I was 6 mos pregnant when I started, for which I disclosed during my interviewer. I'd some pretty severe complications(seizures). One day I experienced a particularly severe tonic-clonic seizure for which I was admitted to the local hospital, I was absent two shifts for the latter. Admittedly, my focus with this first and only child, did begin to affect my work. the patient/nurse ratio was appalling. I was assigned to a unit with 56 patients, two unlicensed personnel and myself. the reason this was considered "okay" was the expectation the night shift supervisor was to assist the nurse. This NEVER happened. I was termed due to my loss of focus due to the complications of pregnancy.
patients requiring wound vaccuums infusion medictions was less than other facilities
low pay, dangerous nurse/patient ratio, poor management, cut throat work environment
