I just got a job..My first LVN job...The ratio is not bad..You see there are 3 LVNs for 50 patients...But the thing is managment, wants 3 people working together on those 50 patents and not just one LVN being overwhealmed with getting most of the work..That is how I feel and it suppose to be orientation for me..Very sad
I was happy I got the job but now, I will look elsewhere for a better enviornment..I hope it is out there...I was busting my #^%$ working and two lvns were laughing and talking about victoria secreat
at the nurses station..And the nurse that did help me kind of shamed me..She said she gave that certain patient meds but never did...I found out in the end of the shift in the late afternoon that the morning meds were not given by looking at the charts..
Now that is kind of bad..It is just unsafe because the patient could die without his daily meds..And here I am a newbie at the nursing home and on the new hire probation period..
You see, the turn over is high there for some reason and I guess this is the reason and a person does not have to be genious to figure it out.
