Still bitter about the whole call tech only Wednesday and Friday

It seems that all I’ve done with week has been talking through my disappointment with the call only tech on Wednesday and Friday.

I mean, a lot.

A lot.

Of course I teared up. I was so intensely frustrated.

It all started when the ANM noticed that we were going to have three rooms running past 1700 and only two techs.

I reminded them, gently, not nearly at the top of my lungs, that this was an unintended consequence of only having the call techs cover the Wednesday and Friday from 1900-2300.

That they were leaving evening understaffed, on purpose, twice a week.

And I also mentioned that I was a wee bit upset at doing all the work myself.

Which is what I was told.

That the techs would only come in if there was a case.

I was told by them this was the case.

I had printed out my blog post from that day, the one I was so incensed about, sat the ANM down and made them read it. Because when I am upset words are sometimes hard.

“Oh, no, no, no”, they backtracked, fast. “If you need them, call them in.”

I reminded them this was not the story I got when they informed me about this weeks ago.

And so I had been doing all the evening work myself.

And seething with resentment.

I also pointed out that this whole construct that they made was helping with productivity.

Because 12 hours a week was not being staffed.

“Oh, no, no, no,” they insisted. “That is not the case.”

Forgive me if I don’t believe you.
