  1. so I was the charge nurse since we were short and I was the most senior nurse surprisingly at work. anyways one patient was complaining that the nurse was ignoring him. nothing was reported to me and now they will speaking with me in the coming days as part of an investigation. now that resident isn't really cognitive and the nurse said they weren't ignoring them but just that they were attending another patient. but anyways its stressing me and I don't even want to come to work thinking about losing my job and stuff. I did nothing wrong. I guess its serious since the union leader was there. however the accusation was not against me it was on a staff but I was in charge and I was not aware of this which sort of makes me look bad, but its like I have other things to do. Like antibiotic orders, post falls etc... those are my priority.
  2. As a new Nurse I have been dealing with it. when I was a student it was fine because I know I was a student and the instructors were there to help. but now I come really early and sit in my car in the parking lot thinking about the shift not knowing whats going to happen in the shift. I always sometimes think management is going to find something about me or make a case on me where they can blame me as I have seen that many times over the past year.
  3. during the pandemic in the Retirement home I worked mostly 2 different floors and I can do those floors with my eyes closed. Now, the full timers who ran away are coming back and obviously they don't want to lay me off so they are putting me to work on other floors. To me its fine, but its like I am getting anxious about it now. Like new Residents, how will they like me. And then also the personal support workers along with the nurses from the previous shifts. Getting to know different meds and Doctors and routines. I try not to dwell on it too much but I do.
  4. I work evenings 1500-2300. I notice the night shifts always blaming evening shifts like they tell me "you always report that everyone is fine on your shift on your report, but how come on my shift (night) she had a Fever? she did not have a fever on your shift"? and its like well I only worry about my shift, I don't go around worrying about anything else. or stuff like "how come she is starting to be restless and yell now (during shift exchange)? did you not give her something to calm down? why do we always have to do it"? they act like if a patient is crying out loud I have something to do with it. I swear as a Nurse I never blame anything on anyone. If something happens on my shift I take the accountability and not blame the shift before mine as they are not there anymore. I also think its a form of disrespect.
  5. thanks. It's just that I feel like I let them down. I don't usually call in sick unless I am really sick or its an emergency. Sometimes I call in just to get away from work and stuff.
  6. Feeling guilty. Then again I feel guilty about everything.
  7. well its the truth for me at least.
  8. Well in my case, we all have our own issues and whatnot. Especially in this field everyone has their own mental health issues which is important to address. But dealing with patients, staff, & visitors everyday, its like you are surrounded by weirdness, and then I'm becoming weird myself, and then its like it would not be a good idea for anyone (my family) to be with me as they would probably become weird too, so the only way to get back to normal, is to take a few days off and try to get rid of the weirdness around me.
  9. I have pretty good attendance at work which I am glad. I don't call in unless its an emergency. I have noticed staff call in sick due to personal reasons, or say they shovelled the snow and now their back hurts. They call in sick from work, and then we work short if there are no replacements. Thing is some staff say they just don't feel like coming to work, but they don't feel bad. Some say they are stressed which I understand, family complaints, managers on your tail etc... sometimes you are not sick and just need a day of healing mentally. Some staff do get burnt out. Some staff lets say had an argument one day and did not get over it so they need one day (sick) to recover but not actually sick. But, do you feel bad if they work short? Myself in my experience when nurses book off and I am alone on the floor, I am fine you are not hurting me, you are hurting the Residents. Even when PSW's book off as well. Have you ever called in when not really sick? I notice that its a habit for some staff.
  10. thanks for the answer. yeah I feel proud but its like that is the way people introduce you. sometimes I am not really eager to talk about being a nurse or what I do at work especially when I am stressed and want to do other things.
  11. While I do enjoy being a Nurse, its just the fact that everyone introduces me as a nurse. Like when we were still able to gather pre covid I would go to parties and my friends / family would introduce me to other people saying "heres my friend/nephew, hes a nurse". and its like man I'm not trying to start a conversation here by explaining what I do for a living. It's not like other people introduce their families like hey here my son, hes a mailman. I also love doing other things like swimming, playing drums in a band, but the title "Nurse" will always stick to me. Even when I try to talk to other people about other stuff non work related it always ends up by them asking "how did you work during the pandemic"? I may be complaining too much, but this is how I feel. I take the title Nurse and everything tied to it very seriously as it has been my lifes work in my very short nursing career, but I feel like it has taken over my life in some shape or way.
  12. I received my 2nd and final dose of the Pfizer vaccine. I felt very grateful to get it as I do work with vulnerable individuals. I want to protect myself, family, and patients. Thing is at work, it has staff divided. I took the vaccine based on facts, and to encourage other people to take it. Some staff have freaked out about it and think about it too much at work. I tell them they are not being forced to take it. However, there may be a rule where if there is a Covid outbreak that you might need to have it. they tell me "well you need to take in our opinion on it. you have no right to tell us what to put in our bodies". I told them, no one is forcing you to take it. However, the vaccine is proven to be 95% effective and that is facts, so in hindsight, everyone who has taken it, is 95% effective and you are just putting your own self at risk.

    ?????? Thanks. I just pick up shifts cause nowadays I feel grateful to be employed. Lots of people in other fields have lost their jobs.

    Is working overtime bad for your health?

    thanks for your answer. I agree there are a lot of factors to burn out, even your life at home can contribute to it. my mom told me to rest while my dad said it should be fine since I am young. I just don't want to do any inadvertent damage, but your opinion matters. You work a lot of hours. Sometimes you are just needed.
