Ironically, just last week we had no techs at all.. No secretary.. NOTHING. We do the same thing. We put our charts together, order IV pumps if needed... Just this past week I had only 5 patient but a patient that was a MESS! Screaming and just acting out bad and we had to ensure they had a sitter. We had 3 patient's on our floor that were 1 on 1's and they took all our staff to do so.. So no techs or secretary.. I miraculously got out by 0845.. We are extremely understaffed on nights.. I cried last week because a nurse yelled at me and said it was ridiculous that I wasn't giving report until 0730.. (ironically this same nurse is one the day shift tends to complain about.. and then had this other nurse.. yeah one that likes to eat the young.. And likes to point out my mistakes every time.. Literally.. Very demeaning towards me.. And that is something I absolutely CANNOT stand.. Yes, direction is admirable because I am new.. But to continually appear to me purposely poking at my mistakes is just not enabling me to learn.. It hurts my character really... I am unfortunately someone that is very gentle, very caring.. I can take constructive criticism just not the kind that is "sassy" in nature.. The day shift does not understand I feel like.. if a patient has pooped purposely on the floor, yes this happened to me.. This is my responsibility to clean up.. I have no tech to delegate it to.. If i am unable to get blood, I have to get another nurse for assistance who also has patient's.. Honestly, I know my time management is lacking.. I feel like I am improving already with taking my computer in the patient's room while assessing.. but staffing is problem.. If another floor needs a sitter at night, our staff gets pulled.. Its insane..
