Hi everyone, I dunno if it's normal or is it just me. I'm a new RN here in Canada (had 1 year pediatrics experience in Singapore) and I just got hired in a long term care and already worked 8shifts since then. I'm having problems when it comes to my work, coz in our nursing home I always get evening shifts which is the hardest.There's only one RN who's in charge with all med pass. I only have 4 PSW's and no RPN in the evening unlike in the morning there's one or two RPN's who's in charge with the med pass. I find it difficult to remember each resident because I am being assigned to 3 different floors and I only get 3 shifts per week and my facility did not give me a proper orientation. Is it just normal here to have 1 nurse for 45residents without any RPN to help with the med pass? I don't think it is still safe for the patients, because honestly with the volume of work I don't get to assess and even know each resident one by one. I need advice on how to manage my time and become efficient with the med pass. I get yelled by residents because of course I'm slow and some of the meds are late because i have to check the bracelets of each resident. It takes me 3-3.5 hours to complete my med pass. I don't even have time to eat and it's really not healthy. Please, any advice would be appreciated. It's driving me nuts and I always palpitate whenever I come to work coz I'm still not comfortable with it.
