Last nights shift started out pretty good. At 6:30 I was ahead of the game, all my residents being washed, changed ect aside from the 3 that like to be washed before they go to bed. These 3 are pretty independent so I knew Id have them done in no time. I had half my computer work done, which that early in the night was a miracle in itself. Then one of the CNAs on the other wing went home sick. It was a choice between me & 1 other girl going over to cover because of seniority. "Z" hadnt worked 2nd shift on that wing & I had so I said I would go over but 2 of he girls asked that Id stay. They told me later it was because even though Im still retraining, I had no problem doing what needed to be done & helping the other CNAs when they needed it. ("Z" hardly had anything done, including leaving 1 resident on a near empty O2 tank.) Well, that felt good! (its nice to be 'wanted', especially in a very 'cliquy' place like this). Ok so I go check on the residents "Z" had so I could see what was left to be done......Just about EVERYTHING!! 3 of her residents needed to be changed and it was obvious that they had been sitting in it awhile. That alone made me mad. Thats bedsores just waiting to happen. Practically nothing on the computer was complete. She came over at end of shift and asked how it went. I just looked at her grrrrrrrrrr. Thank God the other 2 girls jumped in to help me or I would have been there much later than the 45 min over shift that I already was. Right before I left, a resident rang and when I went in, she said she was wet. Ok no biggie, I changed her. Then I felt like my heart was gonna break. She says to me "You didnt get mad & yell at me" WHAT?????? She said 1 of the girls gets mad & yells when she wets! I told her that was why she wears the Attends, that accidents happen, its no big deal but that NO-ONE should be yelling at her for that. Heck, no-one should be yelling at her at all! She didnt want to tell me who & I told her that was ok but she had to tell the nurse about it. I also went right to the charge nurse & told her what was said. She was NOT happy! I hope they find out who it is because thats abuse and I wont ignore that. So, in your opinions, did I do the right thing? Would you have done anything different? Thanks for letting me vent. I know it doesnt seem like much, bad shifts happen. That last part just took the cake & I needed to b**ch & moan. Sorry for the long post.
