 6pm, i arrive every morning by 6am to start CNA assisgnment sheets before they arrive, I dont know what to do...i am so unhappy..i know LTC isnt for me..i luv the residents but everything else is not for me!!! will i ever find a nursing job that i will like?? i will try to stay here 6months to a yr if possible so that my resume wld look good, but boy its gonna be a long horrible year!!!!
