Overbearing manager means somebody for whom relaxing after doing your job or reading on downtime means lazying around.

    You still have times when there is nothing to do?

    I haven’t seen that… in decades.

    If there is no patient care there is documentation. If there is no documentation there is administration/supplies. If that is done there is something to clean.

    And if that is done there might be a paper/medical book to read.Or discuss a case with someone.

    …Okay, you got me…I am a former manager…

    But tbf, we have sacred break times here, but when you work you work. (And well, we have less hours than people in other countries)

      No the understaffed hospitals are why nurses are being overworked and not able to manage the high patient load.

      You’re aiming your rage at the wrong target.

      No, that’s because of the crushing weight of the charting and these places being chronically understaffed due to corporate greed. I worked as a CNA in a hospital, and we were doing our best to help everyone every second of our shift. It probably seemed like we were just disappearing because we never knew when we went into a room if we’d encounter a few seconds of questions, or if it would be an hour of assistance due to an emergency.

      But I’ve also worked overnight at a nursing home, and there was definitely some downtime there, including for nurses.

    Where in your job description does it say you can “relax after doing your job or reading on downtime”?

    I’m sure there is something for you to do?
