Anyways , we document on a notepad (medical charting) and a communication log (which is just basic communication between us medical personnel).
Anyways , there is a lazy low education worker (Britney) who keeps NOT transcribing physicians orders and not communicating these new orders to us nurses. So this low education worker ignored the med order and did not give the med to a patient who is suffering form infection. She also takes the notepad charger home to where it affects us nurses from charting because the battery will run low on notepad if not charged.
So I wrote this in the communication log:
Patient day went well... in addition our notepad charger is unavailable Britney has it. our boss has reached out to her to bring it back. Battery life on 30% may gave to use paper chart until she brings charger. Patient on blank med now her initial dose was supposed to be x day but nurse on x day did not administer not document so I initiated initial dose along with transcription of MD order. Last dose date is no XDate.
Yes, this is ridiculous at my local hospital, you got to watch the Nursing Assistants they are supposed to give a patient medication and it never happens, I had the same thing happen when I was in the hospital and had to call for the Nurse on duty so she did it for me yes that would be confrontational on the job.
Yes they do that shit all the time its annoying. Maybe its their lack of education I don't know but they act like bird brains.
Confrontational what I wrote?
@Uptowngirl88 I agree with you
