I don't know if I am just not cut out to be a nurse or this is par for the course. About one out of every 20 shifts I realize that there is something important that I forgot to do. I just get so busy sometimes things fall through the cracks. I try to stay as organized as I can but...I don't know.
The last shift I worked I forgot to do follow up to make sure the patient got her Echo (she didn't) and they needed get a baseline before starting chem. She had about five procedures ordered.
