My sister as well as my sister-in-law are nurses, but I haven't heard them complain about the workload. The pay isn't very high here either though...

Everyday it is like being in hell. Never enough people to do anything.

Now we have been hit with enough paperwork to sink the titanic, each admission takes around 1hour and a half to complete. Sometimes we don't have auxilliarys to help we have to do everything. Up to 10 patients, most very heavy care. Mostly its the paperwork that gets you down and the people who continually com round to see if it has been done right. These people who do this are well qualified nurses and earn twice as much as we do on the front line. We are a male and female ward.

All they are bothered about it every box has been signed or whatever. Could they not do a better job?

Talking about staffing levels, we are a 26 bed ward. Hopefully four trained a shift. Not always.

Ignore the rant guys, its my life, I have to get on with it. It started with talking to fellow nurses on facebook. Going to try and take things further with the union, if they dare. I am up for it. I could get into trouble, big trouble talking to you on a forum so lets forget it eh?

As I say, my problem, Another day tomorrow. xxxxhug.gif
