Hi Ssalicia, you are right they can ask you any kind of questions but I think if you remain calm when/if you are approached that means alot to the accreditation team. Remember their facilities undergo the same inspections.

I would paper clip or mark the policies that you frequently use and a few that are rarely used so that if you don't know the answer say so and reach for the P&P book. For example I know the TB policy by heart but on occasion need to look up the hunger strike policy.

Have your work area neat and all meds. on count be accounted for on a sign out sheet. Have log books current. Make sure all inmate charts are properly completed.

Don't be so hard on yourself. Just do the best you can and hope your nurse admin. steps in and fill the team in on how your medical dept. runs. You will be fine. Just breathe :nuke:
