    I'm not 100% on your employer's policies, but a pain assessment can be done by all members of the health care system. I encourage the psws/aids to chart pain assessments, because I chart my own as well (RPN not RN) and the RN can chart their assessment as well.

    I'm sorry you were treated so poorly. That nurse should be spoken to - and I would encourage talking to the supervisory team about it. I'm disgusted to hear she was training when she acted like that - it just encouraged more bad habits and attitude to spread. Nursing can be so dramamtic at times. Team work, not attack your team.
