As all of you may know we're constantly medicating for pain on the floor, every 3 to 4 hrs lortab, percocet etc...I'm good about documenting the pain rating on the 1-10 scale and my interventions for the pain but I'm not so good about remembering to document my pain reassessment? I may be talking to the patient and ask them but forget to document in the computer? :uhoh21: And I forget to do my pain assessment every 4 hrs....
And as far as lortab and percocet...what's the big difference and which is better for pain? I'm still trying to figure the 2 out....

Oh yeah!!! We even have "secret sleuths" or some stupid thing like that, where we're supposed to "sign up" for a period of time, following our co-workers in secret to make sure they DO IT and DOCUMENT IT!!! Guess what? I neglected to sign up. How do they dream up this stuff???
