You have hit the nail on the head! "I feel like 7 patient is too much and how can you expect to give quality care for patient when you have that much patient." Management usually does not care about the compassionate, caring aspect of nursing...they see numbers. How easy is your documentation system to navigate, have you completed all of the new little addendum's and add ons to programs, do you have missed or late meds and why,transfers, discharges, new admits? All of these things create unrealistic expectations for some of us and we are stuck after shift completing paperwork, missing lunch/breaks and so it goes. A lot of new nurses see this workload and say, "Ok, I can get all the paperwork done and my patients will look great on paper, but I'll be damned if I can spend time with such and such or so and so". Delegation is key to so much and many nurses fail to use this acquired skill and resource properly. Good luck out there!
