Hard to want to go to work, although I love my job, the management lacks.
Pros: i have a job, and friends.
Cons: rarely get breaks, 30 min lunch, no freebies or help.
I usually go to work at 0400 to start the charts, etc, but am not allowed .to clock in till 0455. I do this on my own because it makes the workday easier for the rest of the staff to have this done ahead of time. Ive learned that people, as adults, are just as cruel as children. Our management will do anything to take credit for the day running smoothly, even if it is someone else making it happen. She spends more time at her computer, and smoking, and talking about people, than doing her job. She has no skills at management, is tactless, will call people out for problems in front of their cooworkers. She has also been known to not be truthful when problems arise. She is out the door at 1330, no matter what, she cannot be reached in an emergency, and if you do she has usually had to much to drink. I could go on, but it is unbelievable what she does to people, she is cruel. Most of my cooworkers are wonderful people, they are just afraid of her because she has been here so long. They have gotten to the point that they won't do anything extra, unless they are told for fear of her retaliating. The hardest part of my job is trying to act nice to her, and covering my back, which is why I am still here, cause I know how to document everything. I love my patients, I love being a nurse, I love taking care of people, and want to do it for a long time. I used to be so happy here, until she came into this position, now I spend more time making sure Im covering my back than taking care of my patients, whom I love.
