Please help! I have been a peds nurse for more years than I can believe. I have had the opporutunity to work with kids in a variety of settings. However, this is the first hospital that I have worked at where the mattresses are about 6 inches to short for the cribs. We have to put pillows at the bottom of the cribs so they fit. I have asked our manager and several other nurses about this practice. No one seems to concerned but me. Am I wrong here, I thought there had to be a safety code regarding things as this. Does anyone have any ideas what my next step should be. I don't want to see any of our patients injured. Plus I really feel we are giving a wrong message to our families when they see this type of practice. Thank you!!!!!!
