I just picked up PRN work to supplement my weekend option schedule at the hospital. Sure I'm making $8.00 more an hour at the LTC/Rehab facility, but it's EXACTLY the same way as you described. I'm so perturbed to find I have no time with the resident because I'm so focused on med pass.
This is simply not what I had expected. I thought there would be outstanding organization, lots of assessments, and tons of interventions. Instead, I just pass pills and chart the same thing in 3-4 different books and then of course in the computer.
Sigh. Just not what I wanted. I don't think I will be picking up anymore after my shifts are complete. I wanted to have fun and provide what I would personally view as "excellent care". While the care is excellent and many national and state awards have been received.... It's not up to my personal standard.
