I have mixed feelings to this...
1.) If you truly felt the aid was capable of doing it alone then saying she could do it alone was enough and that you were in report and could not stop at this moment *was not a wrong thing to do*.
2.) Right hip replacement ... 1 day post op ... many things could go wrong in that five minutes regardless of the patient being able to transfer very well throughout the day with the two. I've been in this situation where I felt the patient was capable of being transferred with 1 assist (and has done it in the past) and suddenly patient feels too weak, dizzy etc and just plops/slides down to the floor which is an incident report, many calls, assessments etc. Patient safety is ALWAYS a priority over you "getting out on time or early."
3.) A patient should NEVER have to wait to use the bathroom just because you are giving report to the oncoming shift. Sure, nursing is 24 hours and you cannot be expected to do it all but that extra assist and 5 minutes away from giving report (the night nurse could go get report from another nurse or look over meds etc while waiting) may be the difference between a smooth, safe transfer or an incident report.
