The last night we again worked short staffed, it did not start out that way. We were fully staffed when we were informed that one person had to go to another floor someone had called in. I don't understand how they can pull someone from trasitional care and put them on long term care. Why could not some one from long term stay over a shift? I know why they did not want to. It is hard to give addiquate care for people when you are short staffed. The night that I worked the patients were complaining about having to wait to long to have the call light answered. It is not easy to tell them they have to wait to go to the bathroom. I don't know why I stay in this line of work.
