At 7:35 p.m. on Monday evening I pressed the call bell and asked the Philippian aide to ask the nurse for pain meds. She left, came back, and said the nurse was on break.
At 7:55 p.m., I called her again and again she told me the nurse was on break.
At 8:00 p.m. I called Supervisor Robin and she said she would take care of it. She didn’t.
At 8:15 p.m. I called Supervisor David; he said he would take care of it. He didn’t.
At 8:35 p.m., the nurse came with the medicine. She said she had just gotten her first notice of my need. She also said she did not go on break until 8:00 p.m.
At 8:40 p.m. the Philippian aide said that she couldn’t find the nurse when she went looking for her an hour earlier.
I WAITED AN HOUR FOR PAIN MEDICINE!
WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? This happens repeatedly. What are you going to do to fix this broken system?
