Nurse Betty- Do you send the blister packs out with your residents? Is that what the families are signing out??
We send out the medications, even PRN Narc's for stays >overnight (ie weekend trips, vacays, etc). The RP signs for them akowledging receipt, we sign saying we gave it to them. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS COUNTED. They are given their insulins should that apply, but no needles. If it's only going to be for a few hours, we don't play "catch up" we simply sign the MAR as OOP. Of course, our meds are dispensed in blister packs for the patient directly by the pharm. We have a policy in place that prevents our building using RX's that come in bottles that the family brings in. (Interesting huh?)
:redlight:I have a question? What were you doing looking so closely at your patients FB page? Seems like you were invading the patients privacy. . I have many, many FB friends, and if you were to look at them all you would have to be signed into my account and hit the all friends list. What was your excuse to the patient while you were wading through their friends list? Were you standing behind the patient and looking over their shoulder? You seem to want to tell these nurses what to do in the cause of Nurse/Patient distance, but how did you find all this out?:typing I wonder if you explained to upper management how you came to this conclusion? And if part of the answer is that you are on their friends list, I'd defriend you quickly.
