so I have given this field a year...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the work with the patients...I LOVE the feeling of one to one nursing! You can actually make a difference...so different than the hospital where i worked for 8 years..however...I SIMPLY CANNOT STAND CHARTING every day into every night when i get home...I have tried everything and there seems to be no way around this...I don't know what to do and feel like my only option is to go back to the hospital and get beat up again....
any thoughts out there..??
Hospice nurse here . . . so far we don't have OASIS charting. But the charting system we do have is unwieldy as well.
Electronic charting is the scourge of (many) nurses and physicians everywhere. We've had more than a few local physicians say "to hell with this" and leave local medical offices due to staying until almost midnight trying to get the charting completed. And these are smart, savvy, compassionate physicians.
I hate having to drag a computer into a home with me to take the focus off the patient. I hate having to drag a WOW into a room as well. I'm looking forward to retirement - not the aging part but the not-charting-on-a-computer part.
You'll have to deal with electronic medical charting wherever you go . . .
