I have been working at a LTC facility for two months after graduating in August. I feel somewhat comfortable (although not as fast as I would like to be) with the med passes and treatments. The paperwork is a different story. I can get my basic paperwork done during my shift, but if physician's orders come in, it really throws my night off. Do P.O. have to be done by the shift in which they are faxed, or can you try to complete what you need to do, and pass the remaining ones onto the next shift? The next shift is night, and I know they will have time to complete the orders.
Thanks. I really do like the work, but I don't have time to do the unit clerks job, and we don't have one 3-11.
