I don't nknow what LVN stands for sorry in Ontario we have RN, LPN, & hca/PSW.
When I am on as a Supervisor I Have 157 residents & staff (evening shift) I also have 3 RNA's who do the med pass and 1 RPN from 1600-2000 who does treatments, vitals etc. I have 4 HCA per floor (3).
On Nights (3) floors I have 1 RPN & HCA on 3rd and 2 HCa on 2nd and 2 HCA on 1. On weekend days it's the same as evenings.
If we are short a RPN I have to do meds on that floor ( doesn't happen often)
I have recently been promoted to a temporary Charge Nurse stricktly days and every other weekend. I find this harder then when I supervise. I have only 57 residents on my floor but with the paper work, families, Doctor's and all the care plans etc. I find I don't even have time to change my mind never mind anything else. My DON believes this is because I spend too much time doing other people's work Ie toileting, feeding, Lifts& Transfers etc. I like the hands on. I especially like being in the dining room at meals and doing the treatments. I usually have to stay 1.5hours after my shift to do paper work and this weekend I went in on my own time to do care planning.
I'll eventually get organized and learn to prioritize but until then I guess I will feel constantly behind the 8 ball.
I get great reviews from my staff as well as the DON, for my enthusiasum and dedication.
I love my job and all the the staff a very dedicateted including management which is rare
You'll do fine. If you are feeling overwhelmed. Ask your supervisor for direction.
