You're getting and admit. ::...Fine::Register Today!
- by RH-CC2011 May 21, '121730hrs. - I said "fine!", because it was my second admit of the day; I just got done with my first admit (Hx, assessment, meds, labs, done!), discharged two pt's; and got to take lunch today too! (Whooo-Hoooooo)
1830hrs. - Pt arrives on floor. ...***** ...No Report? --NO Idiot!, It's a direct admit!
::Slap Forehead:: OK, Let's greet the pt.
Hello Mr/Ms Late Arrival. What brings you in today? ...mmm, hmm... !!!!!What?,,, Oh no you didn't!!!! You DIDN'T say "CHEST PAIN" !!!
So much for any hope of leaving on time! LOL
- May 23, '12 by tokmomthe most is two on average. The ED has to bring them up no later than 10 min before end of shift.
- May 23, '12 by xxlilkacixxMost of the time 2. We are all electronic so the worst night EVER was when I got 4 new patients, in a 2 hour period, 3 were direct admits, AND the computers went down! Left work 4 hours late--
- May 24, '12 by DEgalRNThis is really a "it depends" question. I've had days where I start with 5 or 6 patients and don't D/C anyone so I don't get anyone. And I've had days where I flip my whole assignment. Most likely, I'm probably going to get 1-2 admits.
- May 28, '12 by MattNurseI don't mind admissions, sometimes 2-3, depends on our census and ED census. I do as much as I can and pass it on to the next shift. Nursing is 24/7 so I don't see why you would have to stay later, just let the next shift take the patient like they should.
