Taking a break

I'm going to take a little break.  Things have been very crazy at work, and have now gotten crazier.  We have been having a nursing shortage and now just lost another one, with no notice.  This means I am working the floor, on varying shifts and am trying to get my regular work done too.  I worked over 60 hours last week and it doesn't look like this week will be any different.  I can't keep up here, so I'm stepping away, hopefully for a short time.   This nursing shortage appears to be going on all over our area which makes it even harder to find good help.  Prayers for more help would be appreciated!

I understand and will be here when things calm down and you have time to post again. I will pray you can get some new nurses to ease the time you have to work.

Bless you, Mari! I pray that good people will be led to apply at your nursing home. That’s a lot of work hours in a week!!

Hi my sweet friend.

Sounds as though you have a great deal to worry about just now, so you taking time to reach out to me is more than a sweet consideration; thank you, thank you!!!
I guess I'm still just settling in.

Wishes for you to get the additional help that you need!
Don't wear yourself out!
