I work under a Rad Tech Manager, No nursing manager to speak of. They are very defensive and say that they have taken the test(10 basic questions), and are ACLS certified, and that the hospital policy supports them giving CS under supervisioin of a Dr. THis is an Interventional area, that runs all its RN's off because they are under the impression that they can do pt assessments themselves.
I feel like I am banging my head against a wall with these people, they keep going back to their "Hospital Policy", I go to my NPA, they have suggested I go higher if I am not happy with this plan of care, but that makes me the bad guy of the Unit. I guess I signed on to be Pt advocate first, so wish me luck and thank you so much for all the great information. The support is greatly appreciated!!!
