I am concerned that my fellow nurses have become careless in their nursing practice. I can't tell you how many times I have questioned why a patient who is obviously in pain, and hasn't recieved prescribed narcotics for their pain because the nurses on shift before me didn't want to be the first or only one giving a narcotic. I have seen geriatric second day post-op ORIF hips/TKR on Q 4 hour APAP! Is this a trend? Are we too busy? Or is it that we just don't care.
