Patient-oriented nursing professional with 6 years of hands-on experience in delivering quality direct and indirect patient care to individuals in skilled nursing settings, 2 of which as a nurse. Fosters relationships with patients, caregivers, and coworkers to drive patient care goals and advance nursing philosophies.
At this facility I worked as a floor nurse on the subacute/rehab unit and was then given the position of Charge Nurse in January of 2020.
As a floor nurse it was my responsibility to administer medications, treatments, and implement care plans for my patients. On the subacute unit I became very familiar working with IV machines/ medications, routine injections and mixed injections, wound care of various stages, education on a variety of wound v.a.c. equipment, working closely with doctors to strategize a plan unique to each patient to ensure their safety at the facility and with the goal of going home. This position allowed me to build a strong rapport with each of my patient's- creating a safe environment where they could come to me with any concerns about themselves, other patients, or our staff. Having a relationship where my patient's trust me boosted their motivation to get home and work together as a team to reach their goals.
This Charge Nurse position has given me an entirely new set of skills. I work closely with doctors to ensure patients receive necessary orders or changes to their care plan. I have become well versed with the Matrix system, creating orders, order sets, care plans, and managing medications/refills to decrease the amount of errors and making sure the nurses on the unit have adequate medications for their patients. The role of being the charge nurse for my unit has also built up my skills with communication, directing staff in a manner to work as a team and care for our patients in the safest, best way. Delegating tasks, fixing scheduling holes, and covering for call outs.
Responsibilities include preparing, administering, and documenting various medications and treatments for residents as ordered by the physician, administering and tracking controlled substances, assessing resident's health and comfort, updating medication lists and orders, performing physical and mental assessments, creating and updating care plans for residents, communicating efficiently with residents, families, and staff, delegation of tasks and the supervision of the CNAs on my shift.
