I've posted about it before, it's a care home.
They are incredibly short staffed due to people off sick, quitting or being on holiday. As a result, they're ringing up staff on their days off and holidays trying to get them in.
I'm contracted for 3 night shifts a week but I was told I'd be given 4 for the first 2 weeks. It seemed a lot, but I'd told myself it would only be for these 2 weeks.
They needed extra staff yesterday so I have worked a 16-hour night shift, from 3pm-7am.
I am expected back tonight from 9pm-7am, same again tomorrow night, and I did Wednesday night.
I feel like absolute death, so ill and i actually collapsed this morning at 4am and hit my knee on the floor.
I feel terribly sick, plus I have awful hayfever.
I can't see myself doing another 2 night shifts on the run.
All this for minimum wage, plus me and other staff have stayed late after every shift.
This morning the manager came in, barely even looked at me despite knowing I'm new and didn't thank me for doing 16 hours for them.
It seems poor taste ringing in sick already but I feel rotten, 46 hours in a week and 16 hours with 3 night shifts is really difficult conditions. What would hou do ?
