RN, Nurse Manager

  1. I currently work on a 45 skilled bed unit. During the past two years, we have been admitting highly complex ill patients. I feel as though I no longer work in a nursing home due to the high acuity level of the patients we serve. Does other nurse manager that work in nursing home settings feel this way?

    I am not a nurse manager, I am one of the infusion nurses who takes call to start IV's on your patients, yes, your acuity is higher, and it keep you in buisness.
    With nurses there, a patient should not have to be admitted to a major facility just for a one time a day anti biotic, IV. All you have to do is call us if there is a problem. I rather be called first not after all the different nurses try to find a vein.
    It is today's nursing home. You are not alone.
