I am an LPN working at an ALF that uses only LPN's and not med techs. I pass meds to 15-30 people all based on which shift I work. The treatments are very minor like skin tears and if anything beyond that then a wound care nurse comes in from the outside and do those things. I supervise staff that works with the residents ranging from 4-8 people all based on which shift. Incident reports if the resident is found on the floor or with a skin tear. Chart in the LNS book which resident had treatment done, receive oxygen during my shift or sleeps with a CPAP on my shift. Their are no IV fluids to be concerned about and if they have a foley it is for a very short while. Drama can be anywhere but you usually have a much smaller staff at ALF than LTF. If an ER arise than you send them out to the hospital do all the necessary paperwork as normal. This is what I do and the pay is not bad at all.I hope this is a help.
