  4. Advice for first job in a SNF?
    Ok I've checked it out my quote is for an annual premium, so does that mean I only have to pay that small amount once a year to protect my license?! If so, that is MORE than worth it!! Awesome :)

    I would have had a FIT over the Tamiflu alone, never mind everything else. I'm not going to administer a drug that isn't ordered & you better bet I'm gonna have someone helping me enter 40+ orders. I...

  12. Do all of your LTC charts have face sheets?
