I've been working in an LTAC (Long term acute care hospital) for about one year. Very much like acute med-surg and stepdown patients elsewhere. My problem is, since they are freestanding there is little or no support.
We have 30 patients 3 rn's, 3 lpn's, 3 stna's. No other departments in this hospital we are in a community building with our one floor converted to a "hospital". I work nights, no doctors or ancillary to help in case of codes. Very scary, wondering if anyone else has worked in this situation. I'm not sure if I like that in case of a code I am the code leader (I'm shift supervisor) Love some input.
