I'm a new grad in LTC. I have 40 residents and I have to do EVERYTHING within my 8 hour shift. At first I tried to tell myself "It's ok if I take my time passing meds" and "It's alright if I stay longer to finish my paperwork", but now I realized things can't always be like that. I feel like in order for me to finish on time, I have to cut corners (haven't taken any short cuts yet). I hate that this job is highly based on rushing from start to finish. Every minute counts and management is constantly down my back about speed. I guess in LTC, good nurses finish last.
