I now am working in LTC 7p-7a, I have 36 residents I am responsible for. I got a whole week of orientation which did not cover near what I am to know, when it comes to paper work. So in my part of the building at night there are 2 nurses to cover 70 residents. I still do NOT have the paper work down. I have asked for help and I get "oh do this,it will all come to you". Well last night I did not understand how to finish off some orders the day nurse left. And of course I do not even look at these orders till Im done with a med pass. NOTHING was said to me in report about stopping a drug, and after I was done with med pass, and sending a "R" out to the hospital, hanging two new TF, and finishing my other charting, I look at the new orders and it says to DC tranzodone.
So this morning when the same nurse who left all this for me comes in and sees I did not do the new orders, she got all ****** off and went to the DON. Well I get a phone call and I explain, #1 she did not give me a heads up about the DC, #2 I could not read half of her writing and the supervisor that night said for me not to do it, to leave it for her in the morning, #3 that I am still learning as I go because NOBODY can seem to take 5 minutes and write done a policy on how to do orders!!!
I have asked and asked I need more help with the paper work and it seems to fall on deaf ears.
I just started school for my RN, I want to get back into the hospital, this place is so close to home (1 mile) I thought it was a good idea at the time.
