Our job as charge nurse from 7a-7p consists of signing off doctor's orders and putting the orders into the computer. We usually do not take any patients however float between and help the other nurses on the floor. We are a resource for others. We round with doctors, if requested as some like to round on their own. We chart VS, do Accu-checks in the morning, run heart monitor strips and do mainly paperwork throughout the day. It does not sound like much, but between answering phones and callbells, dealing with family members and doctors and all the unexpected in between, it can actually be a lot.
