enguin: I work agency and on my last job assignment there wer 11 patients on the floor plus 3 RNs besides my self staffing for that unit. In report I got six patients this left the other five patints for the three RNs. Needless to say I had a terrible night. Most of my patients needed medications I could not push or give IV and two were in isolation. I felt the assignment was unfair but was afraid to say anything. Has this ever happened to anyone else? If so what to do? At the end of the shift the other nurses wanted to know if there was anything they could do to help as they were walking out the door to go home. What is going on with this situation?
