UNCLE! and show me the money
It used to be that once a year the hospital had a mandatory education day in which this stuff was done. Apparently this is out the window. Now its being divided up throughout the year like this. This in addition to the constantly changing policies, procedures, new drugs, new equipment, etc. etc. etc. When does it end? My brain isn't big enough to store all this shit.
In other news, our hospital is screwed right now. Census is up. Way up. Of course they don't have enough nurses (surprise, surprise). There has been pretty much a hiring freeze up until the last few months, we are down lots and lots of nurses in the hospital. So we are back to the we will give you anything to work an extra shift era. Any extra shift brings a bonus. If this keeps up, I can see a return of the thousands of dollars bonuses to work to take a job at so and so hospital. I hope this helps the thousands of nursing graduate nurses who haven't been able to find a job.
Is this going on at your hospital?
