Change in workplace

Posted

Hi, I’m writing a paper about change in the nursing work place.  Can you help me out my describing policies, guidelines, processes, etc that you didn’t agree with but were expected to support and implement? 
thanks!

Interesting, RNsane!

Right off the top of my head, when I worked in Psych, full labs, e.g. CBC, CMP, UA, A1C , & lipids were to be done on all admissions.

The patient could be a healthy 21 year old male who was discharged and readmitted within 24 hours due to behaviors, but full workups, including a medical eval by an NP or Hospitalist, were also to be done.

There were a lot of recidivistic Patients who were admitted several, and I mean several times a year, like 12 to 18 admissions, and they had complete medical workups every single time.

I just didn't get it.

I'm sure I'll come up with more, but that's a start. Good luck on your paper!
