I work at a critical access hospital. We average about 15-25 patients a day some clinic type and some critical. We currently staff 1 RN and 1 LVN at night and have a tech off and on. Admin wants a 10% cut accross the board of all departments. There is talk of cutting the LVN to a 11am to 11pm shift. Our Docs work 24hr shifts and are sometimes hard to find at night, we do not have a RT department, some nights I am the only RN in the building, EMS has been encouraged to bring all pts to our facility no matter the accuity by our Cath lab director (Cath lab is scheduled diagnostic only, non-emergent). we have no security or even locking doors.
I am seriously considering looking for a new job. Am I over reacting?
