    Why is charting and VS q shift on medicare a big red flag? We do it at our SNF. Just did it tonight, in fact.

    yes,we do charting every shift too! i work noc shift and there's only 2 nurse's on the floor.Our census now is 98.I'm pretty scared cause i have to take care of 48 patients, 25 are medicare,plus my weekly summaries. Writing down these patients vital signs and doing medicare charting at the same time takes me forever!
