Nursing homes and JCAHO

  1. Hi All! I just recently started working PRN on a skilled nursing unit at a nursing home. One of the reason I avoided nursing homes was how difficult it was to follow state protocol and take care of so many clients (who could not be identified) and to do it without putting them in danger as well as my license. Even though I only care for 7 - 12 patients, there is still so much stress to do it according to JCAHO standards (overtime to complete everything). Anyone have any advise? I am a fairly new LVN and an RN student, thank God for some knowledge. Thanking you in advance for any responses. Jennella
