First of all........I have a problem with the "there was'nt enought time" excuses. I work in a LTC facility(little over a year) and have worked all of the units. One of our units holds up to 44 residents. During the day that unit get 3-4 aides, at night 2. Another unit holds 28 residents, they get 2 aides 24/7. Also, there is a unit that can hold 35 they get 3 aides during the day and 2 a night. Alzheimers unit holds 16, they get 1 aide and 1 nurse during day, then 2 aides afternoon and 2 aides at night, while nurse is on other unit but still available. Finally, there is a unit that holds 21 residents and has 2 aides during the day and at night 80% of the time has one aide. Now, with all of that said, I work 7p-7a. I have many of times worked the unit with 21 residents by myself and have still been able to do ALL of my checks, my charting, pass linens/clothes, take residents who are able to the bathroom as needed and answer call lights.In addition, in the mornings.....bathe, dress, and provide care to eight or more residents within a 2 and a half hour time frame.... Sometimes I even do the I&O's for my nurse as well as her vitals. Yeah, it sucks and if you are not able to do it, then you need to go and talk to someone in charge, however it can be done. I am sorry, but that is exactly why LTC facilities and STNA's get bad wraps! I do agree that the staffing sucks, however that is no reason to not give 110% to our residents. I am 6 months pregnant and can do it!
Furthermore, no---one can MAKE you falsify anything!
