My work wants us to start a new procedure. This new documentation would take 6 to 8 minutes additional for me each time I give certain meds. Worst case scenario, some of my patients get 15 of these per shift and they want it done twice per delivery.
I have no problem with documentating anything,but the program I use should be made to work with what they want, not stuffing an additional program at me that wont even work on my med cart.
As it stands, there are days I do not get lunch until 2pm because I am too busy. This new process would drown me!
I want to go to the CNO and explain to her that programmers work for US, not us for them and that this additional step will make us look great with jahco, but our customer satisfaction rate will go down because my head will be in a computer.
You guys know that patients dont understand why we sit around on the computer "all the time" already, right.
Would you go? Am I shooting myself in the foot by going and being assertive?
I refused to sign the paper stating tht I would comply 100%. I said it would not be possible for me to comply, and I would not sign. I was not the only nurse.
