I'm guessing you worked LTC. If so, if anyone wanted to find a reason for any nurse to get canned they could. When you take care of way to many patients you learn to cut "safe" corners. If LTC nurses did it by the book, noone would get their am meds until noon and their noon meds till mid after noon, etc. We as LTC nurse do our best and bless the rest because I've come to terms with I'm am only one person and if someone can show me how to do it by the book in an 8-10 hour shift with 25-30 residents, 1-2 admissions, discharges, sending people out to ER, triaging the residents who are ill, wound care, tubefeeding, medicare charting, accucheck, administering insulin with complete accuracy, writing up fall reports, neuro checks when they hit their head, infection control reports for all the residents on antibiotics, doing blood draws, collecting urine and of course helping to bathe and toilet d/t shortage of CNA's, than please do.......That's why I'm going back to school to get my RN, hoping that the grass is greener when the options are broader.
