HI, got questions? Just ask. :)
run!!! Sounds like that place is out of control and basically do not give a ____________! If they are not staffed sufficiently, then they should not be doing cases. @ 8-ball has pretty much covered the rest of what I would say.
Have you thought of going to see patient advocacy? Perhaps PI coordinator?
And that manager you have for a boss is worthless!
Got my retirement orders. Got a new job already and a new house. Ready to go back to being a private citizen. Wearing the uniform has been a great run but it is time to tripple dip
If you are running pressor gtts or propofol/versed/fentanyl, always make sure you have plenty left in the bag. I had a couple of times where a colleague gave report and stated that there was plenty of juice in the bag. From now on, when I take pt's from that "colleague," we do a full 200% hands on and visual inspection during hand off. If I find a bag running low, I make them order a new one before they go home.
Not trying to insult ANYONE as per my comment (#183). In my organization, we do not have keys and even when deployed in austere regions of the world, LPNs are/were not allowed to carry such keys. Apologies to those that feel offended. We are all entitled to our own opinions but there will be times (like my post) that some will feel otherwise. Carry on.
