False vitals data! Long story short, a girl in the same room as me took a pt's vital signs. She presented me with the data and it included a b/p... I asked her how she got it because she didn't have the station's cuff or stethoscope. She told me she had her own equipment. I asked her, "Where?" then she told me she had magic hands!
This CNA has been on my station for 8 years. I'm brand new (second week).
I told the charge nurse that I hadn't seen her use any device to measure vitals.
What the heck? Why give false data? What are consequences of false vitals?
I wish action would be taken against these people. They are endangering lives for goodness sake!
