    I need some advice

    No I'm not hiding out in patient rooms there is a lot of work for me to do when I am the only cna on am and pm shift and it's hard when I have four or five call lights going off all at once and I'm by myself also I don't get help I'm always shown how to do a two person transfer all by myself and I'm have been shown how to move residents up in bed by myself so if it seems like I'm hiding out in patient rooms then it's not intentional it's because I don't have help

    I need some advice

    So I am a new cna and I have been working in 40 bed snf for a couple of months this is my first job as a cna. Well we are short staffed lately I have been working alone with two other LVNs with 20 residents all to myself. Today I got a write up stating my performance is poor and that I don't get every thing done I'm too slow I hide out in residents rooms and I was compared to other cnas and nurses who have been working for years. My DON said she is disappointed in my performance and that I'm not as good as the others who have years of experience. I'm not sure how to do better when I feel like I am drowning and I get into trouble when I ask for help. Nobody trains me they just complain without teaching. My question is how do I handle patient load and still be on time to avoid losing my job? on top of that they always want me to work double shift because a lot of other cnas quit. My Don asked me to work double shifts all this month but doesn't want to hire and I have been resisting. I have volunteered to work only one double.
