- by thesundowner Jun 5, '12Does anyone work at a place where the RNs do primary care - meaning, no CNAs or techs? RNs do everything for patient? (adls, toileting, vitals, etc) If so, how many patients do you have? Do you like it? How does it work?
I mean, on the floor - not in the ICU where I know RNs often do primary care.Last edit by thesundowner on Jun 5, '12 : Reason: wanted to clarify question
- Jun 5, '12 by loriangel14My floor has aids but I float to 2 other floor that have none.Usually I have 5-6 patients, depending on the census.It's fine. It's what I worked with from the time I left school. It really teachs you time management.I do like the fact that I can do all the assessing, I don't have to ask someone else the details about their voiding or skin.Even my regular floor we still do cares, the aids aren't expected to do it all.
