    meds - confused

    Sounds like this was PRN medication. If you check EN scope it will say something along the lines of prn and variable dose may only be administered in consultation with and under supervision of/ or delegated by RN. Make sure you are clear on your scope of practice and doses of common meds.

    Bravo LTC Nurses!

    Working in LTC

    The first year is always really hard and LTC/Nursing home is really hard - as you said the ratios and workload are insane, budget constraints and family expectations just add to the pressure, its not for everyone but the rewards and satisfaction can be huge. Give it some time before you decide if its for you or not. Keep going, keep faith in yourself. You can do it and it does get easier.

    Have you made a mistake as s nurse?

    I need advice

    being scared is a good thing - it shows you take the responsibility seriously. You can do it and it does get easier as you go along, there were times i did not think i would survive my first weeks, let alone months or a year - but i did and it gets a little less overwhelming and you gain a little more confidence each day. Just keep telling yourself you can do it, believe in yourself and dont be scared to ask for help, no one starts out an experienced nurse, everyone starts right where you are now. "Courage isn't the absence of fear. It is moving forward in spite of it." I love this quote, says it all really.

    Agency Nursing Adelaide

    We use HCA and YNA at work - aged care. From all accounts both are really good. Im pretty sure HCA does hospitals as well as aged care.

    Staff on Resident Sexual Abuse?

    I am stunned that the cna is still there after the first incident!! I dont think i could continue to work for any organisation that would even think about trying to cover something like this up. I dont have any advice thats is different to whats given but wanted to say well done for taking it to the ADON - the world would be a better place if more people did what is right even if its the harder option.
