Thanks for all your rseponses.
I did raise the issue with the DON---after the third incident, she told me about the E-kit, which was hardly full, even NPH back-up is not available.
I was told that I will be moving to another position (unnamed), my schedule was re-arranged, I was suddenly asked to not show up on a scheduled work bec. of a new schedule and to call the DON and clarify and I never heard back again.
So, this is LTC? When your own supervisor treat you like a piece of ---- and was just brushed off for raising a relevant issue that may affect patients, much less hurt them?
I called the Ombudsman and expressed my concerns, the rep said that it's a common thing in LTC---they got to do what they got to do. So, I just dropped the idea because they too didn't do anything.
So, this is nursing? I hope to get this to the residents' families and get it to the public to give these nursing homes a boot!
It's an outrage that this is happening---simple procedural drug supply can't even be met. I am truly disappointed.
If there's a DON out there reading this....why do you do what you do and how do you address this?
It may sound simple but this is a violation nonetheless. And these nurses training me who have the audacity to say ----"I know this is wrong but this is what you should do"................
