I gave pepcid early and the daughter blew a lid. Also that I crushed meds for my resident that is on a puree diet. Who knows but the daughter must have alot of pull...I am no longer working. I am sad..but hearing that meds where late or not given at all gives me hope. Anyway when one door closes another opens.
I am not nocturnal and was unable to work nights especially 12 hour shifts. I think you may be having a difficult time with the day night change. Please remember that during the day when sleeping be in complete darkness. I am sure you are. As for making it throught the night staying organized is vital in which I suppose you are. After report first write down on one side of paper room #'s then hour of times across the top. In seperate colors put time meds are due, IV's, and insulin as per resident. Check on the list every half hour and this will keep your meds flowing. Also check the previous MAR and you will be able to know each residents rtn of pain control. In down time chart. Best to you. It must be an adjustment.
