A typical day at work
Staff Nurse, RN (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – November 30, 2014
A typical day at works consists of beginning with bedside reports, then patient assessments, followed by charting pt assessments, then usually I begin passing put morning medications until about 9- to 10:00 am. Depending on the patient, IVs may have to be started, other medications given, wound care changes are not uncommon. Surgical patients require more pan control as well as disconnecting JP drains and wound changes. I make sure they are ambulating with physical therapy, and all of my patients are receiving adequate nutrition. 2 or 3 patient discharged may be required in one day, and generally, I receive new pts, which require assessments and medication. I'm required to view all pt orders, as well as check the pt's lab values, and whatever else I am required to do.
great staff and team work
