They are getting training however, the problem is they aren't being trained well enough or long enough. Which, I have told the ADNS, tomorrow I approach it with the DNS. I would have no problem not writing them up, however when I am flat out being ignored, what do I do??
I have tried the encouragement, I was even working side by side with them last night as an aid. Charting didn't get done till the very wee hrs in the morning. I have told management repeatedly they need to train them longer. But my full time aid has 8 + months @ an out of state facility and at our facility for over 2 weeks. I am worried about my license. We were hit with a neglegence fine 2 weeks ago. Lastnight we were 3 aids on my hall, the 3 day aid being trained by another full time aid, however, management had no clue she was short shift, 2-8pm and left with no notice to me. The trainee informed me that no one had the middle run, and it wasn't her responsibility. This 3 day trainee also has experience as an ER tech, aid, Phlebotomist so I'm not dealing with completely new. I like the list with time frame thing though. Any other suggestions?
