Yes, it is annoying. I want to hurry up and get started and get my work done. Some complain that they have to stay overtime to do their charting. The fact is that if they would just "shut up" they could probably leave a lot sooner.

How about "hey, lets do report and count now so I can get started and out of your way if you want to chart?"

When I worked the floor as charge nurse for a unit and also my facility nurses do now, do not accept unit without report and count...period. At the start of your shift. If off going nurse was not ready to report/count with me, wouldnt start until they were ready.

Counting your medications is very important. You dont want to find out 3 hours later in to your shift that someone didnt sign out for a narc. Then its on you to prove how, when, etc. it was given. What if they forgot to record it in NN or prn sheet. All they have to say is you accepted the cart. Then it is on you.
