I've had it with nurses not doing what they are supposed to do! There was an order to 'encourage fluids every shift and monitor intake on Caretracker" For 3 days the nurses signed off the order, but not one of them documented or even looked at Caretracker. If I didn't think the DPH would have a hissy fit, I'd write in the MAR "Stand in the middle of the hall way naked and whistle the Star Spangled Banner". I'm sure they'd sign that off, too. What is the matter with these people? The nurse practitioner is 'surprised' we can do IVs??? Jeezlies Peezlies I want to smack 'em all upside the head and yell " WAKE UP.....YOU"RE A NURSE....DIDN'T YOU LEARN ANYTHING IN SCHOOL????"
Thank you for letting me vent.
