I was reading some of the posts, and I remember my days as a CNA and the patient-load I had, yes after a while it did get easier, but I'm wondering how many patients you have at an LTC unit. I was reading another post where the lpn had almost 50 patients in a shift.
I know it takes time but how do you manage so many patients? Do they teach time-management skills in school or is it something you have to learn yourself, kinda like learn-as-you-go type of thing? Probably a dumb question, but what if you don't get everything done? Do you stay, or does it go to the nurse relieving you? How stressful is that? How do you deal with it?
Sorry, lot's of questions, but after reading these posts for a while I've wondered about it.
