Need your assessment.Hospital. Two floor nurses.6 pts., 5 heavy/total care requiring frequent transfers about every 15 minutes...bed to commode, commode to chair, chair to commode, return to bed, and then all over again. These pts. are at least two assist, thus tying-up both nurses. Meds every 1/2 to 1 hr. on most pts., blood transfusion, hematests, assessments, baths, nausea/vomiting, restless dying pt., pleural drain procedure, dressing changes, meal tray delivery, feeders, facility transfer, of course new orders and more new orders, paperwork and more paperwork.No aides/orderlies/assistants. ALL care is Nurse provided. Meeting called to discuss this day after Nurse first approached charge and then higher-up about "drowning" and needing floor assistance. Was told to expect increases in workload with no additional Nurses assigned or any guarantee of nurse aide assistance. Was told that each request for help may or may not be honored at CN discretion....including sending someone to help with physical transfers.Now, we've been working this way for awhile now and today was just way over-board.By the time the day ended we were exhausted (mentally and physically) and famished....no breaks, no lunch. It takes its toll when it's the norm VS the exception. So, what's your assessment of this? I'd appreciate some direction.
