I am the DON at a 88 bed facility. Right now our census is 76. I am being told that the nurses are staying over on their shift too much and they have to clock out and leave after their 8 hrs. The census is down and we cannot have overtime. The nurses are saying they have too much documentation to do to get out on time. Of course they document on residents who are on antibiotics and any incidents for 72 hours and they have daily medicare A charting. We only have 5 medicare A residents at this time. However, we have about 10 residents receiving part B services. The DON before me implemented that the nurses have to document on the part B residents on Tues and Thurs. Where I worked before, we did not document on the residents receiving Part B. We only documented three days prior to therapy starting to establish a reason for therapy and then we documented when therapy ended. I would like to know how other facilities are documenting and how other DONs handle getting the nurses off their shifts on time.
