I am a 8 month old new RN. I have a question about the "narc count". I work at a nursing home/rehab center. I usually work the 7-3 shift, and 9 times out of 10 the 3-11 nurse is always 15-20 minutes late. This is one particular nurse that is always late, and she typically works on the same days that I do. Giving her report plus counting the narcs usually take 20+ minutes. At 3:15 I gave up waiting for this particular nurse, so the other RN on the same shift and myself completed the narc count as we were waiting for the incoming nurse. I got a call the day after this event saying that I may get a written warning for counting with a day shift nurse instead of the incoming nurse. my question is, if the narc count was correct, no meds were missing, and the incoming nurse SIGNED the narc log saying that she counted with me.. can i really be written up for this?
