  • Re: RE:Do you feel your board of nursing is working for you?

  • RE:long term care issues

    Is there some type of written document you can use/create that you can both sign at the time of the switch? Like a sign in/sign out type of thing. Ex. 12n:Nancy Nurse, LPN releasing narc. keys to Nancy Nurse, Rn supervisor for lunch break. and you both 'sign out' the keys to the Rn supervisor. Then when you come back from break, do the same ...

This&nbsp;article was based on the Seagro national&nbsp;study&nbsp; ...
