Yesterday was actually my 1st time working on the floor as a nurse in an Assisted Living Facility. I was in charged of 2 floors which consists of approximately 80+ residents. I was seriously about to loose my mind. I didn't take a break because my med pass were not done plus there was an emergency, in which I had to notify the MD, family, and the nursing director. I guess my concerns are:
1. How can I speed up my med passes to 80+ residents?
2. Is having 80+ resident normal in an assisted living?
3. This is my 1st official job as a nurse, is it normal to feel uneasy after working for only a day on the floor?
