Real Charting!!

  1. At the LTC facility I work at, we have a 94 year old lady who "dies" on a regular basis. Nothing wrong with her, she's very healthy, but sometimes she just feels like being 'dead'. In fact you can stick your head in her room and say " Are you dead today??" and she'll let you know. The midnight nurse charted for her last night, (direct quote) "Resident complained of being dead. Wanted family and mortician notified.":chuckle

    Perhaps the State Board of Nursing will take matters out of the hands of the IDIOT administrators at this hospital by revoking or suspending the licenses of these nurses. One can only hope!

    "That is great." I worked in ltc for 13 years and oh the stories we could tell. Its kinda like when I asked one of my elderly wise women "Are you hard of hearing?" I shouted. And she said "What did you say , honey?" lol
