The school and curriculum are good. I like the unit. It is just me instructor that I am not a fan of at the moment. Every other instructor was great so far.
As for being a go-getter.
I was looking for my patient's chart which was MIA. Asked 3 people where it may have been and they told me outside the room. It wasn't there, at the nurse's station or in the patient's room.
The nurse was too busy to give report since she was in the middle of a med pass, and I hadn't had access to their computer.
So yeah, I'm. Not sure how I could know what meds the patient was on given the circumstances.
All I knew about this patient was that they came in for wheezing on admission.
Turned out, they had a long history and had come up from ICU the night before.
Oh yeah, and we don't go to the clinical night before. We aren't allowed to:
So there is no possible way I could know what their 7am meds were at that given moment.
Later that day I got the SBAR sheet and report from the nurse, got vitals, assessed my patient, washed her hair for her, passed afternoon meds, talked to her about her extensive history, and checked her sugar q2h and maintained her insulin drip with the RN.
If I'm allowed to be there on time I can get things done.
