So I'm an LPN at a LTC facility. I'm PRN but lately have really been enjoying working nights. I'm wondering what is your approach when making rounds when coming on to work your shift. I usually knock on the door, enter, and if the patients are asleep (which is most of them) make sure that they're breathing, their respirations are easy/regular and I look for signs of movement (I do all of these things for each patient). But some CNAs and nurses that I come to relieve who either make rounds with me or are making their own rounds walk from room to room talking loudly, waking patients up just because they're so loud, one CNA who was coming onto the shift with me literally shook every patient's leg waking them up to make sure they were still alive. To me it seemed like complete overkill and extremely inconsiderate. I understand no one wants to come onto the unit, make rounds, and take the keys only to realize one of the residents has been dead for 2 hours but to me some of what I've seen seems extremely unnecessary. I used to predominantly work the day and evening shift and am just wondering how other night nurses go about making their rounds.
