One word: adult diapers. Wait, that's two words, but when it comes to a grown-ass woman soiling herself intentionally, who wants to be persnickety about word counts?
i think people should get more breaks, i hate working my life away. i work 12 hour shifts but we technically get an hour and a half worth of breaks. job i have now pretty much half the night is a break. worked some jobs where I've had no breaks and its constant go go go, no thanks.
It’s so sad that most of these comments are from people saying they work longer hours with less breaks to make it seem like OP’s situation isn’t so bad. Everyone who works several hours should get sufficient breaks. The work-obsessed world we live in is not healthy.
I feel bad for you, but I work 12 hour shifts, and though we're entitled to 1 30 minute break where we clock out and 2 15 minute ones where we don't, the way my workload works out, I'm lucky if I get to take a full 30 minute break before someone comes to tell me one of my patients needs something. And even after I hand them off, I'm still there hours later doing charting. If you don't chart it, you didn't do it. And the second you try to chart, even if you just got out of their room, they're on the call bell again. but it's ok. I'm getting paid to stay late to finish charting. And if I'm dragged away from my food, I clock back in. And if my boss asks why I didn't take my full 30, I'll say I couldn't because all the other nurses were with their own patients and the CNA told me my patient was in bad condition, and I wasn't about to lose my license letting my patient die so I could take 30 minutes to eat and rest my feet. Honestly, I'm glad I even have a job during this pandemic. I traveled far and wide to get this job. Literally from one side of the US to the other because I just got my license snack dab in the middle of this pandemic and where I was wasn't willing to train and wanted experience, so I'll be damned if I let me getting 5 12-h shifts in a row before a day off or me being shorted on breaks make me run away from the work I got, especially since they took me and trained me during this crap show of a pandemic. Now I just gotta pray and pray at the end of this all, I make it back to my family. But right now, all I'm thinking is, thank God I have a job right now. There are so many who don't.
