Considering the strong majority of my patients are not Christian...not much as it would offend the family and likely cost me my job
Mom needs to figure out why she is staying 2-4 hrs post shift. Paid-budget issues. Upaid--liability & labor board issues. Common theme--not "stuck up" or "close knit" but documentation. Is she inefficient? Not using appropriate abbreviations? Double documenting? Overcharting?
If after all this time she continues to require 2-4 hours over time past shift to complete documentation there is a big problem. She needs to consult the nursing educator or documentation specialist or management to observe and audit how she's document to find the issue. Employers don't take kindly to 2-4 hours of overtime to complete what should be completed on shift.
They test any student grade 7-12 who falls asleep. Always interesting when a kid actually has narcolepsy. Fortunately the nurses have the authority to use discretion. They have a screener (bed time? Ate breakfast/lunch? What was going on in class..darkened room with movie, or bright lights for a science experiment.) then an algorithm for suspected drugs of abuse use (personally, physical appearance, mental state, vitals, pupils). They can do a seven panel screen in the nurses office (only athletes are subject to random drug and steroid check right now. But the county is looking for a county wide policy for random checks with the increased overdoses & issues lately).
the nurses were also all given narcan by the county prosecutor for staff student or visitor use at no cost. (County will replenish).
Thinking of you all lately. Hoping all of the injured are home safe with their families and the community starts to heal. Know many around the US are thinking and praying for comfort for you all in this most difficult time
Any kid that falls asleep?
