What do you do?

  1. I'm sure not all correctional facilities are the same any more than all hospitals are the same. I even worked at a correctional facility once. However, I'd like to know what RN's do at YOUR correctional facility, please. Thank You

    Everything that Orca mentioned we do at my prison. I am in the infirmary, I avoid all other sections if I can help it, the infirmary is my home! We have so many different acuities back there, I see so much. Everything from ortho, to med/surg, to hospice, and long term care. Right now I have a guy with an LVAD, 5 total care patients, 2 guys with PICC lines, 2 new ileostomies, among many others.
