Hey Ned, I appreciate you chiming in. You mentioned some good points. I agree that getting warmed up make take some time, but I do have safety concerns. I feel the workload is just impossible. Most nurses leaving at 830 or 9 after their shifts. I left at 0930 today!
It's kind of hard to refuse since who else is going to take the patients? I know the assignment isn't just because I'm a traveler because everyone's assignment has been heavy. Nurses are constantly complaining about the acuity, lack of assistance, and safety issues. We're told there is no extra staff to help and we just have to do our best. Based on what I'm seeing, I'm concerned for these patients. They deserve better. 😞
