Healthcare Professional Confessions

Anything and everything you need to get off of your chest.

How many ppl have 2 part-time jobs vs one full-time? Does anyone get insurance working PT? What mix of hours do you work? Looking for a healthy balance w/o taking a hit on income. Am getting burned out with FT monotony and coworker drama. Wondering if my theory that working several Per diem or part-time jobs is less of a nuisance...?

Let’s talk about the social media posts of women complaining about how they want to “touch “ people they want to “hug” people they miss “people “ My response to that is : guess what whiny lady . Try saying that to those families who have lost loved ones and couldn’t even be with them at the time of their deaths ! Don’t you think they were saying the same ???

During union negotiations last year, we asked for a small number of bedside RNs to be in committee on workplace violence (after an RN was actually beaten up by pt. & hospitalized) although almost no cost to administration- they declined so no voice from those ACTUALLY experiencing. Now same “leaders” all in masks getting their pics taken for PR thanking us etc. hassled us on every tiny contract point - now “we’re all in this together?

Tonight had a fellow healthcare professional refuse to help because not my patient. I cannot stand that attitude and it’s everything wrong with the healthcare system. I just want to scream
