I have most recently been a Charge Nurse scheduling daily work assignments for two other nurses and four CNAs. It was my responsibility to oversee the work being done on my unit as well as take a Resident caseload of my own. I entered new orders if needed, collaborated with physicians and management to best facilitate care of the Residents on the unit – more... dealt with disagreements between co-workers and/or Residents and staff. I, also, referred these to upper management if unable to resolve on the unit; or if they exceeded the realm of my responsibility. I, also, adjusted the assignments of the staff throughout the day to accommodate changes in the census or other pertinent happenings. I did discharges occasionally as needed. – less
