It sounds kind of rough, daisie. I used to be in LTC (my favorite kind of nursing). I don't know if we had a "spy" when I was working last, but that would have been hard. I was already trying to very sneaky in my charting, meds, wound care, etc. I was also working short. That sounds decent, "working short". But most people don't realize that "working short staffed" means somebody is not going to get the care they need, feeding they need, toileting they need, relief from pain they need, wound care they need. I finally realized how I could work without guilt. Actually take care of the patients. I am a better person to do this and I just won't chart. But then I found out that this was really stupid, because I could get sued. In the medical, legal world, "If you don't chart it, it wasn't done." A year later, sadly, what I am doing is reviewing medical charts for an attorney. (I thank God I wasn't sued by anyone.) People need to understand, for example, if you pick your baby up from a daycare, and there are 2 workers for 20 babies, and they give you a documented list of everything they did that day,(but you notice your baby always has a wet diaper, seems fretful, and seems to be starved when you get home), be afraid, be very afraid.
