I have been a nurse for 9 years. working currently on a ortho floor. What completely boggles my mind on a routine basis is the fact that for some reason the managment feels that orthopedics does not require appropriate staffing. As an experienced nurse in med-surg i will tell u that when u have 4 post-op total joints there is a tremendous demand of time for each patient.
I think that those who routinely do not experience this demand like managment loose there perspective on patient care. Do u experience this as well please respond.
