THE HOSPITAL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES OR THEIR PATIENT'S APPARENTLY. THEY CONSTANTLY UNDERSTAFFED AND THEY DON'T CARE THEY JUST KEEP ADMITTING PEOPLE TO UNDER STAFFED UNITS. TELLING US TO SUCK IT UP. IT'S UNSAFE FOR THE EMPLOYEES AND THE PATIENT'S. AND IT'S NOT JUST AN EVERY NOW AND THEN THING, IT'S EVERYDAY. THEY CAN'T KEEP STAFF DUE TO THIS. I'VE WORKED THERE OVER 5 YEARS ON MY CURRENT UNIT AND HAVE SEEN OVER 100 RN'S COME AND LEAVE DUE THIS PROBLEM. EACH DAY MANAGEMENT ARE ADDING MORE AND MORE RESPONSIBILITIES TO STAFF, WHICH TAKES MORE TIME BUT THE TIME THE LITTLE STAFF CAN'T GET TO DUE TO TRYING TO CARE FOR THEIR PATIENT'S AS BEST AS THEY CAN. THEN MANAGEMENT THREATENS STAFF TO FIRE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE UNABLE TO DUE IT ALL. THEY RUSH STAFFING THROUGH ORIENTATION TO PUT THEM ON THE FLOOR, WHERE THEY ARE UNFAMILIAR, AND UNDER TRAINED APPROPRIATELY. SETTING THAT PERSON UP TO FAIL, SO THEY CAN WASTE TIME FINDING REPLACEMENTS THAT GO THROUGH THE SAME SITUATIONS. IF THEY ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO MAKE IT THROUGH THEY ARE OVER WORKED AND NOT COMPLETELY TRAINED TO BE THEIR, THAT'S WHEN PATIENT'S SAFETY COMES INTO A BIG PLAY. MANAGERS BLOW US OFF WHEN WE TRY TO TELL THEM, HOUSE MANAGERS DUE THE SAME. EXAMPLE, STAFFING COMES IN TO STEP DOWN UNIT (PCU) DAY-SHIFT IS ALLOWED 9 NURSES, 4 PCAS, 2 SECRETARIES, AND 1 MONITOR TECH, NIGHT-SHIFT IS ALLOWED ONLY 7 NURSES, 3 PCAS, 1 SECRETARY, AND 1 MONITOR TECH. DAY-SHIFT IS 90% STAFFED APPROPRIATELY, NIGHT-SHIFT ONLY 30% OF THE TIME ARE THEY APPROPRIATELY STAFFED. BUT HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OR MORE PATIENT'S THAN DAYS. THEN THEY ADMIT EVERYONE WITH EVEN JUST A HANG NAIL TO OUR MONITORED UNIT, THEN WHEN WE ARE FULL AND THE REAL PATIENT'S FOR THIS UNIT--CARDIAC, RESP, AND STROKE PATIENT'S COME IN WE EITHER HAVE TO MOVE PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE CORRECT PATIENT'S TO COME TO THE CORRECT UNIT, THEN IF WE ARE SHORT 1-2 NURSES AND PCAS 50% OF THE TIME THEY DON'T CARE THAT THEY ARE SENDING US MORE PATIENT'S THAN WE ARE ETHICALLY ABLE TO PROVIDE SAFE CARE TO. THIS IS DAILY/NIGHTLY. WE ARE A CARDIAC AND STROKE FLOOR, BUT GET EVERYTHING SENT TO US. DRUG OVERDOSES, ALTER MENTAL STATUS, DIZZINESS, ABD PAIN, HEADACHES, N/V/D, CHEST PAIN, CHF, AFIB, STROKE, SYNCOPE, PNEUMONIA, COPD, EMPHYSEMA, UTI, EVERYTHING...NO MATTER HOW MANY PATIENT'S WE HAVE. NURSES CAN HAVE 5 PATIENT'S A PIECE AND GET A STROKE PATIENT CALLED UP AND MAKE THEIR 6TH, INSULIN DRIPS, CONFUSED PATIENT'S THAT NEED ONE ON ONE CARE, MEDICALLY ILL PATIENT'S THAT NEED CONSTANT CARE HAS A NURSE THAT HAS 5 OTHER PATIENTS TO CARE FOR ALSO. THEN THEY COULD CARE LESS REGARDING BRINGING PATIENT'S UP OR CALLING