Things at work were tense.
The faces on the nurses were not happy, and this was pre-meeting:
Then the meeting happened.
My approval is seen below:
They have cut our hours.
My hours were left alone.
My shift is 5:00 AM to 1:30 PM starting 2/2/09.
The next shift is 2:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
The NOC shift is 10:30 PM to 4:00 AM.
One of my co-workers, the upset male seen above, will lose his insurance. He is only scheduled for 24 hours a week, and at my job you need 28 hours a week to keep your insurance.
After the meeting today I called him and offered him 4 hours a week of mine. I cannot just sit by and let my co-worker and friend lose his benefits. Especially because he has a wife and two small children. I would want someone to do that for me.
In addition to cutting our hours, the man in charge is changing our med system to a system where the pharmacist has pre-pulled all of our meds and placed them in a med-redi-on-time container.
We tried this for a month at our facility already and it was a nightmare.
The pharmacy was rude and the errors were many.
I don't know why he is changing something that is not broken.
I NEED A NEW JOB!!!!!!!
Anyway, all other things are going okay.
I really do love what I do. I really don't understand why a man who is my boss, and who has never been a nurse, refuses to listen to his employees.
Oh the things I could say about him, but I won't because I am a lady!
Love you guys!
