Final draft of email to Boss (spin off of feedback letter post) UPDATE LINK TO EMAIL SENT ON PAGE 5
It has become apparent that the agreed upon schedule change does not work with my current family obligations therefore I was hoping we could discuss a change of hours.
I am hoping you can work with me by perhaps creating a coverage schedule between Jen, Kristen and I so that this is no longer an issue and all sides benefit? I am also hoping we can discuss creating a similar coverage schedule in the evenings as well because it has become a requirement to stay 30 to 60 minutes past the end of my shift an average of 4 nights a week. I know I originally proposed staying as late as 5:30 but as time has gone on I've come to realize that because of loss of certain resources at home I would have to change it to no later than 5:15 on Mon, Tues and Wed nights for the most part.
Also an example: Recently Dr. Soandso had one patient left and I had to stay until they checked out only to find out a follow up appointment was not needed.
So perhaps in cases where there is only one patient left past 5 pm then the patient can be given a card and told to call the next morning for a follow up appointment?
Please let me know your thoughts.
