Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – 4 west post surgical – June 5, 2012
breakfast in am, receive report from night shift while making walking rounds and introduce yourself to each patient and fill out the board in each room with information and telephone numbers and plan of care for the day. check chart for orders and give report to PCA/CNA on care of patient, check medication record to make sure all meds are available, if not - go ahead and order from pharmacy. all documentation is computerized charting and each patient has an arm band with scan code, you ask name/date of birth then scan arm band. i learn standing orders for surgical (prostate, colon, hernia, neck, breast, appendix, gallbladder, mouth, penile prothesis and orthopedics) procedures and more. management under staff at times but co-workers are terrefic at working together to help each other. the hardest part of my job is when a patient go bad or expire. the most enjoyable part of my job is the relationship with my surgeons and doctors. we have OOPS meeting to check for near misses at the end of the shift or the beginning of the shift.
