On midnights I start by doing midnight meds, stock carts, treatments such as bandage changes, skin assessments (they want all of these done on midnights if possbible), some residents get up at night, mostly the ones with behaviors. Last night I got hit over the head with a clipboard as one snuck up behind me at the nursing station. Charting, careplans, pharmacy. Depending on the night, anything that goes on during dayshift, patient care, calling the Doctor if needed, etc. In the morning we start morning med pass until the day shift shows up, this means a mad rush the last 2 hours of the shift. In other words we have plenty of work to do on midnights, Ive missed breaks many times.
