Well, it's time again for JCAHO to come around and tell us what a bad job we do at saving lives and assisting the dying. I work two jobs and have to go through all their baloney more often than most and I'm gettin sick of it. After more than 20 years in critical care I'm considering a career change just because of their ridiculous requirements. The paperwork is mountainous. I belong to a union and actually feel sorry for my administrators who have to heave this crap on us! I can see the need for regulation as not all hospitals do a good job, but come on! No hospital I know of is actually out to KILL patients!! We need to let our Boards of Nursing, legislators, and nursing organizations know how we feel. Get these regs changed before there are NO nurses because we're lost in all their paperwork!!
