SHOOT THE BEAN COUNTERS---NOW!
Now I know why people go postal at work and kill their bosses.
I DREAD going to work. I can't believe I'm saying this. Me, the poster child for "I LOVE MY PROFESSION". IT SUCKS!!!!
I have made the worst professional decision of my life when I transferred to Papi's hospital.
I am BORED, UNCHALLENGED, STRESSED! I don't know day-to-day, hour-to-hour, where I'll be working. It's not just floating you for a shift. It's "drop what you're doing NOW and go help out in X Dept". Or it's "You're working tomorrow in the ER (9am), then you're not working tomorrow in the ER (12pm), then you're working half a shift in ICU (3pm), only to come in the next day and nobody knows where you're supposed to be" type of day, 5 days a week, week in and week out.
Or even worse: You're begging, borrowing, outsmarting, outmaneuvering, cheating, lying or murdering your co-workers to get enough hours to make 36 hours a week. Every day this goes on, but God FORBID you are one nanosecond over 40 hours (which can happen if you're on call and have a lengthy case) prepare for your head on a pole and possible termination.
These administrators are running this hospital into the ground! And let's not mention what they are doing to the staff's mental health! I've gotten so hostile to them that I'm actually avoiding them so not to explode with the snarky remarks.
I can't afford to be fired. The other two hospitals are at least 50 miles in the opposite direction. I have to work, or get the hell out of paradise.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!! WONDERFUL NON-PROFIT BIGSHOT HEALTH SYSTEM!!!! BUY US ALREADY AND PUT US OUT OF OUR MISERY!!
ok i feel better now.............
