  1. Hi, I've worked in LTC for the past 15 years in 3 different facilities. The most recent facility I work in, the DON claims it is a state regulation that she cannot work the floor if census is above a certain number. I have never heard of any such reg...
  2. Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    It's not that, it's just a nicer response than "none of your business" and I'd rather not get into a debate with co-workers about the vaccine. I prefer to stay neutral at work.
  3. Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    I haven't read through all the comments, but just wanted to answer the question. Me personally I chose to NOT get the vaccine. I have not had Covid, even after working in a Covid unit for weeks. I have heard several people grumbling about how they ca...
  4. No to full PPE, regular surgical masks yes. I'm on the fence about weekly testing, but lean toward no. Maybe in hot spots.
  5. Is anyone else holy crap concerned?

    Why can't people be accountable for themselves and their own choices? If Trump jumped off a bridge, then others did the same thing, is it his fault those people made their own choice to also jump off a bridge? Everyone knows people should not be taki...
  6. You cannot fairly state these are all facts and I'm sorry, but I find it very disheartening to see a nurse spreading this kind of fear and misinformation. The fact is statistically most people who get this virus DO recover and with the prevalence of ...
  7. Family member being tested?

    I work in an LTC and if any of our employees answer "yes" to the question on their screening forms about household members having symptoms they are not allowed to work. They would have to quarantine for 14 days or could come back if the household mem...
  8. LTC and Covid-19

    We are not accepting any new admissions right now at my LTC/rehab facility. Only readmissions (residents returning from the hospital). We currently have no covid19 cases.
  9. As a manager in an LTC I just want to give my experience with the struggle right now to get PPE. Our main supplier is giving us literally NOTHING. Everything is on back order. We have over 50 open orders right now for gowns and masks from different m...
  10. Nurse manager at an LTC here. We have discussed having staff wear masks at all times, but supply is uncertain so I'm not sure we will take that step at this time. We have a decent stockpile of surgical masks and some N95's but we don't want to burn t...
  11. Problem with reference from previous employer

    Well, I decided to fork over 30 bucks for one of those professional reference checking services so we'll see what they say!
  12. Reported to the board, don't know what to expect, help!

    I agree with all the others! Contact an attorney immediately. That UA would never hold up in a court of law because the chain of custody was broken. There are certain steps that need to be taken when collecting/testing a UA sample because of this kin...
  13. PLEASE HELP!

    That is terrible! So what is a person supposed to do, not work at all? So you can't work any job, even if it doesn't require licensure? I was able to work at any non-nursing job that didn't require a nursing licensce without supervision while in the ...
  14. Problem with reference from previous employer

    I am sorry, I know the feeling RNKellie and I know there are many others who are struggling with finding a job, it was almost 2 years before I was able to get the job I have now, and during that time I had to do low paying, non-nursing jobs through t...
  15. Hello, this is my first post here, hope everyone is doing well. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or how they handled this type of situation. Six years ago I worked at a hospital and was caught diverting a prescription. Bascially, I...
