my friend who is also a lpn, got a new job this week.
its a local nursing ho me with a very bad rep. i told her to be careful...
well she has called me everyday that she has worked freaking out.
seems the adon asked her for lasix 60 out of her cart, he forgot to take his that day. she said no, and he wetn and got it from a different nurse. then the next day he asked for the keys to "audit" the cart &(she was feeding and couldnt get up) then said "oh yeah i gave so and so a vicodin" but the pt showed no sigs of pain relief and vics always make him sleep.
the staff asks her for tylenol and aleve from her cart. the nurse she follows doesnt use the mar and half the pills arent there to give anyway,as she doesnt order. to make things worse, several pts have body lice and they only had expired shampoo to use. i told her to call the state. she said she didnt know the number, it wasnt posted anywhere in the building. and she was afraid if the state came in and followed her, and the meds werent there to give she would get in trouble..
she wants to quit, but doenst want the residents to continue to not get their meds & good care they deserve.
so my question is what a good reply to the adon when he wants to audit? what to do when the state comes and your meds arent there? what if you are pretty sure the adon took the narc? he is in tight with the don & owner so who else is there to complain too?
how do you deal with no meds to give?
i have told her i would ask for help on here, she is anxiously awaiting your advice.
