I'm sure not all correctional facilities are the same any more than all hospitals are the same. I even worked at a correctional facility once. However, I'd like to know what RN's do at YOUR correctional facility, please. Thank You
Medication ordering and check-in
Infirmary patient care
Man down response
Outpatient mental health care
After hours provider contact
Gatekeeper assistance for rural camps
Nurse sick call
Just what I can remember off the top of my head.
Everything that Orca mentioned we do at my prison. I am in the infirmary, I avoid all other sections if I can help it, the infirmary is my home! We have so many different acuities back there, I see so much. Everything from ortho, to med/surg, to hospice, and long term care. Right now I have a guy with an LVAD, 5 total care patients, 2 guys with PICC lines, 2 new ileostomies, among many others.
