    Would you like some cheese with that whine.

    No showers on Sundays. I am new to this facility and this is how they have it set up. I was thinking the day shift was overstaffed

    I recently started as don at a small rural private owned facility. Our numbers are: 37 patients, 5 of those are skilled. One catheter One colostomy No trachs No suctioning No feeding tubes 3 pressure sores One bed bound resident Staffing M-F LVN 8a-5p LVN 7a-7p Med aide 1p-9p LVN 7p-7a Shower aide 8a-5p Restorative 7am-3:30 p 3 cnas 7a-7p Hospitality aide 8a- 5p 3 cnas 7p-7a Saturday 4 cnas 7a-7p 3 cnas 7p-7a Sunday 3 cnas 7p-7a 3 cnas 7a-7p Weekend nurses LVN 7a-7p LVN 7p-7a LVN 7a-11p To me we seem over staffed, which is great, but with this level of staffing, should I still hear moaning and groaning about being understaffed and still be getting excuses for why things aren't done?

    Don

    I have been a nurse for close to 10 years, first as an LVN and then an RN. I started out in LTC but was in hospice for 7 years after that. I was recently hired to be don at a small rural facility. Current census 37. I need help. Where do I get all of the info regarding state regs so I know we are doing it right? Also, I was looking for MCR skilled nursing note guidelines. Any and all info, hints, and tips are appreciated.

    I need advice and pointers. Also an inspiring video.

    My boss recently challenged us to be a Johnny. You must watch the following video to understand what that means. It was very inspiring and touching. Do any of you have any ideas of how I can be a Johnny, not only today, but everyday as I take care of my hospice patients. http://www.stservicemovie.com/ Thanks.

    Young Hospice Nurses

    I have been a hospice nurse since I was 25. I had only been a nurse a little over a year. I have been in hospice now for over two years and don't want to ever do anything else. I don't think the age or experience is what really matters. I think it is the passion. You either have it or you don't and to be good at hospice, you have to have it.

    leukemia with nosebleeds, any advice?

    We use sterile lubricant with O2, works great. Also, discourage any picking, hard blowing, etc. Make sure he is not taking any aspirin products or other thinning agents.

    Tremors

    I have seen patients receiving Haldol have tremors. We give them benadryl for that and it helps.

    Learn To Say It Correctly!!

    The tropical instead of topical always get me. I almost laugh. I can't help but want to ask, "So, do they put coconut oil in that gel for you?" RisperIdal, PhenergRan, when people say Duragesic topically instead of trans dermal. There is a difference. Worked with a nurse that called a nebulizer a nebulator. We say Yonker. Also, don't you hate when a nurse writes really messy so you can't read her misspelled words? I am really bad about saying ya'll.

    Mid-Shift Shower

    That was so funny to picture. Sorry you had to go through it though.

    Your book comment made me think that it would be nice if we could put all of the stories on this forum together and make a book to sell to benefit a charity. Nurse to Nurse or something like that.

    Tell me your GPA. Just wanna compare

    3.96. Got a 93.4 on my gerontology final and that was considered a B. 94 was an A. I really beat myself up over that one B and was very upset with myself, but guess what, the girl I went to school with that had a 2.5 GPA works at the same place that I do, makes just as much money as I do, and is just as good at her job as I am. Grades don't make the nurse. Some people aren't as good at taking tests, but that doesn't mean that they aren't just as smart.
