Ah poo....JCAHO


As a few of you know I joined this forum not to long ago as I finally found a job as a nurse and felt I could contribute. But so far I've only had questions.

Tonight is no different!

I've been a nurse here for a couple (literally) weeks and JCAHO is here. Anyone have any tips from past experience?

Specializes in Heme Onc.

Step 1. Clock out

Step 2. Get in your car

Step 3. Drive

Step 4. Never return

Has 6 years experience.

I'm surprised that your nursing managers give you more than a five minute break from hearing about what you should do. I work overnight and still hear about it endlessly ...but I tune out, so I'm not much help to you. Sorry!

I guess I'm lucky in the fact they didn't visit my unit tonight. Apparently they decided to look over records and will be up tomorrow. Hopefully after that I'll still have a job! :o

Well hopefully you work at my hospital because I'm off for the next three nights.

I had a 8 day lay off a few weeks ago and I came back to an email describing what they found. Was excited that I missed it...nope was I missed were the words from another facility in the system.
