    7:30- start 8pm vitals, safety checks, change pt's as needed, pass diabetic snacks, turn hospice pt's chart
    10- safety checks, bed alarms on, turn hospice pt's, change as needed, chart
    11:20 ish- start 12 vitals (all pt's), safety checks, turn hospice pt's, change as needed
    12:30 ish- chart, take break (on a smooth night)
    1:30- safety checks, turn hospice pt's, change as needed
    2- chart (usually after this we have a bit of down time)
    3:30- start 4am vitals, turn hospice pt's, get daily weights, change as needed, safety checks
    4- chart
    5-6 usually just answer call lights &wait for the ay CNA's to make it in
