Hi, i'm new here. I've been a LPN for 6 years and was a CNA for 3 years before this. I have been working at this facility for two years and just recently went from part time (3 days a week) to full time (4 days). My schedule has changed instead of being on the same long term unit, I now float from the rehab unit one day to long term the next and back and forth. I've worked rehab only on a per diem basis.
The facility I work at is heavy. The LPN speaks reports the labs to the doctors and all changes, there is no wound nurse so we do all the treatments. I work day shift so we also have to book transportation for all appointments and make all the follow up appointments. Some days can be overwhelming.
I feel like I don't know what I should know. I feel I've lost a lot of my clinical skills. I've never had to report labs before this facility. I feel my unit supervisor on the rehab side looks down on me and she belittles me a lot. Any advice? Books to brush up on my skills, especially with labs.
I've dealt with trachs, g-tubs, urostomy's, colostomy's. Any advice would be appreciated.
