You know you’re too flippin’ busy when you don’t have time to breath!
I know I said I wouldn’t do this – – but I have 17 days left! It can’t come any sooner for me, trust me! They decided, at work, that I would cover for one of the nurses who has gone on vacation for two weeks – – which doubles my patient case load. Now, why they wouldn’t split her caseload with three or four of us case managers, I have no idea. But they didn’t. Normally, I have 4-6 patients, on average, to see in a day. This week my days are filled with 10-12 visits each day. (with travel time between patients – – these could be long days)
I told them I’d do the best I could within my 8 hours each day. My boss’s response was “They all need to be seen, so you need to put in as many hours as you need to”. Riiiiight. I’m a salaried employee – – so you’re not going to be seeing me putting in 12-16 hour days anytime soon – – not unless you want to change my status and start paying me for the time I’m putting in? Her response was, “We’ll see what we can do to get you a nurse to help with visits”
She hates me. I know it.
