    I am an operating room nurse. My current position in the OR involves scheduling the daily surgeries, logging the procedures and submitting the charges. I also do the Performance Improvement documentation. When needed I also scrub and circulate for the actual surgeries. I am also currently a member of our Open Heart Team. By the way I work in OHIO

    OMG, that boggles my mind. I've just left LTC, for good, as I can no longer tolerate being the only nurse for 50-100 pts.
    I haven't had a lunch break in years, and I think my bladder can now hold the same amt of liquid as a Winnebago gas tank- "but that is another thread."

    I have worked LTC/SNF/rehab, med-surg, inpt hospice, hospice after hrs triage, home-care hospice office, and inpt long term psych.
    Starting in a new area on Mon.: chronic dialysis unit.

    In a med surg setting we also have oncology pts. on one of our units. I am the DON. Do you have assistant nurse managers or charge nurses. I am trying to gather info on the nursing structure at different hospitals and settings. Thanks.
