I work on a 48 bed unit where the nursing shifts are 3pm to 930 pm or 3pm to 11 pm.
How do you manage your time if working the 3pm to 11pm shift when the other nurse leaves at 930 pm? How do you manage your time when dealing with a ruespiratory outbreak? I worked the short shift tonight and I just found it crazy overwhelming!
it has definatley been hard go to work on this particular unit. It's more med surg i guess as compared to another unit I also work on which is a locked unit. I've been a nurse for 7 months now, this is only the second outbreak in which i had to work, only this time, i dont have to administer tamiflu to everyone.
