per "Upper Management" throughout Legacy, they have and will be removing chairs and workstations...the expectation is that nurses should chart "standing" in patient rooms or out in the hallway...Nurses don't need need chairs right?
Honestly, a 12 hour shift is fatiguing and nurses burnout with chairs to chart with...smart move to remove the chairs and work stations to burn them out faster.
Choose a hospital to work at that that understands that nurses need terminals and chairs to chart assessments, progress notes, admissions, discharges...Patients want to rest and don't want their nurse sitting in their room charting and making noise...Not smart for RN retention or Patient Satisfaction. Bad move Legacy Health. At a time when nurses are overworked, stressed, risking their own health and their families you decided to do this...
yes, some charting can be done in a patient room at the time of care, but definitely not all...Patients want "care" not to watch you typing into a computer and not looking at them...you are there to serve them and they will be upset if you use their room as your charting station...good luck with that.
