I am wondering how other Directors of Nursing in Correctional Facilities are doing? Between getting bogged down with insignificant petty things all day every day and trying to keep up with State reports, contractor reports, Quality Control reports, and meetings...............it seems I don't have teh MUCH NEEDED TIME to get out there with my nurses. I want to see what's going on, give them support and guidance, help them with things they may struggle with. They are fighting us on going to all computer documentation (though it is a condition of employment), the call ins are off the hook, the doctors write crazy orders (though they have been told over and over to stop writing orders for medical shoes, lay-ins, even bed assignment moves)!?!?! I took the position over just a short time ago. Prior they hadn't had any guidance or support. Now we have a good team in place and are trying to get them back on track, but they are "killing us". How are other DON's doing. I have about 60+ staff (including docs and mental health staff), and over 2,000 inmates. Please share with a frustrated DON. Thanks!
