I now work at a smaller community hospital ICU , and was asked to assist to review our triage/charge nurse orientation process. We rotate triage among staff members. Our triage always has 2 patients, out of a 12 bed ICU. There is no additional pay benefit. I was wondering does your hospital have a specific charge/triage job description and orientation plan? How long does orientation last?
In researching at our hospital, we do not have a specific description and will be writing one.
Would love if you could share what charge/ triage entails at your place? Do you have a written policy you could share.
