The other day I had to call a rapid on a patient at shift change. I stayed for the rapid (I was the primary nurse) and gave a stat med that was ordered after the patent stabilized. By this time, it was nearly 1 hour after shift change. I gave report to the oncoming nurse, asked her if she needed me to stick around then left when she said no. I had to return that night so wanted to get home to sleep.I got an e-mail from my supervisor asking why I didn't stay to transfer the patient. I didn't stay because at that point, the patient didn't have a bed on another unit and as the patient was stable, I didn't see a reason to wait around. Apparently, I should have stuck around and waited the 30min before they got a bed. I feel like a colossal screw up right now. I have been a nurse for 4 years but only 2 of those have been in acute care (I worked LTC for 2 years) and I do struggle with RR's and Codes. I am now second guessing myself. Today I just want to curl up and cry, not go into work. I'll go because we are short staffed. So, should i have stayed?
