I work in LTC as an RN and have been told the meds have to administered within an hour before or after the time they are scheduled. The problem is that none of the nurses, including me, can get them done on time. When I was hired the nurse said I would be doing good if I got the 8am meds done by 10 am. We just moved to a new building recently with the capacity for more residents but not more nurses and it is even more challenging to get meds administered on time. Management has recently been harrassing the nurses to get the meds done by 9am or it is a med error. Can I as a nurse be held responsible for not passing meds to 34 residents on time...or is it the nursing homes problem? I would appreciate any solutions to this stressful situation and any time management strategies. During med pass I tell the CNA's to write things down on my notepad so I am not interrupted and I don't talk with the residents other than to say hi, here are you meds.
