I will be working on a medical floor sometimes next month and would like to know how your schedules like on your floor. I assume 7a-7p meds and tx schedules on med/surg very generic across the board and won't be too much of a different? How are the meds being scheduled? How many times are the pts being medicated for 7a-7p shift? I work in rehap as prn. My shift is 3-11p. After obtaining the report during shift change, I have to do BS check, pass meds, do tx. After these done, I then do charting and other stuff. Once charting is done than I start the 9pm meds. Sometimes I get behind but only because I have 20+ pts to deal with. We would be extremely lucky to have less than 15 pts. How is that compare to the hospital? From what I was told, each nurse will have 5-8 pts so to me this is doable consider I have to care for 20+ in 8 hours shift in the rehap. Do I have a realistic expectation here? I can't wait to hear what you all have to say. Thanks!
