Can't say i can add much to the obstacle list, everything's covered! I work nights at a prison, so i'm sure things are done a bit differently. My biggest complaint is short staffing. Another complaint is the officers. I work nights, my job consists of labs, passing a few meds (at 12am and 4 am), checking out chest pain and SOB complaints (which are mostly just to get to see a nurse, rarely are the ligit complaints), filiing, chart reviews, triaging sick call request for day and evening shifts, and investigating and answering complaint forms.
We are usually covered up in paper work and right in the middle of it the officers come to us complaining of heartburn, headaches, sinus infections, etc. We are to give them OTC meds as needed. Every night it's the same thing, 4 or 5 officers (usually the same ones) complaining and wanting something for their complaints. They can see we are busy, but yet we are expected to stop what we're doing and care for them. Even when we go to lunch, they sit with us at the table telling us what's their latest illness, and requesting something. Our breaks are different, and sometimes we've had to leave our break go to the infirmary and get what they need, then go back to lunch. We get so tired of caring for the officers. Actually they are more demanding than the inmates!!
