Hi, I work 12 hours shifts as an RN at a large hospital. DD is 6 months old and thus far I EP for her due to poor latch. I was called into the manager's office a few weeks ago to tell me that I was taking too much time to pump. I began keeping my pump and millk in a different location so that he would not be able to track my pumping as easily. I was called back in yesterday and told the same thing all over again. Currently I pump every 4 hours for 15-20 minutes along with DD's feeding cycle.
Yesterday I was again called to the manager's office and was told again that I need to be available at all times for patient care. I agree that I need to be available, but I am entitled to breaks too and if I choose to pump on my breaks then I think I should be allowed to do so in peace.
I have been "invited" for another discussion on Friday. Do any of you ladies have any recommendations/ ideas?
