Sorry to hear that you are having such a miserable time with your LTC job. WELCOME TO LTC! I have worked as a registered nurse at 4 LTC facilities and it's the same at every single one. My first evening of orientation I was placed on the med cart by the LPN who was training me, and sent on my merry way down a hall not even knowing ANY of the residents. Talk about a nightmare. It got easier as time passed, but that med pass was one from hell. As the RN I was required to work both the medicare hall and another hall. The LPN who worked with me got the much easier 3rd hall, but was required to do all the treatments on my hall 2 only because of all the extra work I had to do as the RN.
I have worked in facilities where the RN doesn't do the med passes, but at the majority of places I have done the med passes on 2 halls. Yes, it's a nightmare. We do borrow from other residents, not supposed to, but do it. Usually someone hasn't pulled a sticker on a card. I would call pharmacy and get that resolved immediately.
LTC isn't for everyone, but sometimes that is where the jobs are and you have to go where the jobs are. I am currently working LTC at a facility that has low census and 2 nurses working in 2 separate locations in the building. At least I am not alone as I was for many years at another LTC facility where I had 75 residents to myself on the night shift. It wasn't a good thing.
I wish the best for you. It does get better with time.
