This is my first week in assisted living as RSD. I come from med surg, skilled nursging background. I am coming into a situtation that has no systems in place. I have found numerous meds that have not been given on the MAR, BS that were not written down on the MAR, service plans that have not been done. The pervious RSD is not there any longer. We are due for state to walk in the door any day now. I am doing all I can to get these issues fixed asap by holding in-services and getting all I can done with the time I have.
The question I have is will I be held responsible for the way the place is now if I just got hired on?
I have found narcotics that weren't locked and so many med errors that I can't possibly write them all up. Just really need some direction here. Thanks so much.
