I just started working in a LTC facility and it's my first job out of school. It's taking me a long time to do the morning med pass, although I'm getting better at it. The nurse who oriented me said she saves time by signing out the midday meds at the same time she does the morning meds. Another nurse I worked with said he doesn't sign any meds out until the end of the shift because if you do it as you pull them then you have gaps, and you save a lot of time that way. And both of them pull the meds by memory and don't really look at the MAR.
Am I freak for actually signing out each med as I pull them?
