I have a question for everyone. Does the nursing staff at your facility have assigned cleaning duties? I was posting on another thread and I happened to mention that at our facility we have assigned cleaning duties. Some of the cleaning duties entail cleaning the med room and the med room fridge, cleaning our nurses's stations (dust and such), dusting the exterior of the crash cart, checking for outdates, and the list goes on. Is the common pracitice in hospitals and LTC facilities? This is the only hospital I have worked for since I got of nursing school
. I work for small, rural facility with about 85 beds total. On the thread I was mentioning this, another poster acted really suprised that we had cleaning duties. Just want to know if this is commonplace. Thanks.
