Management is condescending, and does not provide what we need for our patients. When we advocate for our patients, managers tell us to stop complaining, to work faster, and be resourceful, as in folding open gauze squares to use in lieu of Kerlix. Equipment is archaic, sparse, and often broken, and our already inefficient software runs on Windows 7. There is no evidence-based practice, not even clinical pathways. We almost never have CNAs on the floor, meaning we have basically twice the work on our hands. The pharmacy closes at 1630 on weekends and holidays, and 1930 on weekdays, which means we have to process medication orders as if we were doctors and pharmacists; none of us are comfortable doing this, and I am tired of jeopardizing my license.
