Increase staffing in all areas. Burnout is a serious problem and as a result there are a profound number of staffing turn overs. I believe it is a dangerous situation to assign 1 nurse for 6 patients. I rarely get what its considered a 'lunch break and often find myself in front of the computer charting during my so called break. I am often reprimanded by my charge nurse for I filing a ' no lunch ' variance form. It is against the law for not offering a break for the number of hours worked. I have considered writing Midas reports on the nights I have 6 acute patients. It is not fair to our customers to be neglected in any manner. I am feeling the effects of burnout and I am considering trensfering to a less dangerous situation. Administration needs to look at this hospital wide problem and preventing the possibility of law suits by our clients.
Treat your employees better. When your employees feel appreciated, your customers (aka patients) will be more satisfied and happy. Learn the basics of management.

Resign... you and the current management have killed morale, Turn over is constant, the staff you've hired to replace people have no experience, it has hurt the hospitals reputation, along with the community it serves.