REPORT AT SHIFT CHANGE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO GET TO THAT REPORT WITHIN 5 MIN THEY FAX REPORT AND BRING PATIENT'S UP. BIG STUDY SHOWED MOST PATIENT'S FALL, INJURIES, AND DEATHS ARE INCREASED AT SHIFT CHANGES. BUT DO THEY CARE NO FOR EXAMPLE, THE OTHER DAY WE CAME ON SHIFT...AS SOON AS WE HIT THE FLOOR WE DO BEDSIDE REPORT WITH THE OFF GOING STAFF. SO THAT CAN TAKE A LOT OF TIME. THAT TIME THAT OTHER PATIENT'S CARE AND NEEDS ARE NOT BEING CARED FOR, OR TRANSPORT PUTS PATIENT'S IN ROOMS THAT AREN'T SUPPOSE TO BE IN THAT ROOM, OR ADMITS COME UP AND THE STAFF DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THEY ARE THERE. THAT HAPPENED JUST LAST WEEK. IT'S WAS AN HOUR BEFORE WE EVEN KNEW. THANK GOODNESS NOTHING HAPPENED, PATIENT'S WERE ALERT AND ORIENTED AND NOT A FALLS RISK. BUT THE ONE THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE ON ANOTHER UNIT WAS SICK, HE NEEDED BLOOD, FAMILY WAS MAD WHEN WE TOLD THEN WE HAD TO TAKE HIM TO HIS CORRECT ROOM AND REFUSED, WANTING US TO START ON HIS TREATMENT RIGHT AWAY, AFTER A LENGTHY EXPLANATION THAT WE HAD NO ORDERS, AND HAD NO ORDER FOR HIM TO BE ON OUR UNIT, THEY TOOK CHARGE NURSES ANOTHER HOUR OF THEIR TIME TO GET THIS STRAIGHTENED OUT...PUTTING THEIR PATIENT'S ALONE EVEN LONGER. THEN WHEN OUR FLOOR'S STAFF IS THERE AND WE THINK YEA FULLY STAFFED THEY PULL OUR STAFF TO STAFF ANOTHER FLOOR WHERE THEIR STAFFING HAD CALLING IN AND MAKES US SHORT BUT STILL SEND PATIENT AFTER PATIENT TO US. NOT SAFE AT ALL! THEN WHEN SOMETHING UNFORTUNATELY DOES HAPPEN, LIKE A PATIENT FALL, STAFF GET IN TROUBLE BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T BE IN 3 PLACES AT ONCE. I CAN GO ON AND ON, WITH SIMILAR STORIES, THAT COULD MAKE A NOVEL. THE REASON THEY CAN NOT KEEP STAFF IS THIS REASON, BUT THEY DON'T CARE. THEY WON'T MANDATE PATIENT/NURSE RATIO, THEY DON'T CARE TO MANDATE NO ADMISSIONS /REPORTS TO BE CALLED AT SHIFT CHANGE, ETC. I'M DONE WITH THEM, I'VE TRIED TO HELP ALL THE STAFF AND PATIENT'S BY HAVING MEETINGS WITH MANAGEMENT, THEY DON'T CARE, THEY SAY THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO. WELL THERE'S SOMETHING WE ALL CAN DO BUT MANAGEMENT WON'T ALLOW IT, SO WE LEAVE! I'VE HAD ENOUGH AND THIS JOB HAS ALMOST RUINED ME, I NO LONGER LOOK FORWARD TO DOING MY JOB BECAUSE OF THE EMPLOYERS UNWILLINGNESS TO MAKE THE PROPER THINGS TO CARE FOR THEIR STAFF AND PATIENTS. JOINT COMMISSION, OR WHO EVER IS SUPPOSE TO MAKE SURE THE HOSPITALS ARE RUNNING SAFELY AND UPHOLDING THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES NEEDS TO PUT IN A FEW SPIES ON DAY AND NIGHT SHIFTS IN ALL DEPARTMENTS AND DIFFERENT POSITIONS. THEN THEY WOULD SEE HOW IT IS REALLY RAN, INSTEAD OF THE MAKE UP SHIT THEY SEE WHEN THE HOSPITAL KNOWS THEY ARE COMING.
